From the Publisher:
From the award-winning author of Aquamarine comes this new mesmerizing psychological suspense story. Anshaw tests the waters of identity once again in a suspenseful drama recounting one woman's psychological journey when her lover unaccountably disappears.Christine Snow, a successful Chicago therapist, sets out to find her vanished lover, the sultry and elusive travel photographer Taylor Hayes. Forging a trail that leads into the heart of Morocco, Seven Moves tracks Christine's gradual recognition that no one can ever really know another's soul. Bearing Anshaw's trademark style -funny, hip, and laser-sharp -this is "a tightly told tale that resists the bookmark as well as any thriller" (Chicago Sun-Times). A Reader's Guide is now available.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"A pleasantly ambiguous psychological-suspense novel [that] shows us once again that a good story can be told as much by what it holds back as by what it offers....Clever, well-crafted, and deft: Anshaw draws her characters with an unsparing hand that is guided by a remarkably sympathetic eye." 07/15/1996

New York Times Book Review
"There are no surprises, but the undramatic inevitability feels right because Ms. Anshaw explores her characters rather than manipulates them, and the result has more resonant truth than cheap suspense. Ms. Anshaw is as good with characters as she is generous. Chris's world is densely and convincingly populated with friends, colleagues, family and clients." - Peter Cameron 11/10/1996

Boston Book Review
"'Seven Moves' is part mystery, part love story....With [its] warm but hip sensibility and cock-eyed humor, comparisons to the work of Anne Tyler or Stephen Macauley are inevitable, and apt. Anshaw has that kind of comforting authority, story-telling grace. But she brings to the table something seldom seen in popular fiction, and that's the extraordinary range of attributes she grants her female characters....Anshaw gives us a rich portrait of fully rounded people who happen to be women. It's scary to realize how fresh and startling this seems." - Kate Tuttle Nov./Dec. 1996

Lambda Book Report
"Anshaw knows how to delineate sense of place....'Seven Moves'...is a classic female quest novel, but the map's flown out the window midway. We think we like Chris, think we can identify with her pain, but she begins to wear on us. We start then to identify with Taylor, understand, sadly, why she might have left....'Seven Moves' has no beginning or end--only middle." - Victoria A. Brownworth October 1996

Washington Post Book World
"It is less a detective story than a study of loss and discovery, disappearance and recovery, and the dangers are all emotional, involving exchanges of words, not bullets. This is writing of a high order, where sexuality has less to do with the meshing of limbs than the discoveries of heart." - Paul Skenazy 11/17/1996
