Torture Man by Warren Adler begins with a chance encounter that Sarah Raab has with Carl Helman, associated with the CIA, which leaves her with a yet to be repaid debt. When Sarah is confronted with the kidnapping of her daughter, Rachel, she seeks help from Carl. Carl visits her home and traces the crime to the bigoted Egyptian, Iris, working presently as tutor to Rachel. With Iris refusing to crack under his questioning, Carl uses his connections to carry out a bold plan to put her under severe stress, forcing her to cede some of her advantages and giving him hopes of an early success. But she proves to be of tougher material, and many of his efforts are in vain.
Torture Man by Warren Adler is drama on every page, with suspenseful and gripping scenes. The characters chosen for this novel, though from the traditionally observed backgrounds for such books, are shown realistically and blend easily with the plot. It is an imaginative and terrifying story, a thriller from the first page to the last, and also an exciting drama. With many interwoven snippets of personal tragedies and events relating to almost all the characters, the ‘story’ in this tale reaches epic proportions. It is a worthy addition to one's collection of thrillers. Very well narrated, this kept me immersed from the time I opened the book till I reached the back cover.
