A Maxim Jakubowski selected title. Caroline Carver, as she was once known when she won the CWA Debut Dagger for 'Blood Junction', is undoubtedly the most macho of British thriller writers, with her strong background in travel writing and rally driving feeding her potent and colourful sense of place. Following two successful series featuring her doughty heroine India Kane and female ex-para Jay McCaulay, she now introduces a new character, everyman Dan Forrester, who has lost much of his memory following the tragic death of his son. When he is approached in a supermarket aisle by a woman who affirms all he knows of his own life is a lie, the scene is set for an intense thriller with twists at every turn, a basketful of conspiracies and the emergence of the spy within Forrester with explosive consequences.
