"ONE OF THE BEST THRILLERS OF THE YEAR" -- JAMES PATTERSON, bestselling author.

Photojournalist John Wallace struggles to consciousness to find he has been bound and blindfolded by a masked man who is preparing to hang him in his own living room.

Forced onto a chair with a noose around his neck, Wallace briefly reconsiders his mostly lonely life before the chair is kicked out beneath him and his world fades to black.

Then he gets lucky and manages to escape his apartment, just ahead of his assailant. Bloody, barefoot, and with at least one broken rib, he has no choice but to run for his life.

When his would-be killer strikes again, Wallace realizes he will have to figure out who is hunting him and stop him on his own.

The pendulum of fate swung briefly in his favor, but it's only a matter of time before its momentum carries it to the other side . . .

Genre: Thriller

Praise for this book
