Description

It could be your average suicide. A man found dead in his car, engine running, parked at the end of a lonely track, a tube feeding deadly fumes from the exhaust through the window. Except for the seven-year-old boy still breathing in the boot... For Jonathan Kellaway, the past is somewhere he chooses not to go. Dead friends, lost lovers and a family dynasty hell-bent on self- destruction lie buried there. But if he is to uncover the truth, he must confront all the secrets which have consumed his life, and which may yet consume him...show more

A compelling read." * Choice Magazine *show more
