Synopsis

Killing Hour by Andrew Gross

A young man's suicide. An elderly woman's murder. A conspiracy stretching back decades. Dr. Jay Handler's life is perfect: a wife and children he loves; a successful career. But a call comes that changes everything. His troubled nephew, Evan, has killed himself and Jay's brother is in despair. Jay flies to California to help out, and is soon convinced Evan's death was no suicide. The police want him to leave the matter alone but he is determined to dig deeper. When his investigation takes him on a journey into his brother's shady past, Jay finds himself caught up in a world of dangerous secrets and ruthless killers!

Reviews

Praise for Andrew Gross: 'I think this book is fantastic - it has all the obvious virtues plus that elusive X-factor that really made me resent the times I had to put it down. It's Andrew Gross's best yet -- including the titles he wrote with James Paterson -- and therefore an automatic must read for lovers of fast, topical, can't-put-it-down thrillers
Lee Child

'Reckless is a sexy-as-hell thriller and Andrew Gross's best'

Cosmopolitan

Daily Mail

'All the hallmarks of the master -- quick-fire action, believable characters, and a none-too-taxing storyline. Perfect holiday fare'
News of the World
