Publisher's Summary

The day that Jerry Hunt met Charlotte Frost was the day he decided to go straight. Jerry had been running a successful scam with his friend Pete, but something in Charlotte's smile made him take stock of his activities. He'd been to prison once and, Jerry decided, he wasn't going there again. In many ways, Charlotte, too, would like to pull away from her past.

Critic Reviews

"Another finely crafted psychological thriller....This is a work of impressive quality in the genteel English tradition." (Publishers Weekly)
"Taut, suspenseful, cunningly plotted, and filled with human drama and compelling characters, Yorke's latest proves that, even after 42 books, her writing is as fresh as ever." (Booklist)
"Yorke handles the minutiae of daily existence with meticulous care, and Celia Montague's impressive performance provides just the right flourish for this piece of literary scrimshaw." (AudioFile)
