Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
When a kindly stranger does Chloe a good deed, she decides she must repay him. But in tracing him, she meets a sympathetic woman named Nadine, who warns Chloe to stay away from the man at all costs. “Give him nothing, tell him nothing, don’t trust him,” she says. “Avoid him like the plague.”
Chloe knows the sensible thing to do: walk away. But her curiosity gets the best of her. What is the truth about the good Samaritan? How dangerous could he be? And can Chloe find the answers without putting herself and her daughter in harm’s way?
A twisting, razor-sharp suspense story that will keep you guessing to the very end, The Warning features an appearance from Simon Waterhouse, next seen in the full-length thriller Woman With a Secret - already hailed as “mesmerizing” (Lisa Gardner) and “unputdownable” (Liane Moriarty).
“Give me the car keys,” a man’s voice says firmly. “I’ll go collect the music from your car.”
I turn to face the stranger. He’s tall and thin, with floppy, straight, dark brown hair and brown eyes. He smiles. “Where have you parked, and where are you headed? I’ll get the music there in time or die trying.” He holds out his hand for my car keys.
I give them to him. A voice in my head whispers, “Most people wouldn’t do this,” but the whisper isn’t loud enough to stop me.
