'GIRL ON THE TRAIN meets THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY under the Moroccan sun. Unputdownable' The Times

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.

Reviews

A plot as twisty as the streets of its dazzling Tangier setting - Daily Mail

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

Both eerie and thrilling, the tangled knot that binds these two female characters will keep you frantically turning the pages. Tangerine dabbles in dark backstory and psychological doubt, leaving me feeling as though I've gone to Tangier, with Daphne du Maurier's literary heir as my guide - Suzanne Rindell, author of The Other Typist

In her utterly transfixing debut, Christine Mangan deftly transports readers to Northern Africa at midcentury-the most glamorous possible milieu, and the ideal setting for a story of heated passion, in which friendship becomes obsession and, finally, a kind of madness - Rumaan Alam, author of Rich and Pretty

Assured and atmospheric - Guardian

Riveting - Woman and Home
