From the press release
“The dark reverse of a personal growth novel, a hoot of a crime thriller.” – The Independent
“A breathtaking thriller set in the dark shadow of the everyday …a razor sharp parable of modern life” – Jake Arnott
Christopher Fowler, the writer behind the Bryant & May series, is returning to Solaris with a new horror crime thriller that slices through the facile world of modern consumerist urban life.
June Cryer is a shopaholic suburban housewife trapped in a lousy marriage. After losing her home, husband and credit rating, she flat-sits a friend’s spectacular London high-rise apartment and prepares to indulge herself amidst London’s wealth.
But when a terrified girl breaks into the flat, June makes the mistake of asking the neighbours for help and she finds herself embroiled in an escalating nightmare, trying to prove that a murderer exists. For the next 24 hours she must survive on the streets without friends or money and solve an impossible crime.
Fowler has produced a dark thriller that skewers the lives of the urban rich, cutting open dark fears and bringing forth a novel that reveals the flimsy insecurities of modern life.
