Eight Months on Ghazzah Street

By Hilary Mantel

Published Jan 2010

When Frances Shore joins her engineer husband in Jeddah she is warned not to ask questions… Bored by days spent gossiping or patrolling with the cockroach spray, she begins to speculate about her neighbours and the empty flat above her. At first she believes the expat rumours that it is used as a lovers’ tryst. Then a darker truth begins to unfold.
