Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When Rob Hale regains consciousness after crashing his motorcycle, he finds himself in the middle of a mystery. Lena, the young women who was with him on the cycle ride, has gone missing, leaving no signs of her existence, with authorities questioning the accuracy of Rob’s memory. But Rob finds an ally in London private investigator Rebecca Lewis, who’s been summoned by Rob’s mother after the apparent suicide of his sister, Laura, just weeks earlier. Together Rebecca and Rob uncover a dangerous labyrinth of cover-ups and corruption that proves to have links to Laura’s secret life and puts their lives at risk. Rob Hale is a plumber, an Everyman who begins to trust no one as he becomes an inadvertent but canny player in an operation with extremely high stakes. Ewan, author of the Good Thief series of lighthearted capers, adds depth in this much more serious stand-alone, set on the Isle of Man, his home turf. With its well-structured plot, crisp dialogue, and moral ambiguities, this is a compelling mystery that could win him new fans. --Michele Leber


“Beautifully plotted.” ―Publishers Weekly, Pick of the Week (starred review)

“Both an emotional story of a family dealing with a tragedy and an action-packed tale of a young man caught up in an elaborate kidnapping.” ―Sun Sentinel

“Ewan has...elevated the everyman thriller into a compelling, contemporary read...Safe House is an exciting, well crafted thriller, with flashes of real humour and insight.” ―SJ Bolton on Safe House

“Taut plotting adds substance to . . . considerable style.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred) on The Good Thief's Guide to Venice

“Engaging characterizations, suspenseful stories, and sharp writing, makes The Good Thief novels feel fresh and exciting.” ―Booklist
