Karl Dresner should be on a plane to the Maldives with a girlfriend who wants more than he can give. Instead, he makes a decision he will live to regret and finds himself caught up in a bomb blast in London. Cut down in a blizzard of glass shards, Karl is left alive, but only just. The doctors repair the scars on the outside but the Karl who returns to Munich is a lonely, withdrawn man who punctuates his days with empty sex.
Barely connected with the world of the living, he remains an empty shell until he meets an impulsive and life-affirming Italian woman. Theirs is an awkward, angry beginning but she can see a future for Karl that he’s lost sight of himself. Scars Beneath the Skin is a dark modern love story set against the anxieties of the post-9/11 world.
Scars Beneath the Skin costs £8.99 and was published in May 2009.
