The Distance

Helen Giltrow

5 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Thriller / suspense

A blistering debut thriller that introduces the coolest heroine in contemporary suspense fiction.

They don't call her Karla anymore. She's Charlotte Alton: she doesn't trade in secrets, she doesn't erase dark pasts, and she doesn't break hit-men into prison.

Except that is exactly what she's been asked to do.

The job is impossible: get the assassin into an experimental new prison so that he can take out a target who isn't officially there.

It's a suicide mission, and quite probably a set-up.

So why can't she say no?
