‘As if Donna Tartt, Gillian Flynn and Patricia Highsmith had collaborated in a screenplay to be filmed by Hitchcock – suspenseful and atmospheric’ Joyce Carol Oates
The perfect read for fans of Daphne du Maurier and Patricia Highsmith, set in 1950s Morocco, Tanger
Tangerine is an interesting novel, set largely in the 1950’s in a steamy Tangiers
This psychological thriller simmers with brooding tension and follows the lives of two young women, Alice Shipley and Lucy Mason, both former roommates at a prestigious Bennington College in Vermont.
Alice was an heiress and Lucy a scholarship girl. Both were close friends at first during their time at the college but their relationship ended on a sour note when a tragedy strikes one of them.
When Lucy turns up totally unexpectedly and uninvited on Alice’s doorstep in Tangiers where Alice is living with her new husband John, the story takes unexpected twists and there are disturbing revelations and confessions.
With echoes of ‘Single White Female’, the story is obviously not going to end well for any of those involved.
A compelling, disturbing and chilling read about a relationship that started as a friendship but ended up as something entirely different.
