What you need to know before your trail

When Maddy Wight is hired to ghostwrite the memoir of world-renowned cosmetic surgeon Angela Reynolds, she jumps at the chance to get her career back on track. But the deeper she digs, the more elusive the doctor becomes.

Confined to Angela’s glass-walled house in the Scottish Highlands, Maddy can’t shake the unsettling feeling of being watched. As a result, she is drawn ever closer to Angela’s enigmatic business partner Scott, whose mercurial moods change as quickly as the darkening moors outside.

Returning to London once the book is finished, Maddy is excited for their future together. But news of Scott’s death shatters the celebrations at the book’s launch party. Which is why, months later and still grieving, she is blindsided to see Scott entering a tube station just in front of her. And before she knows it, she is following him.

Travel Guide

Author inspiration for the fictional Varaig, Scottish Highlands

“I set about inventing my own little piece of the Highlands, creating a fictional loch, Varaig,  and locating it some way north west of Loch Lomond, roughly about where the village of Inverchorachan lies. I mixed together elements of the places I’d been: the heather-clad hills and sheer, rocky promontories of Skye, the shingled shores of Lochs Lomond and Carron, the  circling golden eagles of Colonsay.”
