Toby Hawk is a solitary boy in a family of Amazons. His mother, only

fifteen years older than him, is a painter on the brink of commercial

success. His great-aunt is a wealthy textile designer; her partner,

Liberty, a barrister. Meanwhile, eighteen-year-old Toby’s world remains a

small, closed round of school, domesticity and surfing the Net at

night. But everything changes when his mother takes up with a

fascinating but enigmatic scientist, Roehm. Patricia Duncker’s gripping

novel is a disturbing tale of Oedipal passion. It is also an eerie

psychological ghost story in the European tradition, whose sources –

Freud, Faust and Frankenstein – haunt the pages.
