This gripping and hilarious thriller cleverly combines the political and the supernatural. It is the story of Sarah Lloyd, an attention-seeking young woman from a wealthy newspaper family based in London.
When Sarah stays with her cousins in Ireland, she and her Uncle Seamus (not a blood relation) fall in love. Even Seamus’s dark and secret other life does not deter Sarah and, if anything, it increases her devotion to him.
However, when the couple move to London, Sarah’s life is blighted by the perverse attentions and intense jealousy of her boss, Dr Blenkinsop, whose destructive influence rapidly leads to appalling tragedy.
