From the Inside Flap

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 more than a year. But here was Lucy, trying to make things right and return to their old rhythms. Perhaps Alice should be glad for a friendly face. 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 to 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.

Review

“The lying, the cunning, and the duplicity is so very mannered that it’s chilling. Rich in dread, the foreboding positively drips from every page.”  -- Washington Post

“A dark tale of twisted love.” --
NPR

“Promises to be one of the best debuts of the year. . . . Echoes of Gillian Flynn and Patricia Highsmith in this tightly wound, exotic story.” --
Entertainment Weekly

“A slow-burning suspense novel about betrayal in the sun-drenched setting of 1950s Tangier. . . . It’s a page-turner.” --
AARP Magazine

“Unbelievably tense, incredibly smart. . . . Mangan full-speeds up to her shocking finale, twisting the plot with reveals you never see coming. . . . [Her] writing is so accomplished, so full of surprises and beauty, that you’d swear she was a seasoned pro.” --
San Francisco Chronicle

“If you liked The Talented Mr. Ripley, then you’re going to go wild for this taut thriller. . . . Absolutely delicious.” --
Nylon Magazine

“Eerie and fun.” --
Jennifer Egan, New York

“The thriller that everyone will be talking about. . . . One of those sinuous, Hitchcockian tales that disorients in the best way. . . . Hypnotic.” --
Esquire

“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] knows all the notes to hit to create lush, sinister atmosphere and to prolong suspense. . . . A satisfying, juicy thriller.” --
New York Times Book Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.
