Product Description:

Francis Carson brilliant British novelist renowned for his lyrical prose his drinking and his womanizing was a free spirit who crashed through life. In February 1950 he was found dead in the Garden of Allah swimming pool. Diffident Quentin Castle-newly-married a lowly junior partner in his father's firm Castle Literary Agency-must convey this terrible news to the widow in Oxfordshire. Claire Carson's plight impoverished alone with three small children her dignity her desolation her deep blue eyes awaken in Quentin wholly new emotions. In a spasm of gallantry he promises to escort Francis's body home to England from California. Regent Films are making a movie of Carson's best known book in sun-splashed Hollywood. As a Brit accustomed to austere pinched post-war London Quentin navigates uneasily through artifice and opulence. The top executives at Regent treat him with conventional sympathy polite condescension and something obscure tinged with evasion. But these few days in California-and a weekend in Mexico-will change Quentin Castle forever. His subsequent choices-variously brilliant audacious and unethical-are enveloped in impenetrable layers of betrayal that will crack crumble and finally destroy.
