Coming Soon - 6th September 2008
Outrageous artist August Stockyard - attention-seeking heir to a media and property empire - dies in typically theatrical fashion ... and the mischief that drove his life's work culminates in the bequest of adjoining houses to his pregnant girlfriend, Cressida, and to his former comrade-in-arms, Louise Moon.
But was August's demise simple suicide, was it the result of a kinky sex game that went wrong? Had he cleverly planned to shame his distant father and take revenge on his ruthless uncle, the obese and grasping millionaire who now has his sights set on Louise?
Or was it a game from the grave to throw the two women with whom August had been obsessed into a fight to the death as reluctant and mismatched neighbours?
Pincushion is the third and latest in a series of psychological thrillers that chart the adventures of Louise Moon and her precarious love affair with brilliant but unconventional pathologist and former boss Chas Androssoff.
Powerful in its metaphoric compulsiveness, bleak, disturbing, intelligent ... DM Thomas
