Brother dead…best friend missing…house ransacked…stalked by a stranger…attacked in the street…And Sarah has no idea why. She never knew her brother was hiding a dark secret when he died. But now his actions have led the wolves to her door – and the only way out is to run. A tense, unnerving thriller that will set your heart racing.
When your life is in danger, who do you really want on your side? Someone good, someone decent, someone who only ever does the right thing?
Couldn’t the opposite be true? What if, when your world grows dark, you’re better off with someone who’s lived in the shadows? Someone who’s seen and done things you can’t even imagine. Someone who’d prepared to do whatever it takes.
Maybe, when your life threatens to collapse beneath you, the only person who can help is the last person on earth you should actually trust.
