When Stuart Font decides to throw a housewarming party in his new flat, he invites all the people in his building - three flippant young girls, a lonely spinster, a man with a passion for classical history, and a woman determined to drink herself to death. After some deliberation, he even includes the unpleasant caretaker and his wife. There are a few other friends he'd considered inviting, but he definitely does not want his girlfriend Claudia there as he would also have to invite her lawyer husband. As it turns out, the party will be one everyone remembers. Living in a building opposite Stuart's, in reclusive isolation, is a young, beautiful Asian woman, known as Tigerlily. As though from some strange urban fairytale, she emerges infrequently, to exert a terrible spell. And Stuart's worried parents have even more cause for concern about their handsome but hopelessly naive and under-motivated son. Darkly humorous and piercingly observant of human behavior, Ruth Rendell has created an extraordinarily compelling story of our lives and crimes.
