When a young man is abducted and his kidnappers threaten to broadcast his beheading live on the Internet, River sees an opportunity to redeem himself.
Is the victim who he first appears to be? And what’s the kidnappers’ connection with a disgraced journalist? As the clock ticks on the execution, River finds that everyone has his own agenda.
From the Hardcover edition.
"Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way. . . . In Herron's book, there is no hiding under the desk."—The New York Times Book Review
"Stylish and engaging."—The Washington Post
"[A] masterful thriller. . . . The intricate plot, coupled with Herron's breezy writing style, results in superior entertainment that makes most other novels of suspense appear dull and slow-witted by comparison."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Like a good movie . . . grabs the reader from the first page."—Booklist, starred review
