A decade ago, Julia Callaghan, now 29-years old, knew what it was like to be a movie star. Plucked from drama school and critically acclaimed in her first film, an incredible acting career seemed a certainty. But somehow it never happened. Her most successful role since has been her almost impervious self-delusion. And then Patrick, athletic, handsome and chronically dishonest, comes into her life. A one-night stand that enthrals Julia unfortunately doesn't have the same effect on him. And Patrick's finding it difficult to cope with the consequences. (Publisher's blurb, back cover).
