Outsiders sometimes see things other don't . . . and that can be dangerous.
A pair of emerald green and gold parrots have been disturbing the peace of Katherine Tennison's London garden for some time when a further disruption arrives at her door, in the form of dazzlingly beautiful Italian siblings Antonella and Matteo Fullardi.
Children of Katherine's old school friend Ann, who married an Italian leather-goods heir, the pair are now all grown up. Very rich, and very troubled, they prove a catalyst for a whole series of events which reveal the Tennisons' quiet family life to be less perfect than it initially seems . . .

The Times Magazine A well-executed social satire Daily Mail Her prose buzzes with pitch-perfect modernity Observer A sparkling tale of seduction and suspense Tatler A real sense of menace pervades Good Housekeeping An incisive commentary on life in the capital today ... compelling ...her pared-down prose has all the clean, unobtrusive elegance of an Armani jacket. The Lady Sharply observed and surprisingly salty, this is an engrossing second novel from the editor of British Vogue.
