In Sarah Dunant's shocking and provocative new thriller Transgressions, the lines bleed between passion and violence, attraction and repulsion, pleasure and terror. Winner of England's prestigious Silver Dagger Award, Dunant presents readers with a new kind of heroine: Lizzie Skorvecky, a woman unafraid to fight back as a bizarre and intense drama escalates toward one incendiary moment of revenge.Lizzie lives alone in a sprawling London house. Determined to get on with her life after a nasty breakup with her boyfriend, Tom, she accepts an all-consuming job translating a Czech detective novel into English. At first, Lizzie laughingly dismisses the cliches in this hard-boiled fantasy world, but then puzzling events begin to occur in her own life that mirror the fictional brutality and violence she encounters every day in her literary work.Desperate and at a loss, Lizzie consults a local clergywoman to see if the interloper might be a poltergeist. One night, however, she awakens to a scene from every woman's nightmare, discovering that an-all-too-human culprit is toying with her sanity. In the harrowing days that follow, it takes every ounce of Lizzie's strength and cunning to match wits with the forces arrayed against her.Controversial and darkly erotic, Transgressions brings to its readers' waking hours the distrubing fears that plague each of us in the loneliest dead of night.
