Seat 7a

Author: Sebastian Fitzek Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/05/2021

Germany's king of the thriller takes to the skies with a terrifying and twisted new novel.Psychiatrist Mats Kruger knows that his irrational fear of flying is just that - irrational. He knows that flying is nineteen times safer than driving. He also knows that if something does happen on a plane, the worst place to be is seat 7a. That's why on his first plane journey in twenty years - to be with his only daughter as she gives birth - Mats has booked seat 7a, so no one else can sit there. If no one is sat there, surely nothing will go wrong. But shortly after take-off, Mats receives a worrying phone call. The caller has kidnapped his daughter and will murder her - and her unborn child - unless Mats convinces the pilot to crash the plane, killing everyone on board. As the plane nears its destination, Mats must make an impossible choice and face the fact he might be the arbiter of his own worst fear.

Author: Sebastian Fitzek Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/05/2021

Every year, on average 23 people disappear without a trace from cruise ships. No one has ever come back. Until now. Five years ago police psychologist Martin Schwartz lost his wife and son. They were holidaying on a cruise ship when they simply vanished, the case written off as a straightforward murder-suicide. They are not the only parent-and-child pair to have disappeared from this ship in recent years - and yet, the authorities seem unconcerned. But when a missing girl reappears - carrying Martin's son's beloved teddy bear - the police won't be able to avoid the truth that something sinister is lurking on board... 'Without question one of the crime world's most evocative storytellers' KARIN SLAUGHTER 'Fitzek's thrillers are breathtaking, full of wild twists' HARLAN COBEN
