A complicated classification as this is a book that I've had since Wakefield started publishing their classics of Australian crime fiction. It's also a book that I read years ago, so this was a reread. Which I've now finished so it's not even technically "Currently Reading"...
From the Blurb:
'The blood of Adonis, thought Sarah, remembering the church that was built like a pagan temple, Coquelicot rouge - the symbol of a dying man whose blood stained the hillside in spring.'
Sara Lane, abandoning her French lover for the brilliant Lebanese sunshine, believes that the day will belong to her alone. But when a street bomb hurls her into the arms of a dangerously handsome Syrian colonel, she finds herself trapped once again.
