Summaries and Reviews
One of Britain's foremost thriller writers presents an intricate, fast-paced novel of heart-racing terror about a man whose obsessive lust for a woman drives her to the point of revenge--and into his arms. description: Product Description: "If thriller-reading were a sin, Stephen Gallagher would be responsible for my ultimate damnation. His work is fast-paced, well-written, infused with a sense of dark wonder, and altogether fresh."
--Dean R. Koontz
Though Tim Hagan appears wistful and sweet, beneath his polite veneer and boyishly handsome face lies a rage as deep as the ocean, and a conflict as sharp as a dagger. He needs a woman to save him from his gruesome past--and those who fail will simply become part of it.
Usually decisive and in command, thirty-something Ruth Lasseter finds herself on shaky ground. In order to mask an office affair, she must bring an escort to the company dance--someone who can play the part of paramour with convincing precision. Finally she makes her choice: Tim Hagan seems a suitable young man.
The darkness torn from that single night will consume Ruth with a need for vengeance and strip her life to the bone.
For Ruth escapes the hellish fate Hagan planned for her, only to become obsessed to know his tortured soul. So she looks for him, delving into his grisly history...traveling back to his birth near the primordial swamps of Louisiana...charting his descent, and hers, into personal hell...searching for anything that will help answer the many piercing questions lodged like thorns in her mind.
But as Ruth penetrates the very heart of madness, she finds herself irrevocably locked in a chilling dance to the death.
Bestselling author Elizabeth George hailed Stephen Gallagher's Nightmare, with Angel, calling it "a world-class, first-rate novel." Now, with Red, Red Robin, Gallagher once again delivers a taut thriller that is a masterpiece of suspense, right up to its shocking conclusion.
