The High Flyer

Novel by Susan Howatch, second in the 'St Benet's' series.

Carter Graham is a high-flying city lawyer, convinced that if she follows her 'life plan' she will achieve happiness. But her marriage is rocky. Her husband Kim has not told her much about his past, and she becomes more and more nervous when his ex-wife Sophie starts stalking her.

There's a lot of suspense and some shocking sections to this book. It's fast-paced and action-packed with a real battle of good vs evil, and some discussion of psychology and spirituality. Unusually for Susan Howatch the whole book is written from Carter's viewpoint. I enjoyed it much more reading it for the second time.
