Chastity Riley and her friends are held hostage in a hotel bar by twelve armed men set on revenge, in a searing, breathtakingly original new thriller from the 'Queen of Krimi'

4 stars out of 5

"lives collide in a cunning climax that is shocking and deeply romantic"

When a dozen armed men invade the bar Chastity whiles away the time deciding which of the hostage-takers is the most attractive and flirts dangerously with Number One, their mysterious leader. She admits that she’s a “rather confusing kind of woman” before becoming confused herself as sepsis — caused by a cut from a piece of pineapple in a cocktail garnish — turns the explosive situation into a hallucinatory fairground ride. The nerve-racking narrative is seen from the viewpoints of Riley, Stepanovic — desperate to rescue her — and Number One, who left Hamburg 30 years ago for Colombia.
