It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, a final adventure before settling down.
After a perfect start, Daniel and Laura's travels end abruptly when they are thrown off a night train in the middle of nowhere. To find their way back to civilisation, they must hike along the tracks through a forest… a haunting journey that ends in unimaginable terror.
Back in London, Daniel and Laura vow never to talk about what they saw that night. But as they try to fit back into their old lives, it becomes clear that their nightmare is just beginning...
Follow You Home is the story of Laura and Daniel, who are on the trip of a lifetime, backpacking around Europe, before they settle down and have children. After they are thrown off a train in Romania one night, they have a horrific experience. Stunned and emotionally scarred, they make a pact that they will never mention it again - not even to each other. But the past doesn't always stay hidden, and a series of accidents and events suggests that someone is out to get them.
Mark Edwards has the knack of taking normal people and putting them into difficult situations to see how they would cope. After Romania, Daniel tries to get on with his life, but Laura struggles to do so, leading to a downward spiral in her physical and mental health. Their relationship breaks apart too - but can they rely on each other when their lives may be in danger?
Follow You Home keeps you guessing right until the end, when you finally discover what Laura and Daniel actually saw that night in Romania. This easy-to-read thriller is creepy and filled with suspense, various dodgy characters and twists and turns. A perfect choice for Mark Edwards fans (or anyone who enjoys creepy thrillers).
