It's been fourteen years since Jinx's mother was brutally stabbed to death in their home in East London. Then, out of nowhere, Lemon arrives on her doorstep. An old friend of her mother's, he wants to revisit the events leading to that terrible night. Over the course of one weekend they strip away the layers of the past to lay bare a story full of jealousy and tragic betrayal.

    " This book gives an insight into the feelings and motivations of
    Shakespeare's Iago. Lemon pulls the strings and moves the characters
    in ways that would leave a chess master in check before he makes his second move. "
