He goes to dinner at her house and wakes up at home with no memory of the past twelve hours. The same morning the girl is found shot dead in her bed. Harry begins to receive threatening e-mails.

Review:

`a superb novel. Intricate, truly gripping plot...elegant simplicity. Bravo! - as they say in Norway' -- Evening Standard

`An absolute blinder of a book' -- Daily Sport

`reads incredibly nimbly ... This tale of revenge - with the US bombing of Afghanistan pounding in the grim background - has twists galore, and enough humanity in it to keep it grounded. A master at work'
