Neue Kurzmeinungen

Sehr gut konstruiert und getimter Thriller. Erinnert an hard-boiled Detektive. Die philosophische Komponente gibt extra Schwung.

Inhaltsangabe zu "The Natural Law"

Dr Paul Rook’s life is a mess: he drinks too much, his wife has left him for his best friend, and he spends his days teaching philosophy to students who aren’t interested at all. Thankfully, he has another life -- a side line career as a private investigator. So when he meets Mary King, whose small-time criminal husband has been shot dead in a faraway hotel room, he gladly takes the case. Almost immediately a mysterious character, known only as Gladiator, begins to send text messages to Rook, warning him off the trail. As the messages continue, the body count starts to mount. Is the killer trying to prove a point? Or just play a deadly game? As the case unfolds, Rook finds himself immersed in the murky world of crooked politicians, shady arms deals, and a web of criminals and cover- ups which extends further than he could ever have imagined… The Natural Law is a dazzling high-concept thriller, which twists and turns from the Houses of Parliament to the busy streets of Istanbul. 'A brilliantly original detective.' - Robert Foster, best-selling author of 'The Lunar Code'. Steve Attridge is an award-winning screen writer and novelist. His television dramas include Hawkins and The Boot Street Band and his other books include Philosophical Investigations, Waking Dreams, Behind Closed Doors, and Bottom of the List. Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent digital publisher.
