If you are looking for a gripping beach read, this book is it. If you have ever known a con artist and/or a pathological liar, you'll recognize that character and be appalled all over again. The tangerine of the title is a chameleon-like young woman who tracks down her former college roommate in Tangier. The plot, a cross between The Talented Mr. Ripley and the movie Body Heat, comes to its all-but-inevitable ending, leaving the reader hoping for a sequel to even the score. Or to place a call to Interpol. Don't want to give away too much....

Not "great literature" but a wonderful book to disappear into for a weekend jaunt.
