 More about the book!

A literary tour-de-force of power, guilt and obsession – two people stalk each other through the shadowy, tangled web of the past – man and woman caught in a dangerous game of confession, each partly predator and partly prey …

In the Garden of the Fugitives, the new novel from Ceridwen Dovey, will be out in March from Penguin Random House SA.

In the Garden of the Fugitives is a thrilling psychological examination of what happens when the lines are blurred between victim and predator, between loyalty and obsession.
