Description

Roland Britten, accountant and amateur jockey, awakens one morning to find he can't move his hands-because he is tied up with netting, held captive where no light penetrates and no amount of yelling will get any attention. But why?

He knew that this was the latest in a series of events that had begun when he decided to ride in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, a race second only to the Grand National in the lives of British steeplechase riders. As an amateur jockey, Roland had pleased no one when he took Tapestry past the finish line first in what turned out to be the worst Gold Cup in history. As an accountant whose clientele included horse owners and jockeys alike, he also knew more about the private financial affairs of the racing world than any other person on the racecourse. Was winning the Gold Cup cause enough for his kidnapping? Or was it his knowledge of the books?

display_description It had been eight years since Paul Cambridge walked out of the jungle and away from his old life with the government. Now as a hospital chaplain in search of redemption, Paul risks being pulled back into that old life when a mysterious John Doe suddenly turns violent. Hearing the next morning that John had been found dead, Paul wonders if there is more to this patients catatonic rhymes of Prof, you have to stop them and Have to protect Katie. Searching for the truth, Paul follows the clue that Katie is somewhere in the hospital. Running into his old CIA handler, Chris ONeil, Paul learns that not only are they after the same woman but also that the groups Chris has been tracking might be the people behind the threat that the two patients uncovered. Revealing some of what he knows to Paul about the groups, Chris can only describe them as a live version of the board game Risk. Paul is now forced to make a decision. Does he risk sliding back into his old life to protect Katie, or does he walk away?
