Awards: Shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2006
Once a renowned investigative journalist, Joe Donovan’s life fell apart when his six-year-old son disappeared without trace. Now a virtual recluse, Donovan is abruptly thrust back into the limelight when a teenage boy makes contact, in desperate need of his help.
On the run for his life, Jamal has in his possession something that holds the key to Donovan’s past, a past that can only be unlocked by forcing him to make a terrifying journey into the present.
As long-buried secrets emerge and the bodies pile up, Donovan finds himself caught up in a harrowing web of fear. In order to survive and uncover the disturbing truth at the heart of the dangerous world he’s found himself in, he puts together a team to help him, a team of outsiders that doesn’t care which side of the law it operates on.
And Donovan will surely need their help. For he and Jamal are being hunted by a ruthless killer. A killer with a 100% success rate. A killer who doesn’t know the meaning of the word mercy.
