"Ninety metres beneath his feet the wake from a dredger unzipped the murky satin of the Thames..."
A care assistant with a secret.
A gardener with an eye for more than greenfly. An estate agent and an ad man, both far away from home. And a pilot with nowhere to land.
Five lives converge in a moment of terror when a helicopter crashes on Clapham Common at 12:55 on a sunny afternoon. It's a day that will change them all forever – and, for some, will be their last.
Five To One is an enthralling new novel set in London, Loch Ness and the Galapagos Islands.
"A funny, often painfully honest and moving story about the absurdity of modern life and the concerns that propel us. Chalmers writes with a sensitivity and wit that recalls Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City"
- PENNY HANCOCK, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF TIDELINE
"A poignant study of genuine love in our big and fantastically diverse city"
