As Marla tries to free her friend from the dual addictions of love and cocaine, she unravels a story of seduction and power in Columbia and of desire and betrayal in California. Caught in a web of deceptions, the threat of violence mounting around them, Marla decides to take on Lenny and his empire. But Lenny-like the drug he peddles-has no intention of letting Elly go.
“Polished, intelligent, and inventive . . . high-grade stuff, laced only with wit, a touch of feminism, and myriad, entertaining ambiguities.”
“An intricate psychological chess game . . . Sharp-edged humor, a devious, neo-Gothic plot that twists back on itself, and a lust for revenge impel the novel to its inexorable finale.”
“Ekes out the tension . . . increasingly thrilling as the pages fly by.”
–The Times (London)
