In this collection of short stories, the author dabbles in and out of the occult. The reader meets Mrs Da Silva a 65-year-old matriarch of Carnival's Rebel War Band who wins the heart of a postman, and a widow who commemorates the death of her husband by winning a taverna's dance competition.

A fabulous, prize-winning storyteller, Melville, author of The Ventriloquist's Tale, has the gift of transporting her reader into the heart of her setting, whether it be Guyana, Andalusia, Lagos, London or Prague: a ruthless South American president returns to the scenes of his student days at the London School of Economics; vast Mrs de Silva sashays around Notting Hill at carnival time, a company chairman meets his nemesis at the Lord Mayor's banquet - wherever she casts her eye, Melville manages to bring the scene immediately alive. Beneath each sparkling surface lurks a teasing, haunting spirit. Dazzling stories - not to be missed. (Kirkus UK)
