‘…haunting tale … this is a beautifully crafted novel with skilful characterisation and a plot which twists and turns … this story of loss, deceit and family tragedy lingers long after you’ve finished the book’ –Daily Express.
Small-time private investigator Ray Lovell veers between paralysis and delirium in a hospital bed. But before the accident that landed him there, he had promised to find Rose Janko.
Rose was married to the charismatic son of a travelling gypsy family, Ivo Janko. When Ray starts to investigate her disappearance he’s surprised that her family are so hostile towards him. The Jankos have not had an easy past. They are a clan touched by tragedy – either they are cursed, or they are hiding a terrible secret.
Could it be that Rose’s discovery of that secret led to her disappearance all those years ago? Soon Ray wishes that he’d never asked the question.
In a novel that is totally different from Stef’s extraordinary debut, The Tenderness of Wolves, she shows herself once more to be a matchless storyteller.
We also have an amazing competition to win a signed copy of Stef’s incredible debut.
