"NO ONE CAN CREATE A MORE ELOQUENTLY WRITTEN SUSPENSE NOVEL THAN PETER MAY." —NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS
A stunning standalone thriller from Peter May that alternates between the glamorous fashion world of Paris and the rugged beauty of the Isle of Harris.
When a killer strikes a pair of fabric entrepreneurs, is the motive money or something far more personal?
Friends since childhood, and lovers and business partners as adults, Niamh and Ruairidh are owners of a small company that weaves its own very special version of Harris Tweed—a niche brand in the world of fashion and haute couture.
But the threads of their relationship are beginning to fray. When Niamh accuses Ruairidh of having an affair with Irina, a Russian fashion designer they work with, Ruairidh storms off and gets into Irina's car. Moments later, Niamh watches in horror as the car explodes in a ball of flame.
With Niamh a prime suspect in the murder, she begins to suspect that things are not what they seem; and when there is an attempt on her life, she becomes convinced that what looked like a terrorist attack on her lover might be something more personal by far . . .
