Friendship, freedom, booze and student loans: the glory days of University, the halcyon haze. For friends Liz, Cora, Mike and Stevie, students at Cardiff, that haze was shared, their circle tight, a surrogate family, bound together for three idyllic, hedonistic years in total trust. Or so it seemed. Mike and Cora marry after graduation, while Liz and Stevie look on, misty-eyed. The newlyweds move back across the border, Liz starts a career in journalism, and the group ´stays in touch´ with growing distance as the routines of work and Mike and Cora´s presumed domestic bliss colonise their daily lives.A few years on, the circle reunites, with Mike and Cora returning to live in Cardiff. The foursome paints the town, marking Stevie´s birthday in an orgy of nostalgia. As they drink and dance, from nowhere, a beautiful - and younger - flame-haired girl appears. This ´Jenny´ seems to recognise them, knows their names...but her identity´s a total mystery to them all. Or so Liz and Cora think. Then Mike and Jenny vanish from the bar; and he does not make it home that night. His innocent next-day explanation doesn´t quite ring true...and then Jenny reappears. As a corpse, found by the river, foul play presumed. Liz is assigned to cover the story, and finds herself caught up in an expanding web of lies, as Jenny´s death is traced back to that fateful night. Threats of blackmail and a nervous breakdown on Cora´s part follow.As mutual suspicion mounts, the ancient secrets of their college days begin to catch up with them all...and Liz begins to contemplate a drastic final solution. Unrequited love and murderous intentions meet, in a tangle of fear and confusion that threatens not just Mike and Cora´s marriage, but the four friends´ cherished past. A murder mystery, full of surprises, Telling Stories subverts and re-invents the chick lit genre in a darker shade of lipstick, marking the emergence of a major new voice in British fiction. 1.
