Product Description

From Library Journal

Malcolm Cook, fat and funny senior Crown prosecutor, meets Sarah Fortune, recently widowed, at a London dinner party. Sympathetic Sarah frees the obese Cook from self-pity, then disappears. He trims down, energizes himself, and, two years later, searches for Sarah, now a free-spirited lawyer with several "kindly" male clients in the wings. Unknown to her, however, her firm's most important (and dangerous) client keeps her under surveillance as a possible replacement for his missing wife. Detailed with depth and dexterity, Fyfield's very human characters gradually reveal themselves as the plot advances. More talented, absorbing work from the author of Not That Kind of Place
Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From AudioFile

A kind, generous (especially sexually) young solicitor, Sarah Fortune, is stalked by a vicious misogynist. Charles Tysall, the picture of a romantic hero, collects beautiful redheads with the same passion and discernment with which he collects companies, wine and art, but for very different reasons. Actress Ruth Lenska is a flawless narrator, conveying in cool, crisp tones the spine-tingling action. Her vocalizations are perfect, and she has a special gift for portraying both female and male characters plausibly. This is a fascinating novel with psychologically damaged characters who are like images distorted in an old mirror. Listeners will be both intrigued with the characters and gripped by the plot.
