ALICE IN JEOPARDY is the first novel in an exciting new series. Each novel is set in a different location featuring a contemporary woman whose life or children are suddenly endangered. The woman must find in herself the resources to save both her children and herself. Alice is a recently widowed young woman living in Florida with her two small children. Utterly devastated by her late husband's death in a boating accident, she is struggling to re-build her life. And as if life can't get any worse, her children are kidnapped. Surrounded by police fighting inter-departmental battles, Alice ultimately has to resort to finding and saving her children herself. ALICE IN JEOPARDY is a truly gripping book, absolutely jam-packed with twists and turns, culminating in a totally unexpected ending.

He achieves both great sales and critical acclaim: 'McBain is a perennial cause for rejoicing' The Times. 'McBain throws in switchback plot twists and false leads like the consummate pro he is and ALICE IN JEOPARDY is a terrific page-turner' Tribune. 'McBain, the old pro, cranks up the tension to breaking point ... One can only sit back and admire' Irish Times. 'He's unbeatable ... Keep 'em coming, Ed' Independent on Sunday. 'McBain back on zestful, inventive and utterly compulsive form ... so topical that it practically sprints from the page' Literary Review. '[McBain] continues to pour out brilliant stuff ... McBain's genius lies in his uncanny dialogue, his intelligent characters, clever plots and the way he can portray the human side of law agency procedures' Guardian. 'He's right at the top of the premier league of crime fiction' Mirror.
