A chase against the clock…
Can two wrongs ever make a right?
A man is found by the side of a canal, comatose and brutally attacked.
It quickly becomes clear that someone is abducting men and subjecting them to horrific acts of torture. After three days they’re released, fighting for their lives and refusing to speak.
A councillor is accused of fraud.
Montague Mason is an upstanding member of the community. That is until he’s publicly accused of stealing the youth centre’s funds – an accusation that threatens to rip through the very heart of the community and expose his best-kept secret. But how far would he go to protect himself?
Two cases. One deadly answer.
As the two cases collide, D.I. Paolo Sterling finds he has more questions than answers. And, when torture escalates to murder, he suddenly finds himself in a race against time to find the killer and put an end to the depravity – once and for all.
D.I. Paolo Sterling is having several tasks at the same time: at the opening of the youth center, the plaque has been vandalized. At the same time, someone is abducting men and tortures them. Finding the culprit is hard to find, as there is apparently no link between them, and the victims refuse to collaborate…
And Paolo has to find the balance between his team members, as one of them is at the verge of bullying his own colleague.
This thriller had me wondering all the time what was going on… There isn’t just one thing happening, but several at the same time!
And it’s not only work that is stressing Paolo out! Also personally there are changes going through and it’s all becoming too much to cope!
During the whole story, I had my suspicions of who done it, but each time my mind was up, suddenly something surfaced and my suspicions were wrong!
At some point I just decided to stop guessing and just read it all to know the truth!
The main crime is obviously the abduction and torturing the men, but this is only the tip of the iceberg. The more Paolo and his team dig to discover the truth, more horrifying details surface.
And the moment I thought it was all over and now it would just be wrapping up the story, I find out that I was not ready for the last blow!
In my opinion, without giving away any spoilers, what happens there is even the worst of the whole story!
So if you’re looking for a story that makes you wonder the whole time who done what, read this book!
