This title is a Joan's Pick.
I loved, loved this book - a brilliant thriller, set largely in North Korea. There are three different narrative strands - all of which give insight into what life must be... like there, (and as confirmed by Google!) in a terrific story which had me hooked from the start. There's the teenage couple abducted from a beach, and the search by the young woman's twin sister to find her; there's Mrs Moon, who lives in a penal colony and trades on the black market to survive; and there's the high ranking government official whose personal history may jeopardise his status. These threads intertwine in a story which I couldn't put down, against a landscape which is as foreign to us as it is utterly fascinating.
Highly, highly recommended. Do yourself a favour and read it! Joan.

These products are due for release on the date shown. Many books have a specific release date that we must comply with, so these titles are not available to purchase unless the release date has been reached, and stock has been delivered on time.

When we can, we dispatch your pre order on the evening before the product is released. Depending on your delivery address, these orders can be delivered the very next day.

What happens if the goods are damaged when I open them up?

We can discuss replacement or refund options, and will have the courier driver collect the damaged item and return it to us. Please Contact Us
