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. Should give Lee Child a run for his money in the high octane stakes. All Carver's previous exemplary thrillers are also available again in matching covers. Rush...
Dan Forrester, piecing his life back together after the tragic death of his son, is approached in a supermarket by a woman who tells him everything he remembers about his life - and his son - is a lie. Grace Reavey, stricken by grief, is accosted at her mother's funeral. The threat is simple: pay the staggering sum her mother allegedly owed, or lose everything. Lucy Davies has been forced from the Met by her own maverick behaviour. Desperate to prove herself in her new rural post, she's on the hunt for a killer - but this is no small town criminal. Plunged into a conspiracy that will test each of them to their limits, these three strangers are brought together in their hunt for the truth, whatever it costs. And as their respective investigations become further and further entwined, it becomes clear that at the centre of this tangled web is a threat more explosive than any of them could have imagined. Nothing short of brilliant ...Carver has created a wonderful story here, sort of Jason Bourne meets Silence of the Lambs. - Michael Jecks, author of Blood on the Sands.
