“It’s okay, Michael. It’s all going to be okay. But you have to listen to me. You’ve made a mistake.”
A small Greek island. Sun and sea. For Rob and Georgie, on a two-week break, it’s a chance to reconnect, spend some much-needed time together away from their busy, urban lives. For Michael – a shy, introverted man, stranded alone at the same hotel – the holiday is a revelation. And it takes on a very special meaning when Georgie casually befriends him. At the mercy of a powerful fantasy life, and unable to understand his conflicting emotions, Michael’s growing obsessions set in motion a train of events that will have shattering consequences. A taut psychological thriller, Travelling Companion is a study of how ordinary people commit appalling acts, and how horrific actions can grow from the most trivial of misunderstandings.
