Joolz' second novel that The Independent called "A really imaginative and original book….with a very nasty twist in the tail" – 2002
Alma's life is in free fall: her husband's done the dirty on her and not even her two closest friends can sort her out. So she runs from her Bradford existence to start again in Spain, where her parents have a villa. Here a chance encounter with members of the CDS Foundation changes everything for Al.
The locals condemn the Foundation as a dangerous cult but to Al it seems to offer a spiritual haven – at first. Because under the surface lurks a sinister reality. What do the Foundation leaders expect from their students? What really goes on at their Gatherings? And what price will Al have to pay for witnessing the horrific truth?
