In his new bestseller, superb plotting and great characters keep pace in a race-against-time thriller by Transworld’s brightest crime writing star.
Did someone try to kill me or am I going mad?
When writer Rob Fallon gets drunk one night and ends up joining his friend’s girlfriend, Jenny, back at her apartment in London’s West End, he’s feeling guilty before anything’s even happened. But guilt quickly turns to shock when two men break into the apartment, abduct Jenny, and try to kill Rob. Somehow he manages to escape, but when he reports the abduction to the police no one believes him. Jenny’s father claims she’s on holiday abroad, her apartment appears untouched, and the doorman didn’t see or hear anything.
But Rob knows what he saw and he can’t let things lie — not with Jenny’s life in danger. When he starts asking questions, he finds himself the target of faceless killers who’ll stop at nothing to get him out of the way.
What are they so desperate to hide? And what does it have to do with an ordinary girl like Jenny? Either he finds out or he’s dead — it’s that simple. And time’s already running out.
