Sunday Times bestselling author Craig Robertson delivers an atmospheric and smartly written thriller about a man with a dark secret who tries to escape his past—but finds that no matter how far he runs he cannot hide from himself…
When John Callum arrives on the desolate Faroe Islands, determined to sever all ties with his previous life and make a new start, he is surprised by how quickly he is welcomed into the close-knit community. But despite these dramatic life changes, the debilitating nightmares that haunt him just won’t stop.
Then the sleepy peace is shattered by an almost unheard of crime on the Island: murder. A special team of detectives arrives from Denmark to help the local police, who are completely ill-equipped for a manhunt of this scale. But when tensions rise, and the community closes rank to protect its own, John will have to watch his back. But what’s even more unnerving, why can’t he shake the suspicion that the crime could have had something to do with him?
