    Almost twenty years after forbidding him to contact her, Vita receives an email from
    Royce. Once, he was her benefactor and she was one of his brightest protUgUes. Now
    Royce is ailing and Vita's career has stalled, and both have a need to settle accounts.


    Beyond their shared, murky history, both have lost beloveds, one to a strange
    disappearance, another to an untimely death. And both are trying to free themselves from deeper pasts - Vita from the inheritance of her birthplace, Royce from the grip of the ancient city of Pompeii, and the secrets of the Garden of the Fugitives. Between
    what's been repressed and what has been excavated are disturbances that reach back
    through decades, even centuries.


    Profoundly addictive and unsettling, In the Garden of the Fugitives is a masterpiece of
    duplicity and counterplay, as brilliantly illuminating as it is surprising - about the obscure
    workings of guilt in the human psyche, the compulsion to create and control, and the
    dangerous morphing of desire into obsession. It is the breakthrough work of one of
    Australia's most exciting emerging writers.
