English sample & synopsis
The hotly-anticipated second novel by Finland’s bestselling, ’Debut Thriller of the Year Award’ 2017 winning author, Max Seeck.
Missing-presumed-dead Finnish diplomat, Jare Westerlund has fled from Croatia on a forged passport, leaving behind a decapitated body and his trail goes cold at Stockholm airport.
When Interpol officer Annika Lehto hears of his escape, she abandons her sick leave to go off in pursuit of Westerlund, with the aid of special forces specialist Daniel Kuisma. What follows is a dramatic chain of events, from northern Norway, to San Francisco, to The Hague, as the pair continue the chase. The further their investigations go, the clearer it becomes that the man they are after has not merely gone astray; his true nature is far worse than anyone had imagined
A gripping, international game of cat and mouse that began in The Angels of Hammurabi, which reads both as a standalone or sequel to the first installment.
The up-tempo novel follows the dramaturgical structure of a Hollywood movie. Short scenes and quick cuts retain the intensity. The formula works, and Seeck defies the second-novel slump.
