What if, out of the blue, you witnessed a major crime? What if your testimony, and yours alone, could put one of the most dangerous criminals in the country behind bars? Would you do it? And if you do, who’s there to protect you? Gimme Shelter pits a young, female, Witness Protection Officer against one of the deadliest psychopaths imaginable as she fights to keep her latest witness safe; but is that witness all she claims to be? And, in a world in which nothing can be taken on trust, is the Protection Officer all she seems? Gimme Shelter is a breathlessly pitched thriller, populated by vivid, deeply flawed characters in which villains become heroes and moral boundaries blur. Technically terrific, and with the authorial voice in full command, this is a masterly text in which the various strands pull together with hypnotic intensity. Sophisticated, hard-hitting and genuinely scary.
