Closure, n., enclosure, that which confines, as in: The suffocating feeling Carey has as a killer comes closer to home, tightening his metaphorical noose around her neck as he gains a stranglehold on her life; the macabre, interminable trap Davis finds himself in, with only desperate hopes of peace–but never happiness–in his future.
Simone and Kip Fairman, anonymous thriller authors, stumble into their character’s dark world of international intrigue while in London researching their next book, when they inadvertently purchase a rug containing instructions for a terrorist attack. Simone’s long-buried past reemerges as they are caught in the crossfire of terrorists and underworld thugs. The result is a crescendo of action, intrigue, mistrust and doubt that threatens their marriage, London’s peace–and their lives.
