Have you ever been in the wrong place at the wrong time? You are hiking in the Scottish highlands with three friends when you come across a girl.
She is half-naked, has been badly beaten, and she can’t speak English.
She is clearly running away from someone.
Do you stop to help her? Even if it means putting your friends’ lives – and your own - in terrible danger?
An utterly chilling story. I could feel my heart pounding as I read it. At night I had nightmares. Not for the faint hearted. An excellent read and highly recommended. This was my first Simon Kernick book and I have already bought his first novel 'The Business of Dying'. I am planning to read all his novels as I really like his fast paced way of writing which keeps your adrenaline levels high. Well done Simon, keep on writing.
