The Sandpit

To avoid Katya and her husband, but also out of habit, Dyer turned left at the gate and walked towards the sandpit. This square enclosure, three metres by three, was one of the few remnants of the school as Dyer remembered it.

The Sandpit

'A remarkable contemporary thriller... A triumph' WILLIAM BOYD A journalist becomes embroiled in a world of secrets and paranoia when a nuclear scientist goes missing. When John Dyer returns to Oxford from Brazil with his young son, Leandro, he expects a quiet life. His time living on the edge as a foreign correspondent is over. But these rainy streets turn out to be just as treacherous as those he used to walk in Rio. Leandro's schoolmates are the children of powerful people, and a chance conversation with another father, Iranian scientist Rustum Marvar, sets Dyer onto a truly dangerous path. Then Marvar disappears. Soon, sinister factions are circling, and become acutely interested in what Dyer knows about Marvar's world-changing discovery... 'An absorbing thriller with shades of John le Carré' Evening Standard 'Exciting... A page-turner' Daily Telegraph
