The Stranger is the new novel from accomplished author Sarah Singleton, andthe follow-up to her 2010 bestseller, The Island. Both evocative and gripping The Stranger is the story of three teens on their gap year in India - The Beach meets A Passage to India and it's a riveting thriller. Singleton deftly weaves both emotion and suspense into her multi-layered storyline. Both this and The Island should not be missed.
Charlotte is heading to a tiger sanctuary to do some voluntary work as part of her travels. But a fellow traveller working at the sanctuary starts to make her feel uncomfortable and she decides to ask Otto to visit her, pretending to be her boyfriend. When things start going wrong at the sanctuary, Charlotte fears a vendetta against her could be to blame. As tigers come under attack from poachers, the local authorities threaten to replace the sanctuary's management. Mark the journalist reappears, ostensibly covering the poaching crisis, but also delving into the background of the traveller who is making Charlotte's life a misery. But by now Otto and Charlotte's 'fake' relationship seems to be developing into something a little more serious...and how will Mark, and Otto's ex, Jen, feel about that?
