Publisher's Summary

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....

Critic Reviews

"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)

Too Long

Way too long. Story got repetitive. Holes in logic. Protagonist could have killed his assailant several times but ran away. The well trained assailant misses his target repeatedly killing everyone else. What a bad shot. If shorter, it would have been tolerable, but it kept on & on. Narration was excellent, only thing that kept me listening.
