"A real race-through read. Bolton's writing is pacy, and features a brilliant twist I wish I'd written." (Clare Mackintosh, bestselling author of I See You (in Shortlist)). "For once, the description "impossible to put down" is fully merited, for this is an absolute page-turner". (Daily Mail). "With Dead Woman Walking, Sharon Bolton exceeds her own high standards of excellence.
It grips from the start...The plot merges skilfully, with many splendid twists along the way". (The Times). Just before dawn in the hills near the Scottish border, a man murders a young woman.
At the same time, a hot-air balloon crashes out of the sky.
There's just one survivor. She's seen the killer's face - but he's also seen hers. And he won't rest until he's eliminated the only witness to his crime.
Alone, scared, trusting no one, she's running to where she feels safe - but it could be the most dangerous place of all..."Bolton is a gripping storyteller with fine, haunted characters". (Peter James). "Crepuscular, uncanny mystery". (Guardian). "Bolton establishes a forbidding atmosphere ...A slippery, devious narrative in which things are not always what they seem". (Crime Scene).
