DISASTER WILL BRING THEIR LIVES TOGETHER
In 1994, Marko Novak's world is torn apart by the death of his best friend, a young soldier in the Bosnian war.
In 2004, human rights researcher Anya Teal is following a tenuous lead in the hunt for a man with blood on his hands. When Anya invites her first love Will to join her on holiday in a Thai beach resort, she hopes they might unpick the mistakes of their past. She also knows that Kao Lak may be home to the man she is looking for.
But a disaster as destructive as a war is approaching. In its wake, everything they knew will be overturned.
