When Rob Hale wakes up in a hospital after a motorcycle crash, his first thought is for the gorgeous blonde, Lena, who was on the back of his bike. The doctors and police, however, insist that he was alone at the scene. The shock of the accident must have made him imagine Lena, especially since his description of her resembles his late sister, Laura.
Convinced that Lena is as real as he is, Rob teams up with Rebecca Lewis, a London-based PI who has a mysterious connection to Laura—and learns that even a close-knit community like the Isle of Man can hide dangerous secrets that will not stay safe forever.
Chris Ewan's Safe House "is an exciting, well crafted thriller, with flashes of real humour and insight." (SJ Bolton).

Avec l’aide d’une mystérieuse amie de sa sœur, il décide de remonter le fil des événements. Rob va progressivement découvrir que son passé recèle bien des mystères et que tout le monde dissimule des secrets. Pire : parfois, il ne reste aucun endroit où se cacher...
Quand il n’y a plus personne à qui faire confiance. Plus aucun endroit où fuir...
