The acclaimed, worldwide bestselling second book in the Brigade Criminelle Trilogy, reissued in a stunning new package to tie in with Lemaitre's standalone thriller BLOOD WEDDING.

SHE'S RUNNING OUT OF TIME

Alex Prevost - kidnapped, beaten, suspended from the ceiling of an abandoned warehouse in a wooden cage - is in no position to bargain. Her abductor's only desire is to watch her die.

HE WANTS ONLY ONE THING

Apart from a shaky police report, Commandant Camille Verhoeven has nothing to go on: no suspect, no leads. If he is to find Alex, he will have to get inside her head.

ESCAPE IS JUST THE BEGINNING

Resourceful, tough, beautiful, always two steps ahead - Alex will keep Verhoeven guessing till the bitter end. And before long, saving her life will be the least of his worries.
