The Killing Hour


Formats & editions


'They come to remind me of the night, to remind me of what I have done,' only Charlie doesn’t know what he has done.

'They come to remind me of the night, to remind me of what I have done,' only Charlie doesn’t know what he has done.

His shorts are covered in blood, there's a bump on his forehead and on the news it says the two young women he was with the night before were brutally murdered. Charlie knows Cyris is the murderer — except the police don’t believe Cyris exists. Nor does Jo, Charlie's ex-wife, to whom he goes for help. He desperately wants her to believe in him, and when she doesn’t, he knows he must force her. As Charlie goes on the run with Jo bound and gagged in the car boot, he tries to figure out whether Cyris is real or imagined, while the killing hour approaches yet again . . .

As gripping as his first powerful novel, this fantastic story keeps you guessing until the last page.
