Product description

Used very good condition, Signed by author on half title page. Dj intact, light shelf wear, bumping to corners of boards. 'Combines an extraordinarily inventive plot with characters haunted by long ago events' SUNDAY TIMES CRIME BOOK OF THE MONTH

In summer 1989 fifteen-year-old Clotilde is on holiday with her parents in Corsica. On a twisty mountain road, their car comes off at a curve and plunges into a ravine. Only Clotilde survives. Twenty-seven years later, she returns to Corsica with her husband and teenage daughter. Clotilde wants the trip to do two things - to help exorcise her past, and to build a bridge between her and her daughter. But in the very place where she spent that summer all those years ago, she receives a letter. From her mother. As if she were still alive. As fragments of memory come back, Clotilde begins to question the past. And yet it all seems impossible - she saw the corpses of her mother, her father, her brother. She has lived with their ghosts. But who sent this letter - and why?
