Book 2 in the Tina Boyd series (2006)
Publisher: Atria Books
Saturday afternoon: you’re with the kids in the garden when the phone rings.
It’s your best friend from school. Someone you haven’t seen for a few years. It should be a friendly call catching up on old times. But it’s not.
This call is different. Your friend is panting with fear, his breaths coming in tortured, ragged gasps. Someone is inflicting terrible pain on him.
He cries out and then he utters six words that will change your life forever… the first two lines of your address.
There is only one truth left in your world. They want you. And they want you dead — the new stand-alone thriller by crime-writing’s rising star.
John Meron, a happily married father of two, who’s never been in trouble, receives a phone call that will change his life forever. His friend, Jack Calley, a high-flying city lawyer, is screaming down the phone for help. As Meron listens, Calley is murdered. His last words, spoken to his killer, are the first two lines of Meron’s address.
Confused and terrified, Meron scoops up his children and hurries out of the house. Just in time. Within minutes a car pulls up outside and three men get out. It’s clear that they’re coming for him. He’s being hunted and he has no idea why. And with his wife missing, an unidentified corpse in her office, and the police after him for murder, his life’s about to get one hell of a lot worse.
