The brilliant new novel from Lawrence Osborne - "a modern Graham Greene" (Sunday Times) - author of The Forgiven and The Ballad of a Small Player
'A modern Graham Greene' Sunday TimesRobert Grieve - pushing thirty and eager to side-step a life of quiet desperation as a small-town teacher - decides to go missing.
'A modern Graham Greene' Sunday Times
Robert Grieve - pushing thirty and eager to side-step a life of quiet desperation as a small-town teacher - decides to go missing.

As he crosses the border from Thailand to Cambodia, he tests the threshold of a new future. And on that first night, a small windfall precipitates a chain of events involving a bag of 'jinxed' money, a suave American, a corrupt policeman and a rich doctor's daughter, in which Robert's life is changed forever.

Alive with malice and grace, this is a taut tale reminiscent of the nightmares of Patricia Highsmith: a story of double identities, and innocence in the midst of evil, from a master of atmosphere and observation.
