Description
A vacationing English couple find more than they bargained for, in this unsettling novel from the Booker Prize-winning author of Atonement . Visiting an unnamed city, Mary and Colin attract the interest of Robert, a charismatic older man with a story to tell. But the more they get to know Robert--and his disabled wife, Caroline--the more apparent it becomes that there's something not quite right about their new friends. A shocking work of violence and obsession, The Comfort of Strangers is Ian McEwan at his very best.
