Summary, etc.:
Mark Haddon's breathtaking novel reworks Shakespeare's "Pericles" into a parable for today. A harrowing plane crash leaves Maja, the pregnant wife of the unimaginably wealthy Philippe, is killed - but their daughter, Angelique, survives. Philippe's obsession with the girl's safety morphs into something sinister and grotesque. A young man named Darius, visiting Philippe with a business proposition, encounters Angelique and intuits their secret - he decides to rescue her, but the attempt goes awry.
