'Equally compelling and unsettling, this razor-sharp thriller reminds us that, for life to be truly lived, we must know death. In loss we confront our true nature, though we might not recognise the person we discover. In his customary electric prose, Keevil cranks up the tension. You won't be able to look away.'—Katherine StansfieldRead an extract
All it takes to change your life is a single moment.
A random stabbing on a London bus leaves a young woman widowed and detached from her previous world.
Stripped of a future that should have been hers, she impulsively books a trip to Prague – the city where she and her husband got engaged. But in the midst of a bleak winter, isolated and numb, she can do little more than wander the cobbled streets – until she receives an intriguing proposition. There’s a job for someone just like her. All she needs to do is pick something up, and drive back. Just once. Only ever once.
Stylish and daring, this high-stakes thriller explores what happens when a curve ball skews life out of all recognition.
