Description

If you're a security expert, what do you do if your fiancee suddenly goes missing, presumably kidnapped?

If you're Daniel Trent, a highly trained specialist in hostage negotiation, the answer is simple: You find out who took her and you make them talk. But what if your chief suspect is taken as well? How do you get him back quickly and alive so you can find out what really happened to your fiancee?

Set in Marseille, Chris Ewan's "Dead Line "is a fast-paced stand-alone thriller that pitches the reader into Daniel's world, as he tries desperately to secure the release of Jerome Moreau from a ruthless gang in order to interrogate him on the whereabouts of his fiancee. When things don't go according to plan, Daniel must use all his skills and instincts to find the answers he's looking for, but will he be in time?
