Baptism

by Max Kinnings

eBook

1 of 1 copy available

The London Times called Baptism "a tense blockbuster with worryingly credible characters."

In this modern-day thriller set in the subway tunnels beneath London, DCI Ed Mallory of the London police faces the greatest challenge of his brilliant, if somewhat unconventional, career as a hostage crisis negotiator. Blinded in a grenade blast during the course of only his second official negotiation, Mallory has over the ensuing years developed other faculties to compensate for the lack of sight, including an acute sense of hearing and penetrating insight into the twisted workings of the criminal mind. Driven and obsessive, Mallory now faces a high-stakes showdown with a psychopath who combines religious fanaticism and a chilling disregard for human life. Will Mallory's skills be enough to save London from a baptism by blood?

From the Hardcover edition.
