The Piper’s Promise

The Piper’s Promise

Author(s): Alex Breck

Location(s): Scottish Highlands, Tokyo

Genre(s): Thriller

Era(s): Contemporary

When his best friend Thad is arrested for a series of murders he didn’t commit on the wrong side of the planet, the young Scottish adventurer, Ridge Walker, must find the real killer in order to prove his innocence. But as Ridge crosses swords with a merciless adversary and the savage ethos of centuries of warrior culture, the death toll speeds up and the seemingly random slayings take on a laser-sharp accuracy slicing ever closer to those he loves.
Two worlds collide in this race against time. As he sinks deeper into the macabre quagmire of a sick and vengeful mind he begins to realize the full horror that awaits him.
They say ‘the apple never falls far from the tree’ and it’s going to be a bitter harvest this season.
