A suspenseful, cat-and-mouse chase that unfolds deliciously. Henri trails Louise across Europe, to Paris from Spain and then on to Istanbul, each destination vibrating with possibility. Will he catch her and return the money? Will she escape him or surrender to her guilt? Louise unravels, Henri doesn't sleep, and ghosts follow them from bus to train to ferry. Told in alternating, dual timelines and perspectives, Mangan's latest is admittedly less atmospheric yet delivers the unease and doubt that are signature to her previous books.
