‘I opened this book with high expectations. They have been admirably fulfilled.  Here we have a stand alone thriller about two lonely people who pursue a relationship of monthly weekends together in remote spots.  Suddenly one of these two fails to get to the rendezvous-vous and the other realises how very limited her knowledge of her  companion is . . . Gradually the reader pieces together some of the facts as an atmosphere of rising tension envelops everything. The intelligent way Jay, Lisa and others plan their actions is enjoyable and the suspense of the tale is palpable.’

    What a great interview! I always enjoy learning how other writers get their inspiration, and how they put their ideas together. It was great to learn how you went about it, Christine!

      Thanks, Margot. I am sure you will agree as a writer that you never know what little item of information is going to spark your imagination and come in handy one day.
