“Harwood, master of creeping Victorian horror, does it again . . . Twisted in every sense of the word and wonderfully atmospheric.”—Booklist Confused and disoriented, Georgina Ferrars awakens in a small room in Tregannon House, a remote asylum in England. She has no memory of the past few weeks. The doctor, Maynard Straker, tells her that she admitted herself under the name Lucy Ashton, then suffered a seizure. When she insists he has mistaken her for someone else, Dr. Straker sends a telegram to her uncle, who replies that Georgina Ferrars is at home with him in London: “Your patient must be an imposter.” Suddenly her voluntary confinement becomes involuntary. Who is the woman in her uncle’s house? Georgina’s perilous quest to free herself takes us from a cliffside cottage on the Isle of Wight to the secret passages of Tregannon House and into a web of hidden family ties on which her survival depends. “Redolent with a sense of foreboding . . . This gothic tale will sweep you up into the very heart of Victorian England. A splendid read!”—Historical Novel Society, Editors’ Choice “A richly textured . . . [and] masterfully constructed narrative . . . Readers are guaranteed a thoroughly diverting time in Harwood’s not-to-be-trusted hands.”—The Independent (UK) “The crisp prose and twisty plot will encourage many to read this in one sitting.”—Publishers Weekly

Dramatic scenes of exodus are played out every day on European soil: refugees stream out of Albania, there are displaced populations in the Caucasus & in the former Yugoslavia. Central & eastern Europe, once a land of emigration, has now become a region of both transit & refugee settlement. Guy S. Goodwin-Gill, a specialist in refugee law, appeals for a more effective application of existing international laws & instruments on refugees. Together with the Council of Europe, Mr Goodwin-Gill asks that European countries share the "refugee burden" more equitably, thus assuring decent living conditions for people fleeing from war, persecution & poverty.
