Publisher's Summary

As their holiday unfolds, Colin and Maria are locked in to their own intimacy. They groom themselves meticulously, as though there waits someone who cares deeply about how they appear. Then they meet a man with a disturbing story to tell and become drawn into a fantasy of violence and obsession.

The most awful book I ha e ever read.

Why I kept going I don't know. Not a likeable person in it. Fortunately totally unbelievable and you would not have gone a million miles near these people let alone stay in their company. No understanding of domestic violence at all. With a broken spine apparently she still enjoyed it! Dreadful. Please don't waste your time. Very two dimensional.

Twisted short story

Perhaps a cautionary tale. Or indulgent nonsense. A stranger punches you and you socialise with them as if they were friends? Well written of course but the description is relentless. Method writing? Try something a bit more inspiring if you know whats good for you. But who does?
