ADVENTURE / THRILLER. A terrifying read-in-one-gulp thriller with a killer premise: what do you do when the woman in bed beside you is a headless corpse. Straight off I knew it was going to be a bad day. The room was stifling hot; and when I did finally manage to drag open my eyes, all I could see was blood. I thought I'd stepped into the middle of a nightmare. But I was wrong. The nightmare was only just beginning. Ex-soldier Sean Tyler wakes up in an unfamiliar room next to the headless corpse of a girl he's met only once. With his memory of the previous twenty-four hours wiped clean, he's hardly out of bed before the phone rings. A voice tells him to press play on the room's DVD machine. The film shows him stabbing someone to death. Tyler is confident that the footage is fake, but will a jury see things the same way? The man on the phone tells him to go to an address in east London, and await instructions. Tyler knows he must do as he is told

"It's evening, you're back late from work - and the house is in darkness. You step inside, and the phone rings. You answer it - and your world turns upside down. Your fourteen-year-old daughter's been taken, and her kidnappers demand half a million pounds in cash. They give you forty-eight hours to raise the money, and warn you that if you call the police, she'll die. Trying desperately to remain calm, you realise that your husband - the man you married only two years previously - is also missing. But he can't be involved in your daughter's abduction. Or can he? As your nightmare begins, you can be certain of only two things: you will do anything to get your daughter back alive - and that time is running out"--Publisher's website

"Meanwhile Stegs is working to his own agenda, developing a plan he's been thinking about for a long time. Revenge, he decides, is a dish best served very, very cold."

What they cannot know is that they've also embarked on a journey that will lead one of them straight into the rifle sights of the enemy."--BOOK JACKET
