Description
"Geiger has a gift: he knows a lie the instant he hears it. And in his business--called "information retrieval" by its practitioners--that gift is invaluable, because truth is the hottest thing on the market. Geiger's clients count on him to extract the truth from even the most reluctant subjects. Unlike most of his competitors, Geiger rarely sheds blood, but he does use a variety of techniques--some physical, many psychological--to push his subjects to a point where pain takes a backseat to fear. Because only then will they finally stop lying. One of Geiger's rules is that he never works with children. So when his partner, former journalist Harry Boddicker, unwittingly brings in a client who insists that Geiger interrogate a twelve-year-old boy, Geiger responds instinctively. He rescues the boy from his captor, removes him to the safety of his New York City loft, and promises to protect him from further harm. But if Geiger and Harry cannot quickly discover why the client is so desperate to learn the boy's secret, they themselves will become the victims of an utterly ruthless adversary"--

Surviving by instinct, and an innate ability to detect truth amongst lies, Geiger established himself as an expert in Information Retrieval. Which is to say: torture. Almost devoid of human emotion, he will stop at nothing to get the job done. His methods range from the psychologically complex to straightforward brutality. His clients are referred to him from international corporations, government agencies and organised crime; his skills are in worldwide demand. Geiger only has one rule: he will never work on a child. So when a client presents Geiger with a twelve-year-old boy his instinct is to walk away. But the alternative - the unknown horror that may await the boy elsewhere - is too awful to contemplate. In accepting this assignment in an attempt to save the boy, he will also uncover his own history, no matter how torturous that proves to be..., PS, PS3619.M5919I67 2012, Read by Ari Fliakos., Smith, Mark Allen., St Martins Pr, C/O Mps 175 Fifth Ave, New York, NY, USA, 10010SAN 631-5011, St Martins Pr,2012., Suspense fiction., THE INQUISITOR, The inquisitor :a novel /Mark Allen Smith., The inquisitor :a novelMark Allen Smith., Torturers, Unabridged., WF1CD, [United States]:Macmillan Audio ,2012., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/mcm_9781427214782_180.jpeg, n-us-ny, online resourcecr, pcc, spoken wordspw
