Product description

From the Back Cover

On holiday in the south of France, Dr Alex Davenport is caught up in a fatal accident at sea. His wife, Marie, suddenly finds herself in the bitterly ironic position of a woman who has lost the husband she had been planning to leave for another man – she had just been waiting for the right time to tell him. A day later, however, she is summoned to the hospital to be told hat his body has disappeared from the morgue. Returning in confusion to the hotel, she then discovers that his clothes, passport and plane ticket have also gone …

Moving from the Riviera to the coast of California, 'Cold Heaven' is a compulsive and hypnotic tale of the bizarre, the inexplicable, the supernatural and the eccentricities of everyday life.

“A master of narrative … deeply compelling … classic Moore.”

“Striking and strange, 'Cold Heaven' is told with the panicky sense of urgency at which Moore excels.”

“A brilliant novel.”

“'Cold Heaven' is extraordinary … such an absorbing story that we take the miraculous in our stride.”

'No Other Life, The Colour of Blood, The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne' and many other novels by Brian Moore are available in Flamingo.
