Twenty-five years ago Charles Davis’s first novel made him a literary legend. But with his recent work savaged by reviewers, Charles has been paralyzed by self-doubt. Then fate hands him an unexpected muse. Emma Bowles is the young assistant Charles’s wife, Anne, hires to bring order to his pressured existence. Where Anne is sleek and elegant, Emma is awkward and self-effacing. But Charles glimpses the intriguing mysteries beneath her small-town demeanor. Soon he is obsessed with Emma, with understanding her, controlling her. By the time Anne realizes she wants this disturbing young woman out of their lives, it’s too late. All three are trapped in their own deceptions, and only a savage, shocking act can free them.
Sebastian Stuart is a native New Yorker who now lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
