Red, Red Robin

By Stephen Gallagher

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

"A classic of psychological suspense that sets this year's benchmark in written terror... Plot, pace and prose skewer you on page one and keep you pinned until the very last line"- Christopher Fowler

When Ruth Lasseter hires an escort to cover for a workplace affair, she lets a deeply disturbed young man into her life. Though she survives the consequence, she's left with the lingering suspicion that he hasn't simply disappeared. He's still out there, taking out his problems on other woman just like her.

There was a moment when Ruth had her chance to stop him for good. But she didn't take it.

Now she sees that closure-for both of them-lies on the other side of that line.
