Synopsis (via GR)
Give me one name. One person. And I will make them disappear . . .
When Sarah rescues a young girl in trouble, she expects nothing in return. But her act of bravery puts a powerful and dangerous man in her debt. He lives by his own brutal code, and all debts must be repaid – in the only way he knows how.
He offers Sarah a way to solve a desperate situation with her intolerable boss. A once-in-a-lifetime deal that will make all her problems disappear.
No consequences. No comeback. No chance of being found out.
All it takes is a 29 second phone call.
Because everyone has a name to give. Don’t they?
A Psychological Thriller that will have your heart pounding from beginning to end!
This is the first book that I have read by this author but he is now on my radar.
Sarah Haywood, PhD. has been working at Queen Anne University in the English Department for the past 2 years and is hoping that she is up next to obtain a permanent position. Financially she really needs this promotion since her husband has left her and their 2 children to find himself with another woman, again!
The Department head, Alan Hawthorne, an arrogant, misogynist, well respected in the community has hinted that she could have the position, however, there is a catch but she is not interested.
On her way home from work, after being passed over for the promotion, she witnesses an apparent child kidnapping and jumps into action. But this split-second decision will turn her life upside down. The child’s father is in her debt for saving his daughter, something that seems impossible, to have someone, anyone that has done her wrong to just vanish. She just has to name the person. But she knows she couldn’t make that decision? That is until things go from bad to worse. All it took was a 29 second phone call. And then it seems her world blows up when things go wrong, horribly wrong.
This book will have you on the edge of your seat!! As the seconds pass, the suspense will leave you breathless. A totally chilling and thrilling read!! An exceptional read!
