Just before dawn in the hills near the Scottish border, a man murders a young woman. At the same time, a hot-air balloon crashes out of the sky. There’s just one survivor.

She’s seen the killer’s face – but he’s also seen hers. And he won’t rest until he’s eliminated the only witness to his crime.

Alone, scared, trusting no one, she’s running to where she feels safe – but it could be the most dangerous place of all . . .

Thirteen passengers in a hot air balloon glide over the Northumberland National Park. Unlucky, you might think. And you’d be right. Jessica Lane had booked the flight as a surprise for her sister, Isabel’s 40th birthday. All was going well until a man is spotted chasing a girl through the woods and the passengers witness a brutal murder. The man has seen them and as the pilot desperately released the flame in order to make the balloon rise, the man on the ground raised his rifle. He is determined there will be no witnesses left alive, most especially Jessica. One person isn’t killed when the balloon crashes but her battle to stay alive is only just beginning.
