A naked woman in red, high-heeled shoes is poised on the edge of Clifton Suspension Bridge with her back pressed to the safety fence, weeping into a mobile phone. Clinical psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin is only feet away, desperately trying to talk her down. She whispers "You don't understand" ¿ and jumps. Later, Joe has a visitor ¿ the woman's teenage daughter, a runaway from boarding school. She refuses to believe that her mother would have jumped off the bridge; not only would she not commit suicide, she is also afraid of heights. Joe wants to believe her, for how could a woman be driven to such a desperate act? And who might drive her to it? A terrifying psychological thriller, Shatter delves into the darkest recesses of the human mind.More

Oh My Goodness what a ride
Hmmm not for a long while... I love the buzz that the anticipation gives me and now that I know where the plot takes me.. well I will read another of his novels and go for another ride.
Great and gripping plot.
Somehow he fleshes the characters out.
Once again a great ride and terrific entertainment that takes me away from the academic literature which I need to read.
a dark plot-line but - hey! read very well.
