Waterstones Says

A pickpocket, a loudmouth and a bag with sinister, life-changing contents coalesce in this utterly absorbing page turner, written by a former criminal psychologist. 

The compulsive new thriller from the author of the Sunday Times Number One bestseller Hunting Evil.

Los Angeles, December 4th - exactly three weeks until Christmas day. Angela Wood, a master in the art of pickpocket, has just finished for the day - six hundred and eighty-seven dollars - not bad for less than fifteen minutes work.

As she celebrates her profitable day with a cocktail, one of the patrons in the lounge she's in catches her attention by being rude to an old man. Angela decides to teach him a lesson, and steals the man's expensive-looking leather bag.

Inside is no money ... no laptop computer ... nothing of any value ... at least not to Angela. Just a black, leather-bound book, surprisingly heavy. Curiosity takes over and in the comfort of her apartment, Angela quickly leafs through the pages.

That is when the worst nightmare of her life begins.

This is no ordinary book.
Read it at your own peril.
