Cape Town lawyer Peter Truman struggles to care for his wife, who is recovering from cancer, and to be a father to their daughter, so he agrees to hire an au pair.

"I found the experience rather like reading Ishiguro, calmly meandering through material until it is too late to realise that you have been led into an emotional labyrinth. A finely crafted book, as intelligent as it is compelling, that gathers its forces imperceptibly and draws the reader into its powerful conclusion." Frederik de Jäger, former Publishing Director, Penguin Books SA

Lawyer Owen Salmon has been a silk at the Johannesburg Bar since 1992. He is the author of Law Made Simple and Intellectual Property Made Simple.
