If you could slip away unnoticed from your day-to-day life, would you?
If you could cover your tracks, if you could fly away, if you could start a new life: would you do it?
Tom is a burnt-out counsellor who readers first encountered in WINTER CLOSE. Myra is his client. Ruth, a busy GP and mother of three, is his neighbour. Rich, her husband, has left to make a new life with his lover. Len dreams of retirement but might be persuaded to take on one last job.
In WAYS OF ESCAPE they are all forced to confront questions of identity, desire, ambition and truth.
