Upon winning the prestigious 2013 Crime Writers Association International Dagger Award, the judges praised Alex by saying, " An original and absorbing ability to leash incredulity in the name of the fictional contract between author and reader . . . A police procedural, a thriller against time, a race between hunted and hunter, and a whydunnit, written from multiple points of view that explore several apparently parallel stories which finally meet." Alex PrEvost-- kidnapped, savagely beaten, suspended from the ceiling of an abandoned warehouse in a tiny wooden cage-- is running out of time. Her abductor appears to want only to watch her die. Will hunger, thirst, or the rats get her first? Apart from a shaky eyewitness report of the abduction, Police Commandant Camille Verhoeven has nothing to go on: no suspect, no leads, and no family or friends anxious to find a missing loved one. The diminutive and brilliant detective knows from bitter experience the urgency of finding the missing woman as quickly as possible-- but first he must understand more about her. As he uncovers the details of the young woman' s singular history, Camille is forced to acknowledge that the person he seeks is no ordinary victim. She is beautiful, yes, but also extremely tough and resourceful. Before long, saving Alex' s life will be the least of Commandant Verhoeven' s considerable challenges.
