About this product
- Description'Somebody!' I half-sob and then, more quietly, 'Please.' The words seem absorbed by the afteron heat, lost amongst the trees. In their aftermath, the silence descends again. I kw then that I'm t going anywhere...Sean is on the run. We don't kw why and we don't kw from whom, but we do kw he's abandoned his battered, blood-stained car in the middle of an isolated part of rural France at the height of a sweltering summer. Desperate to avoid the police, he takes to the parched fields and country lanes but his leg is caught in a vicious animal trap. Near unconscious from pain and loss of blood, he is freed and taken in by two women - daughters of the owner of a rundown local farm with its ramshackle barn, blighted vineyard and the brooding lake. And it's then that Sean's problems really start...This nail-shredder of a thriller - like the fiction of Nicci French or Gillian Flynn - holds you from the beginning, tightening its grip as the story unfurls and shocks you with its final twist.
