Hunters in the Dark
'A modern Graham Greene' Sunday Times Robert Grieve u pushing thirty and eager to side-step a life of quiet desperation as a small-town teacher u decides to go missing. As he crosses the border from Thailand to Cambodia, he tests the threshold of a new future. And on that first night, a small windfall precipitates a chain of events involving a bag of jinxed' money, a suave American, a corrupt policeman and a rich doctor's daughter, in which Robert's life is changed forever. Alive with malice and grace, this is a taut tale reminiscent of the nightmares of Patricia Highsmith- a story of double identities, and innocence in the midst of evil, from a master of atmosphere and observation.
