Carl Granville is a would-be novelist who is beginning to think his writing career is going nowhere fast, when he is approached by the hottest editor in town and given a six figure sum to fictionalise a fifty-year-old diary. Sworn to secrecy and on a tight deadline, Carl is close to finishing when the editor is murdered ... and with hours Carl has been fingered as the killer.
He's only got one person to turn to, his ex-lover Amanda. With an unknown demon on his tail he manages to get to Washington, but the demon has extraordinary resources and Amanda too is drawn into the nightmare. They have only one option - to track down the author of the original diary and the place where the events related in it took placeand the true identity of Gideon. But someone knows where they are headed and are certain they'll never get there.
Told with spectacular pace, peopled with tough but vulnerable characters, Russell Andrews' first novel marks the debut of a bestselling name.

Review:

Thriller readers are a difficult group to seduce: they've read all the key titles (and their numerous progeny) and are quick to recognise over-familiar material. So when a new premise appears, it's a cause for celebration. Andrews' publishers must have been pleased to receive this manuscript, for this is a unique and interesting plot which is handled in prose possessing a frictionless energy. When a writer, Carl Granville, is hired by a mysterious source to synthesise an old diary, articles and letters into fiction, he is bemused by the quarter of a million dollars he will be paid for this task. Needless to say, that price tag has a reason: the pseudonymous Gideon's book on which he is working has more than bestseller potential--it articulates a profound evil and a long disguised cover-up by a clandestine and powerful figure. And when people near to Carl begin to die, his apartment is ransacked and his computer stolen, he finds himself both suspected by the authorities and in danger from nameless sources. There are echoes of Grisham here, but when Andrews throws off his influences, he shows that he can really let rip with a fresh and invigorating piece, garnished with some notably nasty villains. --Barry Forshaw

Review:

A fast-paced political thriller in the vein of The Pelican Brief (MICHAEL DOUGLAS)

A compelling page-turner (PHILLIP M MARGOLIN)

Pure reading entertainment as good as you'll ever find (CLIVE CUSSLER)
