DISCOVER YOUR NEXT FAVOURITE SPECTACULAR DESTINATION THRILLER WITH HEART
Nobel Prize-winning scientist Sarah Collier has started to show the same tell-tale signs of Alzheimer’s disease as her father: memory loss, even blackouts. So she is reluctant to accept the invitation to be the guest of honour at a prestigious biotech conference – until her husband Daniel, a neuroscientist, persuades her that the publicity storm will be worth it. The technology being unveiled at this conference could revolutionise medicine forever. More than that, it could save Sarah’s life.
In Geneva, the couple are feted as stars – at least, Sarah is. But behind the five-star luxury, investors are circling, controversial blogger Terri Landau is all over the story, and Sarah’s symptoms are getting worse. As events begin to spiral out of control, Sarah can’t be sure who to trust – including herself.
‘Immensely readable, pleasingly twisty and with a snowbound setting that glints like a knife.’
‘I loved it. It’s crime, but it’s also subtle, human, nuanced and clever . . . The ending had me rushing through the chapters, breath held, pulse pounding. Just stunning.’
‘A gripping, original, and highly addictive thriller. Filled with clever twists, I was hooked from the first page.’
‘Tense, pacy and full of pathos, this evocative, cinematic thriller has it all!
L. J. ROSS
‘Brimming with intrigue and as twisting and turning as any Alpine road. Richard Armitage has created a slick, pacy read with skill and conviction. Five stars.’
‘Atmospheric, icily tense.’
‘A gripping, taut, pacy as hell alpine thriller. More twists and turns than a toboggan on a black run. A high octane ride. Secrets lies and spies. What more could you ask for!‘
‘One of the best thrillers I’ve ever read. And I’ve read quite a few.’
A. J. FINN
