9780006514572: Better Than This

Thrilling contemporary novel from the author of THE SNOW FALCON and STILL WATER. What could be better than this…

To all appearances, Nick has an eviable life: his own advertising company, comfortable house in a desirable area of San Francisco, car to die for and, above all, a gorgeous wife whom he loves more than anything. But he knows that the company could fold if his latest pitch isn’t successful. Trouble is, he’s neglected to mention this to his wife or best friend and business partner. When they find out, they start to see him in a different light and a fatal distrust creeps in.

Oblivious to everything but the need to succeed, Nick can’t see what’s happening to the rest of his life. Inexorably, the destructive momentum grows and Nick is left desperately pinning his hopes on one impossible scheme. How far will he go to save his marriage? Theft? Murder? Will it really lead to something better than this?

Review:

Acclaim for Stuart Harrison

THE SNOW FALCON:
‘Harrison is set to become a literary star’ Mirror
‘Harrison’s first novel is an accomplished [mix] of Kes and The Horse Whisperer’ Mail on Sunday
‘A heartfelt story by a distinctive new voice’ Paullina Simons

STILL WATER:
‘From its eerie opening…to the tension-charged denouement, we are smoothly sucked in to the tale…On one level, the book is an old-fashioned thriller in the best sense, its meticulous plot full of suspense and red herrings. But in a neat subversion of the mystery genre…this smart, absorbing novel also grapples subtly with the idea that things are rarely black and white…even with murder, things are not always what they seem.’ Daily Mail

From the Back Cover:

'How well do you know your own life?'

Nick Weston seems to have an enviable existence: his own advertising company, a comfortable house in a desirable area of San Francisco and, above all, a gorgeous wife whom he loves more than anything. But he knows that the company will fold if his latest pitch isn't successful. However, he's neglected to mention this to anyone.

Oblivious to everything but the need to succeed, Nick can't see what's happening to the rest of his life. Inexorably the destructive momentum grows and he is left desperately pinning his hopes on one impossible scheme. As his dream of a secure future vanishes into a maelstrom of moral ambiguities, Nick and those closest to him wonder just how far he will go to save his marriage. Theft? Blackmail? Murder?

Acclaim for 'Still Water'

'This smart, absorbing novel grapples subtly with the idea that in life things are rarely black and white… and that, even with murder, things are not always what they seem.'
DAILY MAIL
