The Worst Thing

(2011)
A novel by

 
 
An exciting new stand-alone thriller from the Edgar Award-winning creator of Gideon Oliver, the Skeleton Detective.

When Bryan Bennett's boss asks him to fly to Iceland to teach his corporate level kidnapping and extortion seminar, he says no-after all, designing hostage negotiation programs is the perfect job as long as he keeps a safe distance from danger. After experiencing a kidnapping during his childhood, he never wants to risk it again, no matter how long the odds. But the CEO wants Bryan-or no one.

For decades he's treaded gingerly around the edges of his deepest terrors. Now, on this trip Bryan must face his fears full on. Will he realize that in this battle of will and nerve, he is his own greatest enemy? Or did he lose this fight years ago?
