This is one of the most brilliantly written crime thrillers. It’s absolutely outstanding and I am madly in love with this book. It had me completely hooked right from the beginning until the end. I was actually sorry to see it end. It’s so gripping that you can’t afford to put it down. It is actually like watching a thrilling Hollywood blockbuster. I am already raving about it like a crazy fan. Author Gerald Verner deserves a standing ovation for his efforts.
The story begins with Norris Jordan, a reporter with an English daily, knocking at the door of Peter Clayton, his former colleague. He is panting for breath and tells Peter about the dangerous life threatening situation,he is in.
