A writer picks up a beautiful woman on the train from London to Paris. But she is not as easy to pin down as he expected and their intense encounter becomes a game of cat-and-mouse along the corridors of the Eurostar and through the streets of Paris. Affecting cool, but being edged towards desperation, the man is forced to recognise the past that he and this elusive woman share.
Powerfully erotic and frighteningly brutal, this remarkable novel explores the power struggle between the writer and his muse, how a woman's life can be shaped and twisted in the name of art, a struggle that in the end can have only one victor.
