A complex and compelling mystery that plays brilliantly with your emotions as you’re sucked so deeply into the characters’ lives – at one moment soothing you with comfort and familiarity before heart-racing suspense throws out a wide-ball. With a sense of place and characters so vividly drawn, this is a crackingly good page-turner about a man and his friends faced with insurmountable odds in a life-and-death battle with powerful enemies.
