It is the summer of 1960. J.F.K. is making his historic run for the White House. Mohammed Ali is winning gold at the Rome Olympics and Alfred Hitchcock is terrifying movie audiences with Psycho.
For teenager Bobby Forbes it is the summer of forbidden love and lost innocence. At the sleepy lakeside resort of Pheasant Point, Bobby is hired by the seductive, thirty-eight-year-old artist, Phoebe Quine to pose for a painting. In the sweltering heat of those high summer months the troubled young boy and the damaged older woman begin a risky, obsessive love affair that must be kept secret at all costs.
Events begin to spin out of control on the long weekend at the end of the season. The fear and paranoia bubbling in the pressure cooker of their taboo affair finally explode in an orgy of violence and death, leaving the resort of Pheasant Point in flames.
MB Walsh has created a tense, atmospheric thriller. He brings to life characters you will never forget and takes them on a sex-fuelled express straight into a nightmare...
