A Perfect Sentence

A portrait of a modern family in crisis, a moving love story and a chilling narrative of revenge, A Perfect Sentence moves swiftly from London through Florence, the South of France and Morocco and ends dramatically in Barcelona's cosmopolitan Barri Gotic.

Kier Buchan, a fifty-something Londoner who has recently been made redundant by the Open University, is disaffected and wryly bitter. He is the father of brainy Charlie who is heading for graduate school in America and of teenager Cat who is heading nowhere. His cool, sensible wife Fran feels his disquiet but cannot connect. Kier recounts his role in the break-up of his family and an entanglement in an inappropriate relationship with a much younger woman which he dares to hope will lead to an escape from his old self.


“It is exceptionally well written and the characters are well developed to the point where Cassie's intrigue and depth are palatable. I found it difficult to put down. A brilliant work about a tormented soul.”
