When ROB SAUNDERS witnesses a young Japanese student commit suicide, he impulsively takes the folder she dropped as she threw herself under a tube train. He finds himself taking souvenirs from a series of tragic or threatening events, at the same time initiating an edgy affair with a work colleague. His behaviour becomes increasingly obsessive. The lines blur between witnessing, seeking out and initiating tragedy. Things spiral out of control when he discovers a dead body while he’s jogging in the woods. Stylistically bold, technically accomplished, this fast-paced page-turner explores the anxieties and survival strategies of a post-9/11 world.
