James Blackwell is sexy and handsome and a fighter pilot - every girl's dream partner. At least that is what Diana Arnoldthinks when her brother first introduces them. Before long they are in love and marry hastily just as war is declared.
Then fate delivers what is the first of its cruel twists: James, the day of their wedding, is shot down over Northern France and killed. Diana is left not only a widow but pregnant with their child.
Ten years later, contentedly remarried, Diana finds herself in the south of France, sitting one morning in a sunny village square. A taxi draws up and she hears the voice of a man speaking English - the unmistakable voice of someone who will set out to torment her and blackmail her and from whom there can be only one means of escape...
Richard Madeley left school at 16 to be a cub reporter on his local paper. By 19 he was a deputy editor, and that same year joined BBC local radio in the newsroom. He went on to work as a reporter/presenter for Border Television, Yorkshire Television (where he covered the Peter Sutcliffe serial murders) and Granada Television, meeting fellow reporter and wife-to-be Judy Finnigan. The two went on to launch ITV's This Morning programme, and after 13 years joined Channel Four for their eponymous teatime series, which ran for eight years. Richard now works as a freelance, covering for Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, Michael Ball on Radio 2, and live TalkRadio programmes. He has written three Sunday Times top ten bestsellers and is currently working on his fourth novel. He and his wife have run the hugely influential Richard&Judy Book Club in association with WHSmith since 2010.
