A gripping novel of ordinary lives ripped apart by lust, deceit, adultery, conspiracy and betrayal

On a Saturday night in April, Ron Galloway’s friends have all arrived at his Ontario lakeside vacation lodge for a boys’ weekend without their wives. But as the night wears on and the host himself doesn’t arrive, the party turns sour. Then Ron Galloway’s suspicious wife, convinced he is having an affair and trying to track him down, arrives on the scene, followed by the police. It is clear something is very wrong.

In the hours and days that follow Ron Galloway’s disappearance, the secret of an ugly infidelity comes to light, tearing apart Galloway’s circle of friends and destroying two marriages. Did Ron Galloway commit suicide to escape his own unforgivable betrayals? What sinister set of circumstances brought him to his desperate end, and how will his survivors cope with the truth without tearing one another apart?

“Wonderfully ingenious.”
—The New Yorker
“Brilliant, superlative ... An Air That Kills is one of the most impressive additions to mystery literature – and the word literature is used in its fullest sense.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
“An utterly compulsive story of suspense ... When Margaret Millar decides to lead her readers up the garden path, even Agatha Christie has to walk behind. ”
—Time and Tide
“[Margaret Millar] can build up the sensation of fear so strongly that at the end it literally hits you like a battering ram – without any sort of gooey stuff or things that go bump in the night. A very clever story of psychology, of murder and conspiracy. ”
—BBC Radio, London
