The long-awaited, stand-alone sequel to The New
York Times bestselling novel Three Seconds--now a
major motion picture starring Joel Kinnaman
Presumed dead by the Stockholm police, master criminal and
undercover informant Piet Hoffmann is now on the run from
the Swedish authorities, living with his wife and two young
sons under an assumed name in Cali, Colombia. Only
Hoffmann's former police handler, Erik Wilson, knows where
he is--and that he has accepted two dangerous new jobs: one
as a high-level enforcer for a Colombian cocaine cartel and
one as an infiltrator for the DEA, working to bring the
cartel down. The FBI even lends credence to his cover story
by adding Hoffmann's alias to the Most Wanted list.
But when the Speaker of the House is kidnapped by the cartel
during an official visit to Colombia, everything
changes--fast. Hoffmann is party to the highest-profile
political kidnapping in years and therefore directly in the
firing line in what is quickly dubbed the "Final War on
Drugs." Suddenly, the Most Wanted list becomes a kill list
and the DEA cuts off all contact on orders from the top,
leaving Hoffmann and his family stranded.
Hoffmann must walk a delicate line as he tries to protect
his young family and keep up his dual role as a cartel
enforcer and a deniable intelligence asset for the US
government. It soon becomes clear that his only chance at
getting out alive is to rescue the Speaker of the House and
bring him back to the States--but to do it he'll need the
help of Ewert Grens, the stubborn, dogged Stockholm
detective who hasn't forgotten Hoffmann since the explosive
showdown in Aspsas prison years ago.
