Author(s): Ruth Rendell
As their worlds collide, an ex-con and his victim struggle to make sense of their violent past and forge a new future
When Victor Jenner emerges from prison he finds himself inexorably drawn to the man who put him there--the policeman he'd shot a bullet through and paralyzed for life. But it seems that David Fleetwood isn't the sort to hold a grudge, and neither is his ravishing girlfriend, Clare. But can an ex-con like Victor create a new life, or are these three newfound friends treading into the dangerous waters of the past?
Showcasing her unwavering mastery of the psychological thriller, Ruth Rendell's Crime Writers' Association Macallan Gold Dagger award-winning novel peers fearlessly into the hidden recesses of a criminal mind.
