It was this which left Lilith in a state of isolation - indeed, like a wild animal in an absolute desert."

Alana Marks had always known she was different. From her gypsy childhood, to the way she now made her living in the movies, she'd always lived on the edge.

At the moment, she was about to set herself on fire and jump out of a burning barn."
