Some secrets never die....
Priya and Alexandra have moved from the city to a picturesque countryside town. What Alex doesn't know is that, in moving, Priya is running from her past - from a fraught relationship with an old friend, Prakash, who pursued her for many years, both online and off. Time has passed, however, and Priya, confident that her ties to Prakash have been successfully severed, decides it’s once more safe to establish an online presence.
In no time, Prakash finds Priya and contacts her. Impulsively, inexplicably, Priya invites him to visit her and Alex in the country, without ever having come clean with Alex about their relationship - or its tumultuous end. Prakash’s reentry into Priya’s life reveals cracks in her and Alex’s relationship and brings into question Priya's true intentions.
Are we ever free from our pasts? Can we ever truly know the people we are closest to? Seductive and tension-filled, Polar Vortex is a story of secrets, deceptions, and revenge.
“Polar Vortex is an unsettling novel about how secrets always come back to get us - especially the secrets we’ve managed to keep from ourselves.” (The Globe and Mail)
“Polar Vortex makes no compromises in conveying the grip of the past on its heady and sensuous cast of characters, all of whom sing their song, as if they were the frozen swans of Lake Ontario that Priya and Alex encounter thawing out after the polar vortex has finally passed.” (Quill & Quire)
“Compellingly charts the complexity of human relationships, the illusions of memory, and the corrosive power of denial.” (Kirkus Reviews)
