In Alex, this gripping detective novel set in Paris, Alex Prévost is kidnapped, savagely beaten, and suspended from the ceiling of an abandoned building. Her abductor appears to desire only one thing: to watch her die. But just who is Alex? In a story of twists and slowly revealed details, you will not be sure who you are rooting for until the last pages.
