Caught In The Light




A riveting bestseller from one of the UK's biggest thriller writers.

On assignment in Vienna, photographer Ian Jarrett falls passionately in love with the mysterious and beautiful Marian. Back in the UK, Ian resolves to leave his wife for her - only to find Marian has disappeared, and the photographs of their brief time together have been savagely destroyed. Searching desperately for her, Ian comes across a quiet Dorset churchyard. Here he meets a psychotherapist, who is looking for a missing client of hers: a woman who claims she is the reincarnation of Marian Esguard, who may have invented photography ten years before Fox Talbot.
But why is Marian Esguard unknown to history? And who and where is the woman Ian Jarrett has sacrificed everything for?

About the Author

Robert Goddard

Robert Goddard was born in Hampshire in 1954. He was educated at Price’s School Fareham, and Peterhouse, Cambridge where he read History. He unsuccessfully pursued various career options, finally spending ten years as a local government officer. Frustrated with a lot of contemporary fiction, he set out to write a novel that did what he wanted more novels to do: tell a tightly constructed and densely plotted story engrossingly and satisfyingly. The result was Past Caring and when it became a success he realised that he had, in fact, always been a writer.
