August 2013 Book of the Month.
Another hugely enjoyable, explosive ‘race against time’ thriller from the author of Safe House. Hostage negotiation specialist Daniel Trent has a highly personal mission as he hunts for his missing, presumed kidnapped, fiancée and he is prepared to do pretty much anything to get her back.
The story in Dead Line moves at such a pace and has so many cliff-hanger moments that, as a reader, you sometimes need to remember to breathe!
And just as your plan is developing, so you're evolving, too. You're changing in ways you never would have thought possible before. But that's acceptable to you. You're prepared to do whatever it takes...Why? Because you're the specialist. And that's how you're going to succeed. What do you do if your fiancee goes missing, presumed taken? If you're Daniel Trent, a highly-trained specialist in hostage negotiation, the answer is simple: You find out who took her and you make them talk. But what if your chief suspect is kidnapped? How do you get him back quickly - and alive? Set in Marseille, Dead Line is a fast-paced thriller that pitches the reader into Daniel's world, as he tries desperately to secure the release of Jerome Moreau from a ruthless gang in order to interrogate him on the whereabouts of his fiancee. When things don't go according to plan however, Daniel must use all his skills and instincts to find the answers he's looking for, but will he be in time?
