Michael is a doctor for MSF. He works in the world's worst disasters, dropping everything to go and help out wherever his skills are needed. He is married to the beautiful Caitlin, an artist. Arriving home from Venezuela after an exhausting tour of duty, he finds her dying on the stairs from her studio, with a packed suitcase nearby. With all his training, he can't save her.
Once she is dead, he begins to learn about the life she has led in his absence - which it has never occurred to him to consider before. Having rescued her from a domineering father, he has apparently assumed that saving the princess from the dragon leads straight into 'happy ever after'. He's never thought about what happens next.
Mike blames himself for the death of his own family when he was a child, and uses his medical work as some sort of atonement. He's so busy looking at the next earthquake or flood that he fails to see the more immediate world of marriage and everyday life. Now he has to learn not only who his wife really is, but who his father was, too.
This is his own baptism of fire, through which he will emerge a changed man; and the past will never again be what he imagined it to be.
Occasionally the dialogue is a little too 'written for effect' rather than natural; but that's the only quibble in what is a very enjoyable book.

Livre bien construit techniquement, avec un excellent début, un médecin a l'autre bout du monde sauve des vies, c'est bien documenté, romanesque, on se prépare a passer un bon moment avec le début de cette histoire . Ensuite avec tres vite le retour en France du medecin, ca se gâte . Des personnages peu charismatiques, chacun dans sa petite descente aux enfers, on a l'impression qu'il pleut tout le temps tellement c'est triste. Le médecin cherche a savoir le pourquoi d'un drame, des élements lui manquent et il découvre des choses peu a peu, on l'accompagne dans cette quête en se forcant un peu, c'est déprimant . Manque l'humour entre autre . Dans ce genre fiction crépusculaire ,plus qu'une bonne plume, je veux être collé aux basques du ou des personnages qui descendent, ressentir quelque chose avec eux . Et la, presque rien . Reste un peu de suspens. quelques surprises. et un exercice de lecture de bon anglais .

I very much recommend this book, not the least for quality of the writing. The proof-reading also was excellent, which is always welcome. The characters are vivid and come to life. I did fairly early on guess who the villain might be and a few other developments, but I don't mind that since reading a whodunit does not have to be a contest between the author and myself and in this instance, it does not in the least detract from my enjoyment. I bought another of T.D. Griggs' books immediately.

I bought it as a cheap offer on kindle in France expecting a light read. It is in fact, a profound exploration of guilt and remorse set against haunting urban and rural backgrounds which transport the reader into other worlds. I have walked in the streets and markets of London and Bradford and reading the book on a wet November day in central France I am transported back to sounds and smells I knew and loved. A well-written novel.

This is a book that I thoroughly enjoyed, not only on account of the plot but also because of the quality of the writing. Rich vocabulary but not over-descriptive. Logical timeline, which seems to be less and less the case in this type of novel. Mild suspense. Maybe the end is a little rushed. On the whole, highly recommended.

I absolutely loved this book. Loved the way it is written with heartfelt descriptions of people and places and add to that a fine suspense tale that keeps you turning tbe pages and not guessing the end. A must.

Found this rather slow to get into. Extremely descriptive in many places which bogged the story down. Have to admit that I got the ending wrong tjough

I loved this book. It kept me guessing till the end. I enjoyed all the characters in it and the writing is very good. I'm looking forward to reading another book by T.D. Griggs!

I can second EAVG's recommendation, since she also recommended the writer to me personally (hi, EAVG!) Intelligently written, characters that engage the reader's interest and a good plot - I wasn't quite so fast on the uptake, having allowed a red herring to distract me for while there. Anyway, if I knew whodunnit, where would be the fun in the final reveal? Promptly purchased "Redemption Blues" to follow, and was not disappointed. I look forward to more from T.D.Griggs.
