How well do you know your own life?
Nick Weston seems to have an enviable existence: his own advertising company, a comfortable house in a desirable area of San Francisco and, above all, a gorgeous wife whom he loves more than anything. But he knows that the company will fold if his latest pitch isn't successful. However, he's neglected to mention this to anyone.
Oblivious to everything but the need to succeed, Nick can't see what's happening to the rest of his life. Inexorably, the destructive momentum grows and he is left desperately pinning his hopes on one impossible scheme. As his dream of a secure future vanishes into a maelstrom of moral ambiguities, Nick and those closest to him wonder just how far he will go to save his marriage. Theft? Blackmail? Murder?
'Better Than This' is a thrilling, mesmerising and disturbing novel.
