Debut's Moral Dilemma

Why would a woman risk everything to protect a wanted criminal? That is the problem Anya Cates poses in her fast-paced debut novel which, rather than put you to sleep, will keep you awake all night.

Mixing thoughtful - and often comical - asides and observations with a plot that demands to be read in one sitting, Cates has already mastered the art of 'can't put me down' in this modern emotional thriller.

Centred on 20-something Marie, the narrative begins as old friend and convicted criminal Daniel turns up unannounced at her Cambridge home.

What follows is an intense storyline which promises action and tension in equal measure right through to its conclusion.
