Summary
Critically acclaimed author Graham Joyce returns with a sexy, suspenseful,and slightly supernatural novel set 1976 England during the hottest summer in living memory, in a seaside resort where the past still haunts the present. David, a college student, takes a summer job at a run-down family resort in a dying English resort town. This is against the wishes of his family . . . because it was at this resort where David's biological father disappeared fifteen years earlier. But something undeniable has called David there. A deeper otherworldliness lies beneath the surface of what we see. The characters have a suspicious edge to them . . . David is haunted by eerie visions of a mysterious man carrying a rope, walking hand-in-hand with a small child . . . and the resort is under siege by a plague of ladybugs. Something different is happening in this town. When David gets embroiled in a fiercely torrid love triangle, the stakes turn more and more menacing. And through it all, David feels as though he is getting closer to the secrets of his own past. This is a darkly magic and sexy book that has a strong suspense line running through it. It's destined to continue to pull in a wider circle of readers for the exceptionally talented Graham Joyce

Summary
In 1976, college student David Barwise takes a summer job at a decaying resort on the English coast. His family opposes his going because 15 years earlier his father had died there. But David feels a strong pull to the town; after he arrives, he experiences ghostly visions of a man with a little boy and falls in love with a married woman. An oppressive heat wave and extremist anti-immigrant tension add to the disturbing mood, and the strangeness gradually builds to terror as the secrets David's family had kept emerge from the shadows. Along with the creepy suspense, a well-crafted plot and attractive characters make this tale irresistible. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
