Fiction at its finest.' Eley WilliamsLondon, New Year's Eve.

Snow falls on a Georgian mansion, vibrating with the festivities of a masquerade ball within.

Middle-aged divorcee Anna stands alone - until the clock chimes midnight and a mysterious figure kisses her on the mouth.

Thus begins a dance of seduction charged by clandestine romances swirling around them, whipping the ball into an frenzy of operatic proportions - until the night climaxes, revealing unease beneath the glitter ...

A comet in her day.' Terry Castle
