Books Info:

Dreams Of Rescue free pdf Why is Juliana always cast as the victim in her films? It's her eyes: 'they widen so nicely in terror'. In movies, she has been stabbed, bludgeoned and, once, impaled upon a decorative sword. Now it may be that her once-loving husband is trying to kill her - or has Juliana become too suggestible? The elements - a frozen corpse, a stalker and a high-voltage courtroom drama - echo her starring roles, but where is her romantic saviour? The police show no signs of being knights in shining armour- her lawyer just wants her money: life, she discovers, is very different from the movies. Even the charm of her lake-resort town turns out to be a facade, hiding a divorce-and-dysfunction cottage industry. Taut as a thriller and beautifully written, Dreams of Rescue turns the female-in-peril story on its head, illuminating the secrets of a dangerous marriage and creating a contemporary tale as powerful as the classics Rebecca and Gaslight.
