THE LOST ASSUMPTION Self-made business and social identity, Renee Else. Intimately inhibited but highly attractive she battles past secrets and suffers indignant frustration. And Renee uses other women’s relationships to try to achieve some normality. Pederson Harner’s real life is brutally exposed because of a gigantic fraud. He’s mega rich but flees to Sydney from the dizzying heights of the London music industry. They’d never met face-to-face but Harner tries to make amends to Renee for the lie they’d both been living for almost 16 years; an assumption that has now betrayed and humiliated her. Renee turns on Harner viciously. Two unique and powerful personalities collide.. two highly aware minds do battle. Sophistication meets excitement in a story that is a saga. It’s fast paced.. revealing bizarre desires, unhinging sexual frustration.. and prising erratic emotions from its characters.
