'A story of hell told without judgement . . . a thriller which doesn't need to resort to breakneck pace, a crime novel without a detective, a misery memoir with much of the misery left to the reader's imagination. Unsettling and troubling' Thriller of the Month, Observer

Zoë Nielsen was just like any other ten-year-old walking to school, not knowing that a chance encounter with Thurman Hayes would lead to her abduction and imprisonment in a converted nuclear bunker, 4,000 miles away, beneath a remote ranch house in Arizona. Enslaved in her underground tomb, deprived of food and light and water, the girl Zoe once was steadily begins to disappear... But over time Thurman grows tired of the rapidly maturing Zoë, and when he decides it is time to get rid of her, Zoë must finally make her bid for freedom.

Forgetting Zoë is a moving, epic tale of courage, survival, horror and loss, that explores how a bond of affection and intimacy can develop between captive and captor.

So sick, so dark, so twisted but so good. . . Horrified as you'll be, you won't be able to put it down ' Easy Living

'Robinson is a writer with keen observation. The prose is hard, abrupt and sinewy. Moving and tender, this is a mature and accomplished work' Scotsman

'An uncompromising novel of alarming power . . . one would have to look to Crace's Being Dead to recall a British novel as convincing and as calmly aware of its own menace' Irish Times
