The truth behind a one-night stand becomes just as terrifying as the consequences, “engrossing” (The Guardian).
Nina Todd is a woman of unextraordinary looks, with a dependable boyfriend and a menial job in Sheffield. It’s what she’s craved for years—a completely normal life. Then, while on a business trip in Blackpool, she’s approached by a younger man in the Hotel Astoria. She should have said no, but he was too handsome, and too persuasive to let go. The only trouble is . . . now he won’t let her go. What can he possibly want with her? He doesn’t even know her real name.
It wasn’t a random pick-up. Nina’s the one Rupert had been searching for. And he’s not giving up on her. Wherever she goes, Rupert will be there, too—gorgeous, irresistible, distracting, and determined to rip apart Nina’s newly ordered life. Now all she has to fear is her relationship and her job. She’ll never suspect there’s so much more. Nina doesn’t even know his real name. If she did, she’d run like hell.
What begins as a fatal attraction takes a terrifying detour as the paths of two apparent strangers converge, in this psychological thriller from “the suspense writers’ suspense writer” (Harper’s Bazaar).
