A father murdered. A wife kidnapped. A lethal drug. A teacher caught in the middle. In Point of Control, a modern Bogotá conceals a dark past of assassination, kidnapping and murder that echoes across a century of Colombian history. Now, ex-pat English teacher Anders Neyman must race to clear his name after he is implicated in a series of kidnappings in the capital that includes one of his own students. Joined in tragedy with an unlikely team of a veteran detective, a war-scarred soldier and a grieving husband, they confront a conspiracy that threatens to shatter the country’s fragile stalemate in the post Uribe era. Drawing on historical events, Point of Control weaves history with fiction in a page-turner that propels Anders and the amateur detectives towards a bloody confrontation with a cast of ruthless kidnappers and callous thieves in a fight not only for their survival but for the fate of the country. $0.99 on Kindle.
