"I write thrillers, but at the heart there is always a love story. Not classic romances, but love stories in a much broader sense, exploring the relationships that occur in contemporary, more complex families. Trust is everything. It’s not something that can be demanded, but must be earned, and it is so fragile. Once it’s broken we enter dangerous territory." ZW
