Fatal accidents are rarely caused by a single mistake but are often the result of a series of errors. A chain of poor decisions leaves Ian White – golf professional and happily married father of two teenage daughters – with a hellish choice. Should he report the death of Katerina Wysklow, a hitchhiker whom he accidentally kills while having sex with her? If his shame becomes public, it will destroy his family. If he conceals the truth, he must find a way to deal with the horror and his guilt.

In parallel to White’s unravelling, the police investigation of Katerina’s disappearance uncovers sex videos of Katerina with different men and unexplained cash deposits into her bank account. The mounting evidence points to her boyfriend’s father – a close friend of White’s – and Katerina’s last known contact on the day she vanished. Will the wrong man be charged? Will White be exposed? Will his conscience intervene? Or will the reckoning come from another direction entirely?

James Cairns McMahon lives in Scotland. During a varied career he has been a bricklayer’s labourer, milkman, tax inspector, accountant and businessman. Fitting writing around a hectic family life, he also enjoys bridge, football, padel and golf, attempting to improve the latter since he was eight.

    Well-written novel that keeps you engaged from one chapter to the next – now I’ve finished it I want to know what happens to the main characters I suspect the author cleverly leaves it open for further books in the same vein, and the final chapter!! well, I didn’t see that coming!
