A city and its people are in the terrifying grip of a killer. Singling out prostitutes, the face of his latest victim stares out of every newspaper, haunting the women who walk the streets. But life and work go on. Brenda, mother of three, cant afford to give up, while Audrey, now in her forties, desperately goes on "working the cars." And then, when another woman is savagely murdered, her lover Jean takes desperate measures. Pat Barker is the author of the widely hailed Regeneration trilogy, which includes "The Ghost Road," winner of the 1995 Booker Prize.

'Barker's creative vision is as in touch with the psychologically primordial as Melville's' HARPER'S 'Swift, spare, and utterly absorbing . [Barker] makes us see her characters from within, as they see themselves, and thereby reveals the full individuality and humanity of women who have got short shrift both in literature and in life' NY TIMES BOOK REVIEW 'Barker's talent for gently sifting through the hidden depths of the human psyche is awesome' NOVA
