Book Title: CLOSE-UP
Year of Publication: 2009
Leon's partner died in his bath, and although the police report said she took her own life... she didn't.
When he meets Margot, overweight, lacking in confidence and recently separated, he sees an opportunity. Her life's a mess. Who better to help her put it back together than a man who's recovering from his own girlfriend's tragic demise?
Dragging her into a very intense, sexual relationship, which is one giant power game, Leon moves her into his flat and sets her up with a new career. How could she ever manage without him?
If his ideas go to plan, she'll never need to worry about that.
