The Messiah's hand by Chris Knight

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


On a seemingly ordinary Monday morning,an office secretary at Trusthouse,a reputable New Zealand Insurance firm,is astounded when she checks her answering
machine. A blood-curdling,anonymous voice has left a message on the tape sometime over the weekend,informing her that her millionaire boss,Oscar Silver,has
been kidnapped and is being held to ransom.

The information given is very curt.

The Insurance company president’s life is now for sale...The price-tag is one million NZ dollars,and the time limit,24 hours!

The voice was explicit- no police involvement or the old man prematurely meets his maker!

The old man’s life is now thrust irrevocably into the nervous hands of his naturally tight-fisted eldest son,Isaac. At his wits end,Silver’s eldest son and
Trusthouse second-in-command,is now asking himself some frightening questions: Just how serious are the unknown assailants? Just how far are they prepared
to go? Can Trusthouse afford to pay up? Can they afford not to? And just exactly, how far is Isaac prepared to go to find out?

Is he willing to gamble,wager with his father’s life or will he quickly cough up the dough?

He thinks 1933's Duck Soup is the funniest movie ever made, although The Blues Brothers comes close.
