'It was the exact same shocking sound a body makes when it hits a car screen. I knew the sound, remembered it well. I started, heart pounding - but it was only the thud of the girl’s fist on the glass, her knuckles pressed white against it…’
A charismatic hitchhiker haunted by a shameful secret. A flawed man who is no stranger to life's burdens of loss and guilt. When they collide on a road trip to Scotland, Jamie is mesmerised by the volatile, alluring Katy, until the darkness that spills from the core of his new companion moves from her life to his own, and threatens to overturn it entirely.
Loss is a dark and compelling love story that uses the evocative backdrop of the Scottish Highlands to explore the redemptive power of relationships and the limits of humanity against a chilling backdrop of mystery and suspense.
