Annette  Mingels - Clay Pigeons


Two couples, two stories, one fatal encounter

Anne and David are on an island in the North Sea with their two children. One night, thirteen-year-old Yola is killed in an accident. The perpetrator left no trace. While her parents' marriage threatens to break under the weight of their grief, her sister blames herself and finds solace in playing her violin.

On the same island, Ester and Frank meet at a conference. They are both married, but initial scepticism soon turns into an affair, and when the time comes to go home they decide to remain on the island. They are torn between guilt and irresistible passion – and then the arguments start…

Clay Pigeons is a compelling examination of guilt that plumbs the depths of human relationships in times of pain and passion.

"Annette Mingels writes stylishly and with great psychological insight about our dreams, our search for meaning and life's little cruelties."
