PALE HORSE is the story of Charles, who, disillusioned by the sudden death of his wife, propels himself into a world of urban alienation and self-destruction in an attempt to assuage the private demons that haunt him. Along the way he encounters the capricious Lucy and is forced to examine the nature of his own mortality, identity and beliefs.
"PALE HORSE is compelling and rivetingly well written…Charlie Strong has lost his wife; you gradually gather that he is a violent man…Soon there is more bloody violence, and Charlie, who is still in shock after his bereavement, gets increasingly out of control. You are gripped by the moody dialogue." —Sunday Times (London).
