Summary

It's 07:45 AM. A monk lies dead in Snowdonia, a knife protruding from his throat. The mission has begun.

By 08:56 AM, a London Underground train is stationary in a tunnel, with 400 passengers trapped inside.

At 09:15am, DCI Ed Mallory has just started his day. He's the Met's top hostage negotiator, despite having been blinded 13 years earlier.

Mallory is about to discover that, today, an underground train is not the only thing on the line.

Very good read

This was one of the best books I have listened too. The narration took you into the mind of the killer as well as the thoughts of the victims. I could not put it down, brilliant.

Worth a listen.

Bit of a slow start wondering where its going then it takes off and keeps you hooked right to the end. Worth persevering you won't regret it
