內容簡介


「如果《天才雷普利》的主角換成女性,地點設在摩洛哥的丹吉爾,讀起來就會是Tangerine。」─Vogue雜誌

艾莉絲和露比是大學時期的密友,艾莉絲是有錢的英國人,父母親因為一場火災喪生,露比則是從小就失去雙親,孤單長大。

兩人畢業後艾莉絲回到英國,結了婚,一九五六年隨著丈夫來到摩洛哥,先前的密友露比因為一場爭執已不再來往,但沒想到兩人卻在摩洛哥的丹吉爾重逢。

艾莉絲雖因為過去的爭執耿耿於懷,另一方面又因為不適應環境而感謝昔日好友的出現,露比再次帶著她走出空蕩的公寓,熟悉丹吉爾的環境。

好景不常,一股熟悉的緊繃感又再次出現在艾莉絲體內,敏感嬌弱的她覺得自己被露比給掌控,而丈夫又在此時失蹤,讓艾莉絲開始懷疑起自己的身邊的人事物……

本書雖為作者的出道作,但高超的寫作技巧和情節鋪陳,讓讀者感覺不到生澀,其中作者創造出的懸疑感,讓喜歡《天才雷普利》、希區考克電影的讀者,都會愛上這本小說!


'As if Donna Tartt, Gillian Flynn and Patricia Highsmith had collaborated in a screenplay to be filmed by Hitchcock - suspenseful and atmospheric' Joyce Carol Oates

The perfect read for fans of Daphne du Maurier and Patricia Highsmith, set in 1950s Morocco, Tangerine is a gripping psychological literary thriller.

The last person Alice Shipley expected to see since arriving in Tangier with her new husband was Lucy Mason. After the horrific accident at Bennington, the two friends - once inseparable roommates - haven't spoken in over a year. But Lucy is standing there, trying to make things right.

Perhaps Alice should be happy. She has not adjusted to life in Morocco, too afraid to venture out into the bustling medinas and oppressive heat. Lucy, always fearless and independent, helps Alice emerge from her flat and explore the country.

But soon a familiar feeling starts to overtake Alice - she feels controlled and stifled by Lucy at every turn. Then Alice's husband, John, goes missing, and Alice starts to question everything around her: her relationship with her enigmatic friend, her decision to ever come to Tangier, and her very own state of mind.

Tangerine is an extraordinary debut, so tightly wound, so evocative of 1950s Tangier, and so cleverly plotted that it will leave you absolutely breathless.
