When you live the dream you live the consequences ...
Cool blonde Carter Graham is a successful lawyer who believes she is well on the way to achieving everything she has ever wanted: a first-class Job, a beautiful flat and marriage to the man of her dreams, Kim Betz. But Carter forgot, when drawing up her dazzling plans, that some dreams turn out to be nightmares. Kim's ex-wife, Sophie, starts to stalk her; Kim lies not only about his past but also his present, and Carter finds herself drawn into an expanding web of deceit which eventually threatens not only her sanity but her life.
THE HIGH FLYER, both a murder mystery and a psychological thriller set in 1990s London, also examines metaphysical questions on the nature of evil in out chaotic modern society, and the healing power of love.
