9780099559443: The Catch

How far do you go for a friendship? That's the question Daniel Wade is forced to ask when a simple favour has fatal consequences. For the sake of his old schoolmate, Robbie - and more importantly for Robbie's sister, Cate - Dan agrees to go along with a lie. But soon he's sucked into a conspiracy that threatens to consume them all.

How hard do you fight for a fortune? For Gordon and Patricia Blake, the dead man held the key to a glorious future. Now that future has been ripped from their grasp, and the Blakes want to know why. Then they want revenge.

How can you hope to survive? With a ruthless predator on their trail, Dan realises that evading justice is the least of their worries. All that matters now is staying alive.

Review:

"Tom Bale is one of the best British thriller writers around" ( Simon Kernick)

"This fast-paced British thriller will have you on the edge of your seat as it reaches its dramatic conclusion." ( The Sun)

"Races along to a gripping finish" ( Sunday Mirror)

"Tom Bale’s awareness of the old creative writing mantra “character is destiny” pays off addictively in The Catch...solid, purposeful and well written" ( Guardian)

"Bale manages to keep the momentum going by switching between the lives of the various characters while keeping his eye on the overall theme" ( Lloyd Paige)

"The original Tom Bale is working his way to the top of the Brit thriller writer pile" ( Sunday Sport)

"A good, well-executed, distinctly British thriller, that is certainly worth checking out, and having already purchased a copy of ‘Skin and Bones’ on the strength of this one, I’m glad to have discovered a new author" ( Raven Crime Reads)

"It’s a bloody and at times rather squalid tale as well as a gripping and unusual one. Bale specialises in villains who have believable motives for their actions but are none the less appalling for all that" ( Morning Star)

"On page one I was gripped by Bale’s faultless narrative, by the final page I was left in a state of awe at his storytelling skills... The prose is masterful... All in all I have to say that The Catch is an everyman novel with an acute difference, instead of offering forward a potential hero, you are offered characters trying to get away with murder. I loved its intense pace, top notch characterisation and moralistic questioning" ( Crime Squad)

"A clever tale of unintended consequences... Tom Bale manages to balance the seemingly ordinariness of his characters with their facility for lying and self-deception in such a way that you still can’t help but hope that they survive the nastiness that is heading their way like a runaway train" ( Shots)

"a tremendous read…well put together and an excellent example of the good writers craft. I can’t say much more because I wouldn’t want to spoil for you when you rush out to buy a copy 4/5" ( Army Rumour Service)

"This book captures you from the start… then twists and turns in every chapter, taking you on an intriguing roller coaster ride until the end… Great stuff!" ( Mojo Mums)

" There are some lovely characters, a swift plot, not too many red herrings and lots of action. I think it is well worth investing in." ( Love Reading)

Book Description:

Friendship is pushed to the limit when two young men flee from an accidental death. But the victim has powerful friends, and soon there is a predator on their trail. Unputdownable suspense from the author of Skin and Bones.
