Thrills abound in Marcelle Perks’s breathtaking debut
In Night Driver a woman who is terrified of driving is pitted against a truck-driving serial killer…
Heavily pregnant Frannie is facing a crisis. An English woman living in Germany, her marriage is failing and she feels like a fish out of water in a foreign country. To build a sense of independence, she learns to drive but is a very nervous driver . To ease her pregnancy induced insomnia, she takes to the roads in the early hours, just to gain experience on the eerily empty streets.
But when she encounters a Polish motorcyclist looking for his missing sister, she becomes sucked into a terrifying world of shady nightclubs, autobahn prostitutes and organ trafficking. When she crosses serial-killing truck driver Stiglegger, there’s no turning back.
A most unlikely heroine, this nervous Night Driver must stay one step ahead of her pursuer on the darkest of roads in order to survive.
