A serial killer stalks prostitutes with profound and unexpected consequences in this riveting novel from the Booker Prize-wining author of Ghost Road

Brenda, with three children, can't afford to give up while Audrey, now in her forties, desperately goes on 'working the cars'.

And then, when another woman is savagely murdered, Jean, her lover, takes desperate measures...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Barker's creative vision is as in touch with the psychologically primordial as Melville's * HARPER'S *
Swift, spare, and utterly absorbing ... [Barker] makes us see her characters from within... and thereby reveals the full individuality and humanity of women who have got short shrift both in literature and in life * NY TIMES BOOK REVIEW *
Barker's talent for gently sifting through the hidden depths of the human psyche is awesome * NOVA *

“A superb book”

A fabulous book, fully engaging. The description of working in the chicken factory was spare and chilling, unforgettable. The prose is sparse and direct, and this is a very warm, human, book. I do not think the... More
