Description of "The Moon's Complexion"

A distant tragedy turns the lives of two strangers upside down when, newly arrived from England, they meet in India and discover a secret that binds them together as they flee from a dangerous stalker.

Bangalore, 1991. Ashok Rao, a brilliant young Indian doctor, has returned from England to take part in an arranged marriage.

Who is the intriguing Englishwoman that seeks him out there? Journalist Hannah Petersen is being pursued across India by a sinister killer—but why?

This exotic tale of love across cultural boundaries unfolds within the mystical heat of Southern India, Sri Lanka and the icy countryside of England in winter.

"The combination of cliff-hangers and carefully observed descriptions of Indian traditions, food, temples and landscapes becomes utterly irresistible. Will appeal to anyone who enjoys a skilfully constructed page-turner." —Sophia Furber, The London Student Newspaper

"A wonderfully written love story set in Southern India. A captivating read." — Shelf review, Ottakar’s Bookshop, Guildford

"Fantastic read—I read it within a day. Couldn't put it down. Good knowledge of cultures from writer without it being pushed down our throats. We get so close to the characters. Loved it!" Gill James, author of Lines in the Sand and Jason's Crystal
