Peter Lime is trained to hunt down his prey and catch them on film.
But now he is the one being hunted. Whose prey has he become? And what is it that he has that these people will kill to get?
Lime is a Danish paparazzo, living in Madrid. For more than 20 years he has stalked and captured the rich and famous on film, making vast sums of money from exposing their secrets - the more salacious the image, the bigger the fee.
But lately he's been thinking of giving it up. His wife and child have changed his life, and now he dreams of doing a job that his daughter can be proud of.
Then he goes on a routine assignment, snapping a Spanish minister out sailing with his mistress, and suddenly his world is turned upside down.
When a fire destroys his home, but not all of his photographs, Lime sets out to discover a motive and finds himself drawn into the complex and terrifying web of international terrorism.

Review by theboylatham
Five out of ten.
A Danish photographer, living in Spain, snaps a government member in a private clinch with a girlfriend and knows that'll be worth a million dollars. Next thing you know he is arrested and his wife and child are dead - all just for a photo? An decent thriller that requires little thinking. Covering a massive range of subjects (from the KGB to the IRA) it's interesting even if a little slow at times.
