A taut and highly charged story of passion and adultery. Set against the backdrop of the financial crisis, The Hummingbird and the Bear follows a powerful and illicit love from England to New York, from the known to the unknown.
“From the opening page I was drawn into this fast and furious story. The description of American life is wonderfully authentic, and the dangerous and illicit nature of Sam and Kay’s relationship helps to build the tension in a way that keeps you turning the pages.” — New Books Magazine
