When old school friends get together it's supposed to be a laugh - but not when you've got something to hide...

'Sleep-sabotagingly moreish' - Cosmopolitan When Susie decides to invite her old school friends for a reunion she tells herself that it's just about showing off. It's about letting Amanda, Izzy and Tamsin, see how well she's done, with her successful career as an artist, her gorgeous house in France, her deliciously louche boyfriend. But the truth is that this is a dark plan. A plan that could make or break her seemingly perfect life...and she knows it. As the old friends gather at Susie's for a long weekend of catching up and comparisons, it is clear that despite their lives having taken very different turns, they are all still haunted by a dark and common past. They each know that up until now they have been treading water -- waiting for the inevitable moment when they have to face the truth. The question is, now that the time has come, who will sink and who will swim?

An unassuming young woman from a quiet London suburb. Picture the scene: A summer job at the beautiful Villa Medici in the Tuscan hills. A group of glamorous teenagers, used to a life of privilege. Lavish parties, heady sun-soaked days, backstabbing and bedhopping. Until someone goes too far. And nothing will ever be the same. Readers love Lizzy Barber's Out Of Her Depth: ‘Really believable characters, a great plot, a wonderful setting . . . felt like I was in Italy soaking up the sun’ ***** ‘A tantalisingly written suspense . . . and a premise that delivers. Delicious.’ ***** ‘A classic take on the unreliable narrator, a terrific page turner with themes of those with privilege versus those without’ ***** ‘This is one of those totally addictive psychological thrillers that has you reading 'just one more page' and ignoring everything else you need to do until you finish it’ *****

Edited with a Foreword by Leo de Freyne. It is impossible to write a synopsis of this book in terms of plot and themes. This is because it is a diary in form and, although cohesive, it has a myriad of themes. It is written over a period of twenty-six years and is set in six countries principally: Ireland, Spain, China, Poland, Estonia and the Sultanate of Oman. Other countries also appear: England, France, Germany, Russia and more. However, this is not a travel book, although travel is an important aspect of the book's structure. It is a story, though not a novel in the conventional sense of the word. The work is music-like in structure, with motifs reappearing both overtly and subtly. It is a work of philosophy, psychology, literary and art criticism, political and social commentary, and much more. The book is humorous too, and because all diarists take themselves somewhat seriously, some of the humour is not Patrick Black's intention.

(Limelight). "Basil Rathbone's book about himself...is better written than most books by or about actors and is more intellectually vigorous...Sherlock Holmes fans will be much interested in his remarks on the character with whom he has been so closely identified." Library Journal ; "Quite naturally full of memories, full of names, full of glimpses of stars of stage and screen of yesterday and today." New York Times Book Review
