A suspenseful psychological thriller from the author of Booker-longlisted Child 44, now a film starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and Gary Oldman
If you refuse to believe me, I will no longer consider you my son...
Daniel believed that his parents were enjoying a peaceful retire-ment on a remote farm in Sweden, the country of his mothers birth. But with a single phone call, everything changes.
Your mother... shes not well, his father tells him. Shes been imag-ining things - terrible, terrible things. In fact, she has been commit-ted to a mental hospital.
Before Daniel can board a plane to Sweden, his mother calls: Every-thing that man has told you is a lie. Im not mad... I need the po-lice... Meet me at Heathrow.
Daniel is immediately caught between his parents - whom to be-lieve, whom to trust? He becomes his mothers unwilling judge and jury. Presented with a horrific crime, a conspiracy that implicates his own father, Daniel must examine the evidence and decide for himself: who is telling the truth? And he has secrets of his own that for too long he has kept hidden.
