Summary
Years ago, Tom had an affair with Catherine who became pregnant and had an abortion - or so he thinks. Now he is married to Vie and their relationship is on the rocks because she cannot conceive and Tom is desperate to be a father. Enter Smokey, a nineteen-year-old runaway whose girlfriend is none other than Catherine's and Tom's daughter Belinda. Tom's wish to be a father is fulfilled, but remember the saying: be careful what you wish for - you might just get it. Tom's past catches up with him in a terrifying sequence of events involving deception, plots and murder. Then a final, tragic twist saturates his life with the bitterest irony. Fast moving, bloody and savage, this modern thriller from the author of Killing Time will keep audiences on the edges of their seats as the mystery deepens and the body-count multiplies...
