The Pursuit of Happiness and A Special Relationship were both Sunday Times bestsellers in paperback. That was the year my life fell apart, and that was the year I moved to Paris. When Harry Ricks arrives in Paris on a bleak January morning he is a broken man. He is running away from a failed marriage and a dark scandal that ruined his career as a film lecturer in a small American university. With no money and nowhere to live, Harry swiftly falls in with the city' s underclass, barely scraping a living while trying to finish the book he' d always dreamed of writing. A chance meeting with a mysterious woman, Margit Kadar, with whom Harry falls in love, is his only hope of a brighter future. However, Margit isn' t all she seems to be and Harry soon has to make a decision that will alter his life forever.
