Dangerous People

By Lesley Hayes

Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


How well do people who have been friends for years really know each other? How often do they lie to themselves and to one another about their deepest desires and motivations? This comedy of manners has a serious message at its core. There are secrets that might wound, and old wounds that must be kept a secret. Jealousy drives a hard bargain in its passion to undermine the path of the heart. Violet has much to learn about the nature of love, although she already understands the persuasive power of obsession. Lewis is everybody’s friend, and wants above all to be loved. Osborne is caustic, clever and caddish. Sophie believes in magic. Drew believes in karma. Imogen believes life is out to get her. Beneath their urbane, artistic, middle-class exterior lurks something sinister, primal, dangerous. And how heavy is the hand of fate in deciding whether the effect they have on one another will bring triumph or disaster?

Lesley Hayes lives in Oxford, UK, and before becoming a psychotherapist she was regularly published in literary and women's magazines, and for two years had a weekly slot on BBC Radio Oxford reading her short stories. Her long and successful career as a psychotherapist over the ensuing years took her away from fiction writing, but was a fork in the road she never once regretted, and she used many of same creative skills and insights. During the past seven years she has given in gracefully to the compelling urge to write fiction again, and has so far published five novels: 'The Drowned Phoenician Sailor', 'A Field Beyond Time', 'Round Robin', 'Dangerous People' and 'The Other Twin'. All are available on kindle and in paperback. Additionally, four collections of short stories have been published on kindle: 'Oxford Marmalade', 'The Oscar Dossier', 'Without a Safety Net', and the aptly named 'Not Like Other People.' 'Through a Glass Darkly' is a compilation of her short stories published in paperback. As you might expect, now that the genie has once again escaped from the bottle, more will soon follow.
