9780099754916: The Comfort of Strangers

A vacationing English couple find more than they bargained for, in this unsettling novel from the Booker Prize-winning author of Atonement.

Visiting an unnamed city, Mary and Colin attract the interest of Robert, a charismatic older man with a story to tell. But the more they get to know Robert—and his disabled wife, Caroline—the more apparent it becomes that there’s something not quite right about their new friends. A shocking work of violence and obsession, The Comfort of Strangers is Ian McEwan at his very best.
