Ich wusste sofort, dass ich etwas in Händen hielt, was ich nicht sehen wollte. Dennoch zog ich die Karte aus dem Umschlag und starrte auf die Schrift. Alles Gute zum Jahrestag! Ich fürchtete, mich übergeben zu müssen, faltete dennoch die Karte auseinander. Auf der Innenseite stand mein Name. Leah Einzig mein Vorname. In kindlicher Schrift. Jeder Buchstabe hatte eine andere Größe. Ich warf die Karte zurück auf den Tisch, als könnte sie mir körperliche Schmerzen zufügen. Meine Wohnung schien noch kleiner zu werden, als versuchte sie, mich zu erdrücken ... Meine Vergangenheit holte mich ein.

Die Geschichte einer Ehe - und einer gefährlich engen Freundschaft. Martin Gilmour ist ein Einzelgänger. Aufgewachsen in trostlosen Verhältnissen, seinen Vater hat er nie kennengelernt. Seine Mutter hasst er bis zum heutigen Tag und meidet den Kontakt mit ihr, wo es nur geht. Es gibt nur einen Menschen, der ihm wirklich etwas bedeutet: Ben. »Mein bester Freund Ben«, sagt Martin. Wenn er es sich auch nicht eingesteht, so dreht sich in seinem Leben doch alles darum, Ben zu gefallen und ähnlich zu sein. Ben ist das genaue Gegenteil von Martin: attraktiv, beliebt, reich. Durch seinen Freund lernt er eine andere Welt kennen: die Welt der Oberschicht, der Privilegierten. Martin genießt es, dazuzugehören. Und so tut er alles für Ben – wirklich alles. Nach Jahren des Selbstbetrugs hat auch Lucy das begriffen. Ihr Ehemann Martin mag sie und braucht sie, aber Liebe? Liebe empfindet er nur für den Freund. Längst hat Martin, in scheinbarer Selbstlosigkeit, dafür gesorgt, dass dieser sich nie von ihm lösen kann. »Bens kleiner Schatten«, nennt ihn Bens Ehefrau Serena. Doch grenzenlose Hingabe kann lästig werden – so wie eine gemeinsame dunkle Vergangenheit.
