The Ruins

The Ruins



Nursing the mother of all hangovers, Will Slater skydives into the Taklamakan Desert in western China under cover of darkness.

He’s searching for three American college dropouts, believed to have been kidnapped by the East Turkestan Islamic Movement. And then, all at once, he finds himself in a no-holds-barred war with both the jihadists and China’s secret police. Because the hostages are lined up for the most painful demise imaginable, and Slater sure as hell isn’t going to let that happen.

By the time he makes it out of the desert, he realises he should have listened to the oldest advice in the book.

Don’t trust anyone.
Not a goddamn soul.
