Harry Ricks is a man who has lost everything.

A romantic mistake at the small American college where he used to teach has cost him his job and his marriage. And when the ensuing scandal threatens to completely destroy him, he flees to Paris.

He arrives in the French captial in the bleak midwinter, and ends up having to work as a night guard to make ends meet. Then Margit, a beautiful, mysterious stranger, walks into his life. But their passionate and intense relationship triggers a string of inexplicable events, and soon Harry finds himself in a nightmare from which there is no easy escape.

Review:

"Nail-bitingly compulsive... A thumping good read. Kennedy has done it again" ( The Times)

"An extraordinary tour de force" ( Mail on Sunday)

"I ended up missing my stop to finish it" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Classic Kennedy... extraordinarily compelling... Kennedy handles a morally complex, yet also surprisingly satisfying, ending with consummate skill, proving what a master he is" ( Daily Mirror)

"A grim, claustrophobic atmosphere is layered with sleazy transactions and the emotional flaws of the characters. It's all neatly captured in Kennedy's sharp, shoot-from-the-hip prose" ( Independent on Sunday)

Book Description:

The acclaimed bestselling novel - now a major film starring Ethan Hawke and Kristin Scott Thomas - from the author of Five Days, The Moment and The Pursuit of Happiness.
