Description
In Sarah Dunant's shocking and provocative new thriller Transgressions, the lines bleed between passion and violence, attraction and repulsion, pleasure and terror. Winner of England's prestigious Silver Dagger Award, Dunant presents readers with a new kind of heroine: Lizzie Skorvecky, a woman unafraid to fight back as a bizarre and intense drama escalates toward one incendiary moment of revenge.Lizzie lives alone in a sprawling London house. Determined to get on with her life after a nasty breakup with her boyfriend, Tom, she accepts an all-consuming job translating a Czech detective novel into English. At first, Lizzie laughingly dismisses the cliches in this hard-boiled fantasy world, but then puzzling events begin to occur in her own life that mirror the fictional brutality and violence she encounters every day in her literary work.Desperate and at a loss, Lizzie consults a local clergywoman to see if the interloper might be a poltergeist. One night, however, she awakens to a scene from every woman's nightmare, discovering that an-all-too-human culprit is toying with her sanity. In the harrowing days that follow, it takes every ounce of Lizzie's strength and cunning to match wits with the forces arrayed against her.Controversial and darkly erotic, Transgressions brings to its readers' waking hours the distrubing fears that plague each of us in the loneliest dead of night.

display_description Elizabeth is a modern woman. Smart. Independent. As sexual as she wants to be--with whomever she wants to be. But a breakup with her academic boyfriend has hit her harder than she cares to admit. And while her latest gig, translating a glitzy Czech thriller into English, offends her literary sensibilities, it arouses others with its steamy scenes of eroticism, violence, submission, and dominance.

Then, when her favorite Van Morrison CD disappears from its rack and her house is inexplicably violated, Elizabeth is afraid she's starting to lose it--she even consults a local vicar about the possibility of poltergeists.

But what this woman in the lovely Victorian is experiencing is not supernatural. Nor is it madness. For in the dead of night, she will suddenly come face-to-face with her tormentor. She will smell him, she will touch him, and she will make a choice. Then the real haunting will begin.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
