Why a Booktrail?

2000s: What would you do if you came to and realised there was a noose around your neck?

  • ISBN: 978-1472236159
  • Genre: Crime, Hitman/Gangster, Thriller

What you need to know before your trail

You wake. Confused. Disorientated. A noose is round your neck.

You are bound, standing on a chair. All you can focus on is the man in the mask tightening the rope. You are about to die.

John Wallace has no idea why he has been targeted. No idea who his attacker is. No idea how he will prevent the inevitable.

Then the pendulum of fate swings in his favour.  He has one chance to escape, find the truth and halt his destruction.

The momentum is in his favour for now.  But with a killer on his tail, everything can change with one swing of this deadly pendulum…

Booktrailer Review

Susan: @thebooktrailer

Oh dear goodness – I met the author at Harrogate – what a lovely man! Now I’ve read his book I’m a little scared of him.I have only just come out from behind the sofa after reading this one.

There’s a lot of depravity here – a man on the run for his live being chased all over London and a chase which takes the investigation all the way across the pond to New York. Think The Fugitive meets The Scarlet Pimpernel – you never know where the killer is or where the protagonist Wallace is going to run to next but wipe that brow of yours as it’s an adrenalin fuelled story.

I mean imagine finding yourself with a noose around your neck? Jeepers – and this is only the start. I was going to say Adam Hamdy is the type of writer who ropes you into the action but that is a little TOO true here. Just remember to breathe. I read this sitting on my sofa and now realise how macabre the little rope pulley on the blinds looks – a miniature pendulum if you will. That’s how this novel messes with your mind. Hamdy-itis I’m calling it.
