This seductive debut novel crackles with eroticism and suspense. Exploring the relationship between sexuality and identity, it provides an astonishingly vivid glimpse into one woman's inner life.
On the surface, Julia Sterling's life is enviable. She lives on Manhattan's East Side, is married to a renowned psychiatrist, deeply loves her stepson and is forging a career as a journalist.
When a writing assignment exposes Julia to telephone sex, she glimpses a world that stirs her erotic fantasies but threatens her carefully constructed reality.
As she probes her emotional and sexual connections to the men she knows and several she will never meet, she confronts evil, perversity and her own passions.
