Publisher's Summary

Lise is thin, neither good-looking nor bad-looking. One day she walks out of her office, acquires a gaudy new outfit, adopts a girlier tone of voice, and heads to the airport to fly south. On the plane she takes a seat between two men. One is delighted with her company, the other is deeply perturbed. So begins an unnerving journey into the darker recesses of human nature.
Read by Dame Judi Dench, and originally released on cassette in 1996, this is the first time that this shocking masterpiece has been made available as an audio download, to coincide with the book's shortlisting for the Lost Booker Prize 2010.

Simply sublime. Beautifully read and suitably cold-hearted.Good length for a singlr listen. Bracing and gripping as a thriller.

Judi Dench Makes This Experience!

Any additional comments?

I thought the book a bit light on everything. By the time it ended, I would have helped see off the central character! I love Judi's reading!
