Review:

An exemplary domestic thriller, with an unstoppable plot and lots of expertly detonated surprises., Sunday Times Best Reads on the Beach

A tense, intelligent page-turner., The Times Best Summer Reads

A gripping and stylish thriller ... finely tuned suspense that erupts into visceral drama ... An award-winning poet, his honed prose is full of images of photographic sharpness that leap from the page. But this is also a novel driven by ideas, which, in keeping with its central theme, spins out across the world ... bold and satisfying., Daily Mail

Extraordinarily tense and powerful, and beautifully written, Mail on Sunday

Sheers' thriller is driven as much by subtle ideas as suspense ... psychologically astute ... Sheers writes carefully about careless people and the results present the reader with a reflective window on to self-deception ... a clever novel., Independent

It twists and turns and plays its cards close to its chest, showing its full hand only in the final pages, when we are forced to reassess everything that has gone before ... taut as a thriller, but resonant with motifs of intimacy and distance, guilt and redemption, and the nature of stories and storytelling., Sarah Crown, Guardian

A powerful, dark study of brutality, grief and guilt ... There are so many expertly detonated surprises ... Immensely pleasurable ... This is an exemplary thriller, clever, classy, slick - and always one step ahead of the reader., Sunday Times

A rare and luscious treat for the reader., The Times

The story is at its most gripping when untangling the "causal web" leading to tragic consequences, spanning out to New York and the Nevada deserts ... A profound meditation on memory and mourning., Observer

A powerful moral thriller ... Sheers skilfully drip-feeds the reader his characters' secrets and lies, including a remarkable sequence leading up to the book's central, shocking moment of revelation ... I Saw a Man's ending is similarly bravura, elegantly throwing into new light much of what has gone before., Literary Review

Book Description:

A gorgeously written contemporary thriller for Ian McEwan fans about responsibility and redemption

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. The event that changed all of their lives happened on a Saturday afternoon in June, just minutes after Michael Turner - thinking the Nelsons' house was empty - stepped through their back door. After the sudden loss of his wife, Michael Turner moves to London and quickly develops a close friendship with the Nelson family next door. Josh, Samantha and their two young daughters seem to represent everything Michael fears he may now never have: intimacy, children, stability and a family home. Despite this, the new friendship at first seems to offer the prospect of healing, but then a catastrophic event changes everything. Michael is left bearing a burden of grief and a secret he must keep, but the truth can only be kept at bay for so long. Moving from London and New York to the deserts of Nevada, I Saw a Man is a brilliant exploration of violence, guilt and attempted redemption, written with the pace and grip of a thriller. Owen Sheers takes the reader from close observation of the domestic sphere to some of the most important questions and dilemmas of the contemporary world. Living on a quiet street in Hampstead, he develops a close bond with the Nelson family next door: Josh, Samantha and their two young daughters. The friendship at first seems to offer the prospect of healing, but then a devastating event changes all their lives, and Michael finds himself bearing the burden of grief and a terrible secret. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780571317745
