An exciting and unputdownable thriller in the Hitchcock tradition. Two men, driving from opposite directions along a lonely road in France, find themselves forced to exchange cars when a tree, struck by lightning renders the road impassable. Involving a Rolls-Royce, a mysterious tower, a chic Frenchwoman and a rediscovered masterpiece of art history, a pursuit across the Brittany coastline and a hair-raising climax at the Mont Saint-Michel. "Adair is such a gifted European writer, so intelligent and so stimulating." - Theodore Zeldin.
