The year is 1977 and the wife of a diplomat arrives back in Indonesia after a summer away. Maggie has two young daughters she adores, a successful husband and an exotic home complete with staff, so why does she feel a sense of foreboding?

Within minutes of arriving back, Maggie’s husband threatens to execute the family dog. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, in a foreign country, Maggie faces a bleak future until a fatal accident forces her to take stock. Amid the social whirl of expat Jakarta, she also finds herself dangerously attracted to Doug, an inscrutable geologist from Aberdeen…

Gripping and insightful, The Puppet Master is a story about forbidden love, violent passions and the inexorable wheels of fate. Is Maggie doomed to fail, or does she have another shot at happiness?
