In April 1989, mere months after the tragic death of his sister in their seaside, Cornish home, nineteen year old student, Richard Glass, learns that his parents have been killed in a horrific road traffic accident on the outskirts of Cape Town.
Stricken with grief, Richard flies to South Africa to bury his parents, but a chance discovery thrusts him into the most sensational murder trial in the history of South Africa.
Twenty years later, with the dramas and tragedies apparently behind him, Richard is slipping into a comfortable middle age. But an unexplained noise in the night, and an apparently innocent snapshot of his young, Chinese wife, are about to plunge Richard’s life, once again, into chaos and darkness.
As the drama unfolds, the various threads begin to gel, forcing Richard to re-evaluate his life, from the cold agenda of his young wife, to the murder in Cape Town all those years ago. Tension mounts, and as past and present merge, nothing is as it seems.
A Season of Glass, is an expertly crafted and beautifully written psychological drama that will thrill all lovers of intelligent crime fiction.
