The last thing Tom Jones had expected was to run into Portia on holiday. His wife Amy knows he had an affair some four years ago, but she had never met 'the other woman'. What a curious twist of fate that she is on the same flight as them - and staying at the same hotel. Philip Mann, also staying at the Hotel Parthenon, is in Greece to make sense of the suicide of Matilda. Everywhere he goes he sees her face, runs over in his mind the events leading up to her death and plays back the memories.
