And just as your plan is developing, so you’re evolving, too. You’re changing in ways you never would have thought possible before. But that’s acceptable to you. You’re prepared to do whatever it takes … Why? Because you’re the specialist. And that’s how you’re going to succeed.

What do you do if your fiancée goes missing, presumed taken? If you’re Daniel Trent, a highly trained specialist in hostage negotiation, the answer is simple: you find out who took her and you make them talk. But what if your chief suspect is kidnapped? How do you get him back quickly—and alive?

Set in Marseilles, Dead Line is a fast-paced thriller that pitches the reader into Daniel’s world as he tries desperately to secure the release of Jérôme Moreau from a ruthless gang in order to interrogate him on the whereabouts of his fiancée. When things don’t go according to plan, however, Daniel must use all his skills and instincts to find the answers he’s looking for—but will he be in time?

Quotes & Awards

  • “An intense, rapid-fire thriller with plenty of twists and turns from a rising star of the genre.”

    Simon Kernick, #1 Sunday Times bestselling author

  • “This is a compulsive against-the-clock thriller that cleverly turns the kidnap plot on its head. Great stuff!”

    Robert Goddard, Edgar Award–winning author

  • “A terrific novel, wonderfully sophisticated and assured and skillfully plotted. It’s refreshing to come across a thriller that has pace and tension but which doesn’t depend on the torture of women to provide drama. It’s one of the few books this year that I stayed up late at night to finish. Ewan has become a master storyteller and I look forward to reading his next book.”

    Ann Cleeves, Duncan Lawrie Dagger–winning author

  • “Spellbinding action at a furious pace. I read it in one sitting.”

    Caro Ramsay, New Blood Dagger–winning author

  • “Chris Ewan writes a great thriller and no mistake. From its explosive opening to a heart-pounding finale, Dead Line takes the reader on a relentless switchback ride where the pace never lets up and there are slick twists at every turn. Hugely enjoyable.”

    Lynn Shepherd, award–winning author of The Solitary House

  • “With a range of accents to rival any narrator’s and the ability to connect with the stories on the page, Simon Vance’s recordings are almost a guaranteed hit. Such is the case with Chris Ewan’s thriller. A good deal of this novel takes place within the thoughts of its protagonist, Daniel Trent. Vance’s communion with Trent makes those thoughts fully dimensional. Further, each character in the story has a distinctive sound that enhances his or her personality while concealing the plot twists and building the suspense…Vance’s narration makes this production a thoroughly enjoyable listen.”
