'A modern Graham Greene' Sunday Times Robert Grieve u pushing thirty and eager to side-step a life of quiet desperation as a small-town teacher u decides to go missing. As he crosses the border from Thailand to Cambodia, he tests the threshold of a new future. And on that first night, a small windfall precipitates a chain of events involving a bag of jinxed' money, a suave American, a corrupt policeman and a rich doctor's daughter, in which Robert's life is changed forever. Alive with malice and grace, this is a taut tale reminiscent of the nightmares of Patricia Highsmith- a story of double identities, and innocence in the midst of evil, from a master of atmosphere and observation.

Reviews

"Osborne's brilliance as a travel writer places his web of deceit, greed and need ... in a world conjured up with dazzling immediacy ... Sumptuous and sinister, languorous and tense, this is a novel that gives Osborne's remarkable talents haunting scope" -- Peter Kemp * Sunday Times * "If the purpose of a novel is to take you away from the everyday and show you something different, then Osborne is succeeding, and handsomely. Hunters in the Dark is a novel of immersion... shaped like a quiet dream. As such, it's an unqualified success, and I hope it enjoys a wide readership" -- Lee Child * New York Times * "Cambodia...comes splendidly to life in Osborne's prose... This is a tip-top thriller. Osborne knows how to keep the pages turning; he is a name to watch" -- Ian Thomson * Independent * "Edgy and gripping ... Written with unfailing precision and beauty, Hunters in the Dark stakes out territory different to the many writers to whom Osborne has been compared." -- Neel Mukherjee * Guardian * "Besides being a gripping thriller, it's a fine meditation on luck, fate and chance and a wonderful evocation of Cambodia, a country of ghosts, spirits and shadows" -- Sebastian Shakespeare * Daily Mail, Books of the Year *
