the Lovers by renowned French-Australian writer Catherine Rey is an arresting tale, a mystery with a low burn tension, which revolves around the disappearance of Lucie Bruyere. The novel unveils the truth about her charismatic yet subtly controlling partner, the world-famous artist Ernest Renfield. The suspenseful story, both police investigation and multi-voiced Rashomon, ends in a dramatic and powerful illumination.
The book cover was designed by artist and designer Phil Day, using a painting by Rob Machaffie, and will feature a promotional blurb by writer Michelle de Krester.
