A tense, taut tale of mounting suspense and chilling drama. An intricately plotted psychological thriller that explores obsession, madness, betrayal and fear. She has an affair. She ends it. She thinks it's finished. She's fatally miscalculated... On the same evening Laura Hill first meets Sean Cazaly, her secretary Katie is attacked by 'happy slapping' thugs and Sonila arrives from Albania as part of a human trafficking scam targeting Laura's language school. Looking back, the three occurrences seem to merge seamlessly into one, a chain of events leading each in its own way inexorably to violence and, ultimately, death. But at the time, they are quite separate, quite distinct. If only with hindsight, she could now rewind the past like a reel of film, she would never have let it begin, that relationship that began so promisingly but would soon bring about the destruction of all around... What lies ahead is already here - with the shocking revelation of... The De Clerambault Code.
