Who is Hassan and what is behind his mysterious Valentine message to Amina? Who is the young beauty chased across a lorry park in the early hours? These are the questions local phone-in host Marc Niven struggles with as he is drawn deeper into the city's secret places. The question he already knows the answer to - why did Sam leave him so suddenly? - is the one that troubles him most.

A taut thriller ... A near-cinematic stylist, the author deftly sustains the tension right up until the final segment ... a sterling example of astute character studies melded with highly topical concerns.
