If it had happened to you, you would have run away too.


Twenty-five years ago, Paul's friend Charlie Crabtree brutally killed their classmate - and then vanished without a trace.


Paul's never forgiven himself for his part in what happened. He's never gone back home.


Until his elderly mother has a fall. It's finally time to stop running.


It's not long before things start to go wrong. His mother claims there's someone in the house. Paul realises someone is following him. And, in a town many miles away, a copycat killer has struck.


Which makes him wonder - what really happened to Charlie the day of the murder?


And can anyone stop it happening again?

Finn, no.1 bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
