It bothers me that after a successful debut novel, her next four were rejected. Her commitment is enviable. I must read this book!

Guess not much has changed since then - many fine authors are still having problems getting their books in front of agents and publishers. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...

Simpson's Luke Thanet series is very good (although Thanet seems a little too perfect sometimes), but I hadn't heard of this standalone work. The plot reminds me somewhat of the works of Celia Fremlin (The Hours Before Dawn, Uncle Paul, Listening in the Dust) where women's legitimate fears are belittled and dismissed (mostly by make authority figures) and it is left to the women to investigate and expose the culprit.

That's an interesting comparison, Deb! Now I'll to hunt out a Fremlin book to re-read.
