"Heaps of mystery and intrigue, a nice love story, and a great plot. Shuker is truly a gifted storyteller."
Terri is a talented art curator, stagnating in a dead end job in London. Her ex-boyfriend, Oliver, is stalking her. A post curating the retrospective of a famous but reclusive artist seems the perfect escape. Portrait painter, Peter Stedding, lives in the mountains of Provence, in a house he shares with his wife, daughter and eccentric sister, Celia. The setting is idyllic; the atmosphere is not. Peter is rude and obstructive, his household strained and silent.
The place holds secrets, stories no-one is allowed to tell, dark echoes of the past. Looking through Peter's old paintings, Terri finds a tantalising clue and soon she is caught up in a cat and mouse game in search of the truth. But whose past is she searching for? And whose hides the darkest shadows?
