Those Who Walk Away : A Virago Modern Classic Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

'The setting is Venice, the characterisation brilliant, the syle spare and superb' Daily MailThe honeymoon is over; the bride dead by her own hand.

Ray Garrett, the grieving husband, convinces the police in Rome of his innocence, but not his father-in-law, Ed Coleman, who shoots him at point-blank range and leaves him for dead.

Ray survives and follows Coleman to Venice, where the two fall into an eerie game of cat-and-mouse - Coleman obsessed with vengeance and Ray determined to save his reputation, and himself.

Each is at once the hunter and the hunted in a tense duel that, as each manages to walk away, draws them nearer to death.
