Product DescriptionWhen ex-police officer John Cone is found lying wounded in a room full of dead bodies, he has a terrifying story to tell. Three days earlier he was hired by a mysterious client to snatch a suspected serial killer, Andrew Kent (aka the Penthouse Predator) from custody while he’s being transferred between prisons. But having seized Kent, things immediately go badly wrong. People start dying, Kent goes missing, and Cone begins to realize that the case against Kent may not be so cut and dried as he was led to believe. Someone else who shares that suspicion is newly promoted, DI Tina Boyd. She was one of the Murder Squad team who’d arrested and charged Kent several months earlier. A few hours before he was snatched, Kent had called Tina claiming he had highly important information about a murder, but refusing to divulge what it was on the phone. And now he’s gone, and Tina has to find him. And find him fast, because it’s clear some very high-powered people want to silence him. The question both Tina and John Cone are asking themselves as they race towards a terrifying confrontation, is why…About the AuthorSimon Kernick is one of Britain’s most exciting new thriller writers. He arrived on the scene with his highly acclaimed debut novel The Business of Dying, the story of a corrupt cop moonlighting as a hitman. However, Simon’s big breakthrough came with his novel Relentless which was selected by Richard and Judy for their Recommended Summer Reads promotion, and then rapidly went on to become the bestselling thriller of 2007. Simon’s research is what makes his thrillers so authentic. He talks both on and off the record to members of Special Branch, the Anti-Terrorist Branch and the Serious and Organised Crime Agency, so he gets to hear first hand what actually happens in the dark and murky underbelly of UK crime.Buy Online: http://astore.amazon.com/annduniriwri-20/detail/0593062876
