As producer Louise works on a commemorative program about world renowned photojournalist Bede Baxter, presumed dead in Lebanon, she falls in love with him. In the midst of her work Bax returns. He has difficulty returning her feelings because of his guilt about the death of his wife on an earlier trip to Lebanon. As the story unfolds, an attempted terrorist attack in an airport is told over and over in intermittent chapters, each time from a different point of view and in greater detail until the major characters become a part of it. The event is played out almost in slow-motion, or in photographic still after photographic still. A lovely short novel with spare prose, this is emotionally riveting and satisfying, though sometimes cliched.
