A Particular Man

It’s 1945. Edgar, son of Clem, brother of Aida, has died in a Far East Prisoner of War Camp and the Everett family are struggling to come to terms with their loss. And then along comes Starling, the man who loved Edgar and knew him to the end. When Starling insinuates himself into the family home, powerful yearnings tangle together in a tight, dark, sexy and romantic tale about life and love in the aftermath of war.

‘Glaister has the uncomfortable knack of putting her finger on things we most fear, of exposing the darkness within.’
– Independent on Sunday

‘ In A Particular Man, Glaister examines the emotional and psychological aftermath of the Second World War through the story of one family and the stranger who inserts himself into their lives. The authentic voices of her complex characters take you back in time and yet manage to feel modern at the same time. A stunning blend of historical fiction, page-turning psychological suspense and compelling emotional drama. A gripping, unsettling and heartbreaking read.’
