Killing Me Softly

Killing Me Softly

With a new introduction by Peter Robinson


***Special anniversay edition, with a new introduction by Peter Robinson***

You're in passionate love. And grave danger . . .

Alice Loudon couldn't resist abandoning her old, safe life for a wild affair. And in Adam Tallis, a rugged mountaineer with a murky past, Alice finds a man who can teach her things about herself that she never even suspected.

But sexual obsession has its dark side - and so does Adam.

Soon, both are threatening all that Alice has left. First her sanity. Then her life.

'The pacing is spot on, and the tension keeps creeping up and up right to the explosive end' Peter Robinson, bestselling author of the DCI Banks Series


  • A real frightener
