This is an addictive psychological drama about a disastrous love affair. At the age of 23, Rachel had an illicit relationship with a guy in the office, one that quickly spiralled out of control. Now in her early thirties and living alone in a flat in Camden, Rachel is struggling to make sense of what she set in motion. She writes from diaries, from photographs and from memory to explore questions of love, obsession and the choice she made, and in doing so she recounts the chain of events that led to her relationship's shocking end. The novel opens with the assertion 'This is not a confession' - but Rachel's lover is dead, her life is in pieces, and as her story unfolds we're never quite sure where the real truth lies.
