Summary
"With a practised thumb, Jack Flynt flips the cap off a bottle of Stella Artois and listens with the disciplined ear of a news reporter looking for a headline. The black antique telephone picked up in a junk shop stares at him from the small table tucked beneath the window of his Paris apartment. It has never rung before, the cables hanging frayed and lifeless from the back of the casing. Flynt reaches for the heavy receiver. A woman's voice seeps through the static pleading for her life. He suspects his imagination, fuelled by too much Stella Artois, is playing tricks-- until the woman calls back, again and again. The ringing telephone becomes an obsession Flynt carries with him in a plastic Carrefour bag from Paris to Wales, then to Ile d'Iroise, an island off the French coast, a refuge for a community of Breton-language speakers hiding a dark secret. Flynt's only hope is to do what he does best. If he finds the mystery caller he'll find the person trying to kill her. Unless he's too late!" --
