The Seventh Man







When a young writer is kidnapped by a man who can't be seen, her only hope of escape rests on the one London cop who believes in ghosts. 
On a cold, white, before-Christmas day, an assassin completes a job only to be pursued by police. Dodging through crowded city streets, the assassin nabs a young woman for cover. Celia Wight, a reclusive American writer is shopping between engagements during a book tour. When a knife is pressed against her back, she loses her tenuous grasp on her carefully controlled existence. Assigned to the homicide case, Detective Alban Thain, of the Metropolitan Police, suspects an assassin he calls the Wraith. The problem is, only Thain believes the assassin exists. Disregarding the consequences, Thain, who is the only one who believes there is a connection between the murder and the kidnapping, will do whatever it takes to exploit the Wraith’s first and only mistake: the kidnapping of an innocent bystander—if she is innocent.

  3. I just finished "The Seventh Man." It was an absolutely riveting story. Couldn't put it down. The two main male characters, the cop and the assassin, two extreme examples of how a trauma can affect a person's future, proved to be two amazing windows through which to view one particular series of events. The story was so detailed, so well-planned, so real! I think you have a real gift for characterization, and also for scene-setting. There were so many great little details about the city. I will be eager to read anything you publish in the future! Also, I really want to go to London now :-)

You got the point with the two men, and it goes for the women too, if you think about it... Glad to have another London fan on board! Thanks again, and, I love your website. Almost anything French is like fine wine to me!
