How far would you go to keep a secret?
Nathan has never been able to forget the worst night of his life: a party that led to the sudden, shocking death of a young woman. Only he and Bob, an old acquaintance, know what really happened and they have resolved to keep it that way. But one rainy night, years later, Bob appears at Nathan’s door with terrifying news, and old wounds are suddenly reopened, threatening to tear Nathan’s whole world apart. Because Nathan has his own secrets now. Secrets that could destroy everything he has fought to build. And maybe Bob doesn’t realise just how far Nathan will go to protect them . . .
Neil Cross is the master of darkness behind the hit television show, ‘Luther’ (starring the remarkable Idris Elba) and writer of a number of thrilling, morally complex novels. He has an unnerving knack for putting his protagonist in agonizingly difficult positions, as well as asking the audience the question, ‘what would you do?’. If Alfred Hitchcock and Patricia Highsmith had a child, it would write like Neil.
