A powerful tale of a vengeance gone out of control from a bright new British thriller-writing talent.
In his acclaimed first novel, Turmfalke, John Wilson displayed a rare and refreshing ability to draw on old-fashioned storytelling skills to address contemporary issues in a compellingly readable and fast-moving thriller. Now, in Flatmate, he takes another massive step forward with a psychological thriller of unrelenting power.
Lyndsey Barratt, a fast-rising young actress, is brutally assaulted in a train carriage by a drug-crazed school cricket team. Left for dead, she survives but disappears from the hospital before Frank Illiffe of the British Transport Police can bring the culprits to court.
Seven years later, a journalist makes the disturbing connection that most of the cricket team have died grisly deaths. Someone is exacting a terrible revenge for their unpunished crimes – but is it Lyndsey, is it her sister, or someone acting on their behalf?
Drawing on the latest in criminal-profiling techniques, Frank Illiffe picks up the case again. He must find the killer – before the last surviving member suffers the same fate as his team mates.
