“Moving and totally involving. I couldn't put it down.”
STEPHEN KING
“It is a dark and nasty tale of jealously and manipulation...the characters are intriguingly flawed, the narrative tension bow- twangingly tight and there's an absolute belter of a twist.”

Two years after the death of their
son, Charlie, Vince and his wife
Lydia are still struggling to come
to terms with the loss. Vince was
prescribed lithium for his stress-
induced bipolar disorder, diagnosed

life together. Somewhere between
making friends with a blackbird in
the back garden and hearing his
dead son's footsteps in the attic,
he finds himself lost and alone,
journeying through a world of chaos and darkness – completely unaware of the miracle that lies ahead...
Selected for WHSmith Travel Fresh Talent
“Wilven does a masterful job of keeping his readers as off-balance as his protagonist...an intense and satisfyingly off-beat examination of a man lost in a landscape of unresolved grief and his heroic fight to find his way back home.” MELISSA DECARLO
