All he wants in life is a property free of any annoying neighbours. But Seracino has a problem: he resides in Gibraltar, where almost everybody lives in flats and where detached properties come at a premium. For the last few years he has been attending property auctions in the hope of bagging himself one of the old colonial bungalows that intermittently come up for sale. But so far he keeps on getting outbid by lawyers and bankers, men for whom the annual £90,000 pounds that Seracino earns as a GP are no more than small change. Then one day Seracino’s luck changes and he manages to land himself an old colonial property in the Upper Rock area, the aptly named Solitude House. For the first couple of weeks the misanthropic doctor sits every evening on his newly refurbished veranda, looking out over the Bay of Gibraltar with a glass of his favourite alcoholic tipple. Then events take an unexpected and frightening turn....In this wickedly irreverent novel, Gibraltarian author M. G. Sanchez explores the idea of self-imposed solitude in a narrative tinged with supernatural and psychological elements, as well as the Gibraltarian themes that have traditionally underpinned his writing.
