Details: Product Description NATIONAL BESTSELLER “A juicy melodrama cast against the sultry, stylish imagery of North Africa in the fifties.” —The New Yorker The last person Alice Shipley expected to see since arriving in Tangier with her new husband was Lucy Mason. After the accident at Bennington, the two friends—once inseparable roommates—haven’t spoken in over a year. But there Lucy was, trying to make things right and return to their old rhythms. Perhaps Alice should be happy. She has not adjusted to life in Morocco, too afraid to venture out into the bustling medinas and oppressive heat. Lucy—always fearless and independent—helps Alice emerge from her flat and explore the country.  But soon a familiar feeling starts to overtake Alice—she feels controlled and stifled by Lucy at every turn. Then Alice’s husband, John, goes missing, and Alice starts to question everything around her: her relationship with her enigmatic friend, her decision to ever come to Tangier, and her very own state of mind. Tangerine is a sharp dagger of a book—a debut so tightly wound, so replete with exotic imagery and charm, so full of precise details and extraordinary craftsmanship, it will leave you absolutely breathless. Optioned for film by George Clooney’s Smokehouse Pictures, with Scarlett Johansson to star Review “Maddening, gripping, enchanting—I’m at risk of running out of adjectives to describe just how wholly impressive this debut is. . . . Mangan has written a lush, vibrant, and unputdownable psychological suspense story that recalls the work of Patricia Highsmith in a voice all her own.” -- Crime by the Book “[Mangan] knows all the notes to hit to create lush, sinister atmosphere and to prolong suspense. . . . A satisfying, juicy thriller.” -- New York Times Book Review “Readers captivated by the flavor of international romance and intrigue, as in Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient, will enjoy the distorted psychological twists and turns.” -- Library Journal “Add a dose of suspense to your reading list. . . . A renewed friendship, a mysterious disappearance, and a world turned thrillingly upside down.” -- Southern Living “A juicy melodrama cast against the sultry, stylish imagery of North Africa in the fifties. . . . [Tangerine is] endearing and even impressive in the force of its determination to conjure a life more exciting than most. . . . Just the ticket.” -- New Yorker “Mangan’s debut pays homage to The Talented Mr. Ripley and to the work of Daphne du Maurier and Shirley Jackson. A vivid setting and a devious, deadly plot.” -- Kirkus “One book to add to your must-read list this spring.” -- Parade “Transportive. . . . Mangan’s portrayal of Tangier is electric. This sharp novel reads like Single White Female rewritten as a collaboration between Paul Bowles and Mary McCarthy.” -- Publishers Weekly “A dark tale of twisted love.” -- NPR “A slow-burning suspense novel about betrayal in the sun-drenched setting of 1950s Tangier. . . . It’s a page-turner.” -- AARP Magazine From the Back Cover The last person Alice Shipley expected to see since arriving in Tangier with her new husband was Lucy Mason.
