The first of the Gorse Trilogy. On a summer holiday in Brighton with two fellow school-leavers, Ryan and Bell, Gorse is irresistibly drawn to the lovely but gullible Esther Downes. Realising that she and Ryan are strongly attracted to each other, he at first relishes the simple challenge of stealing her from his rival; but after the discovery that Esther possesses a reasonable sum of money, he sets in motion a plan that is ruthlessly calculated to destroy her.
A good reading copy. The spine is faded and the binding is slightly cocked. There is also a little creasing to the page edges. There is also a little highlighting to a few pages but the book remains perfectly readable.
