Hart's novels Oblivion, Damage and Sin have explored erotic obsession and love and death with an intensity and "a spare eloquence that is utterly compelling" - Cosmopolitan. McCrum's new novel Suspicion is a similarly rivetting tale of Commandment-busting passion and transgression that is also hauntingly acute and frighteningly familiar. "A major talent . . . an effortless elegance that puts him immediately ahead of the competition" - Standard.
