James Patterson has hailed Adam Hamdy's PENDULUM as 'one of the best thrillers of the year' saying he read it in 'one gloriously suspenseful weekend'. A photo-journalist is targeted for death in this high-concept, twisting, dangerous journey through a digital underworld. If you love Simon Kernick and Terry Hayes' I AM PILGRIM, read this.
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...
You have one chance. Run.

I loved Pendulum. I loved the characters, the way the story plays out, the interwoven threads . . . so subtle, yet so brilliant and unexpected
Pendulum is well worth the hype and attention
I read Pendulum in one gloriously suspenseful weekend. Definitely one of the best thrillers of the year - James Patterson
James Patterson calls it "one of the best thrillers of the year", and it is plain to see why...told at a great pace, has a strong central character and a snaking plot - Daily Mail
Fast with twists that keep you on the edge and in the dark. Scenario using plausible state-of-art technology and networks that sets up the state of play, hand in hand with the traditional groundwork approach, makes for a adrenaline packed thought provoking read.
