The scene is set for a huge funeral in St Patrick’s Cathedral in New York. The rich and the famous from all over America and beyond have arrived to honour a former First Lady after her sudden, unexpected death.
Then follows an attack that was three years in the planning. Hostages are taken, the ex-President among them, ransoms demanded, a couple of hostages shot to show the kidnappers mean business.
It’s all brilliantly and chillingly co-ordinated, and Michael Bennett, the detective in charge of the case, knows it will be his biggest ever challenge.
A powerful and political thriller from the master of the genre.
