Item Details
Summary:

"A naked woman in red high-heeled shoes is poised on the edge of Clifton Suspension Bridge with her back pressed to the safety fence, weeping into a mobile phone. Clinical psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin is only feet away, desperately trying to talk her down. She whispers, 'You don't understand' - and jumps." "Later, Joe has a visitor - the woman's teenage daughter, a runaway from boarding school. She refuses to believe that her mother would have jumped off the bridge; not only would she never commit suicide, she is also afraid of heights." "Joe wants to believe her, but how could a woman be driven to such a desperate act? And who might drive her to it?"--BOOK JACKET.
