  • Information


From the acclaimed author of The Sandpit, an exhilarating literary thriller about the hunt for a missing terrorist in South America. Out of a job but in search of one last scoop from South America, journalist John Dyer strikes gold when he chances upon Agustin Rejas, a former police colonel whose dogged pursuit - and eventual capture - of murderous guerrilla leader Ezequiel made him a national hero. Over many nights, Rejas recounts his story of the years-long manhunt.

So too emerges the tale of his own poor upbringing, his turbulent marriage and the passion he once felt for Yolanda, his daughter's ballet teacher - an all-consuming obsession that would ultimately lead him straight to the elusive Ezequiel... 'Astoundingly good... Demands you put your life on hold until it is finished' Guardian'A genuinely fine novel from a writer who possesses real heart and flair' Louis de Bernieres, Sunday Times
