'Fantastic - Ewan is a genius at easing you in, and then keeping you there until the story is done with you' - Lee Child If your family was targeted in the middle of the night, what would you do?

You are asleep. A noise wakes you. You stir, unsure why, and turn to your wife. Then you hear it. Glass. Crunching underfoot. Your worst fears are about to be realized. Someone is inside your home. Your choices are limited. You can run. Or stay and fight. What would you do?

A Window Breaks is the nerve-shredding thriller from C. M. Ewan, the author of Safe House.

Perfect for fans of T. M. Logan's Lies and Mark Edwards's The Retreat.
