Summary: An English porcelain dealer finds what appears to be a perfect wife on a trip to Copenhagen but is unaware of her dark past. The Watership Down author moves from animal tales to supernatural thrillers, and fails spectacularly -- thanks to pretentiousness, bad sex scenes and Scottish accents even Mel Gibson would blanch at. (this was suggested by Kerry, but I can't find her name on the list ... She chose it, saying it was her mother's favourite book, and people always had a strong reaction to it - we certainly did!)
