Publisher's Synopsis

Rediscover the classic novel of love, violence and obsessions from Booker prize-winning Sunday Times bestselling author Ian McEwan.

Colin and Mary are a couple whose intimacy knows no bounds. Away on a holiday together in a nameless city, they get lost one evening in a labyrinth of streets and canals. They happen upon Robert, a stranger with a dark history, who takes them to a bar and ushers them down into a subterranean land of violence and obsession.

'Haunting and compelling' The Times

'No reader will begin The Comfort of Strangers and fail to finish it; a black magician is at work' New York Times
