Slow Furies

Alice fills her empty life with many things — favours for friends, a part–time journalism job, gossip with her village priest... and other people's lives.

When chance opens up to her curiosity the devious complexities of her neighbours' hidden past, she is unable to resist the temptation to find out more. And when she finally begins to understand that she knows more than she wishes to know about them — about dark, intense Olivia with her precarious grip on sanity; about languid, diffident, attractive Paul with his strange and guilty secret — it is too late to turn back. She finds she is involved. She has become an agent of revelation, against her will. She precipitates a terrible uncovering of things. And it may be also that she has found — briefly and too late — the love that her empty life so craves.

Slow Furies might be a ghost story.

It might be a love story.

It is certainly a mystery story.

And perhaps, too, it is a kind of tragedy.
