Nine translators, hired to translate the eagerly awaited final book of a bestselling trilogy, are confined in a luxurious bunker. Things turn nasty when pages appear online.
The Daedalus trilogy is coming to its conclusion. A global publishing sensation (think Dragon Tattoo territory here), its publisher Eric has hired a crack team of translators in order to get the book out simultaneously in territories around the world. The first ten pages are leaked on the internet with more to come if a hefty ransom is not paid. Cue accusations, violence and gunfire as the eggheads turn on each other. ‘The Translators’ is pure guilty pleasure – tense hair-raising stuff that offers visceral thrills and the good sense to keep its best revelation to the end.
