9781472236159: Pendulum: The explosive thriller you won't be able to put down

Solitary photojournalist John Wallace struggles to consciousness to find he has been bound and blindfolded by a masked man who is preparing to hang him in his own living room. Forced onto a chair with a noose around his neck, Wallace briefly reconsiders his mostly lonely life before the chair is kicked out beneath him and his world fades to black.

Then he gets lucky and manages to escape his apartment, just ahead of his assailant. Bloody, barefoot, and with at least one broken rib, he has no choice but to run for his life. With no idea who would want to kill him, he makes it to the hospital and files a police report, but it soon becomes clear that as far as the authorities are concerned the only threat to Wallace's life is himself, and he is placed under suicide watch.

When his would-be killer strikes again, Wallace realizes he will have to figure out who is hunting him and stop him on his own. The pendulum of fate swung briefly in his favor, but it's only a matter of time before its momentum carries it to the other side . . .

Review:

"I read Pendulum in one gloriously suspenseful weekend. Definitely one of the best thrillers of the year."
James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author


"Adam Hamdy's high-octane cat-and-mouse psychological thriller offers relentless suspense, quicksilver pacing and characters with surprising depth."
Shelf Awareness


"As a suspense-filled thriller and a warning to civilization about its dependency on technology, Pendulum by Adam Hamdy succeeds beautifully."
New York Journal of Books


"Wild, bewildering and fantastic...I hope for more by this talented and innovative author."
Great Mysteries and Thrillers


"fast-paced, cinematic thriller"
Publishers Weekly

"There are treats along the way... expands into a wide-screen thriller involving bombs, helicopters, and a law-enforcement army."―Booklist

"Hamdy grabs the reader from the first line and doesn't let up on the pace or the tension for a moment...This is heart-stopping stuff!"―CHOICE

"Action-packed, high-octane, broad-brush-stroke thriller...says something worth listening to."―Mystery People

"A strong cast of characters and the author's ability to engage the reader with an engrossing and invigorating plot whet the reader's appetite for more."
Mystery Scene

"This relentlessly suspenseful thriller kept my interest until the denouement... Loved the action scenes though, very well done."―Deadly Pleasures Magazine
