Description

Inseparable since childhood, Jack and Gin Rathbone inhabit a world of privilege and eccentricity into which no strangers are permitted. Until, that is, Jack falls passionately in love with Vera Savage: a flamboyant and reckless artist over ten years his senior. When they flee to New York City within weeks of meeting, Gin is forced to witness their relationship unfold from a bruised, bereft distance. But when Jack and Vera move to Port Mungo, a seedy town in the mangrove swamps of Honduras, Gin is afforded the opportunity to stake her claim to her brother's life again. This feverish world of tropical impulses and artistic ambition leads, inevitably, to a death swathed immediately in mystery, as the various imperatives of passion, narcissism, and creativity hold them all in relentless thrall.

Professional reviews

"Gin Rathbone led a sequestered life with her brother, Jack, until he fell in love with Vera Savage, an eccentric artist 10 years his senior. The story reflects the color of its settings--London, New York, and Honduras, where Jack runs off to with his new wife and where passion is at its highest. The story's intensity, which focuses on several generations of family and the mysterious death of a child, is matched by the ardor of Jennifer Van Dyck's narration. She is elegant in speech and diction. Her compelling energy reflects the dark atmosphere as the listener awaits the unraveling of the truth at the heart of this story. J.P.
