Staff Reviews

We've all known them - those troubled souls who can't seem to make a single sane decision. But to go so wrong, so fast over a couple of days, and call it a vacation! Never before have I so wanted to jump into a book and actually grab hold and restrain a character. An almost impossible to put down and horrifying nosedive into the Land of Death Wish.

— From Adam


Lise leaves her home in northern Europe for a holiday, but it is not rest and relaxation that she is looking for...

Driven to distraction by an office job, she leaves everything and flies south on holiday—in search of passionate adventure, the obsessional experience and sex. Infinity and eternity attend Lise's last terrible day in the unnamed southern city that is her final destination.
