In Sheila Kohler's riveting new novel, Kate returns from Paris to her home in South Africa for the funeral of her sister, Marion, who was killed in a car accident that left her husband Louis (the driver) in intensive care. Amid loving reminiscences about growing up with Marion on their parents' Johannesburg estate, Kate begins to reconsider the nature of her sister's death, as, from his hospital bed, Louis recalls his early fascination with the inseparable sisters, his eventual meeting with them, and his seduction of Marion. The more Kate learns about Louis, the more suspicious of him she becomes, until, finally, her suspicions are confirmed--as the novel moves to its shocking but inevitable conclusion.
