'At the end you look up and see the world differently' Lesley Thomson. 'A terrific page-turner, rich with complex conflicts and a big, chillingly credible conspiracy' Chris Pavone, bestselling author of The Expats. 'Well-written and incredibly thrilling ... avoids the predictability of the genre' Skanska Dagbladet.
