A chance encounter between American scientist Jean and Ghanaian psychiatrist Attila proves beneficial for both. However, it's listeners who benefit from Robin Miles's superb performance. She makes every moment, every encounter, every new character completely credible. Jean is studying the habits of urban foxes, while Attila, an expert on trauma, is in London to search for the teenage son of a friend who disappeared, perhaps during an immigration sweep. The two grow closer through conversations, frequently offering intelligent views on what is normal, what is cruel, and what our responsibility is to one another and to the planet. Though the story itself is a bit preachy at times with perhaps one too many coincidences for comfort, Miles is simply wonderful delivering Forna's fourth novel.
