How well do your loved ones truly know you, and how well do you know yourself? A lyrical, unsettling debut, Shelter By the Sea lifts the lid on a dark and deadly world that most of us will never glimpse, but which consumes the lives and identities of all within it who live to tell the tale, although to breathe a word about its mysteries may in itself be fatal. A secret assassin for the Israeli government, Danni sees little of his wife and children, and when they are together his mind is elsewhere, forever recalling his shadowy assignations beneath the radar of society's awareness, eliminating enemies alongside his lover and fellow assassin Sima without a thought to legality or mercy. But does Danni himself understand the truth of how he came to be living this double life, and are his missions all that they seem? A tale of international politics and personal tragedy, Shelter By the Sea brings the reader face-to-face with the hidden ghosts inside all of us.
