Something You Are
The debut thriller from the author of the Sunday Times number one bestseller The Last. He's paid to kill. Not paid to think.
Nic Caruana never wanted to be a killer. But life took a few wrong turns, and now he works as a hitman for a violent arms dealer. His boss's teenage daughter has been kidnapped, and it's Nic's job to find her - using any weapon he needs to get to the truth.
Nic's hunt for the girl will take him to the darkest corners of London's criminal underworld. And it will draw him close to the girl's mother, Clare: a beautiful but dangerous woman who is prepared to do anything to get her child back.
Taut, spare, and brilliantly plotted, this gripping thriller asks of its characters: is evil something you do? Or something you are?
