About this item
A New York Times Bestseller -- Washington, D.C. police detective Ryan Kessler has been targeted by a "lifter"-- a hired criminal who uses any means to get information his boss needs, including murder, torture, and kidnapping. The job of keeping Kessler and his family alive long enough to find the ultimate perp falls to a seasoned federal protection officer called Corte, a man with mysteries of his own and an uncompromising devotion to keeping those in his care alive. Publishers Weekly,Thriller Award-winner Deaver (The Bodies Left Behind) unveils some nifty new tricks in this edge-of-your-seat thriller that pits two worthy antagonists against each other. Henry Loving, "a lifter," specializes in extracting information from human targets by any means necessary (i.e., torture). Corte, "a shepherd," is an agent in the Strategic Protection Department of a secret government agency normally assigned to protect high-profile targets. An intercepted communication identifies Loving as the lifter ordered to target Ryan Kessler, a Washington, D.C., metro detective. While Corte attempts to protect Kessler's family and identify the "primary," Loving's employer, Loving seeks the edge to get the information he needs to extract. Corte, a board game aficionado and game theory student, and Loving are well matched, sharing a history that ups the stakes and makes the contest personal. Deaver's first first-person narrator, Corte, is an exciting new weapon in the author's arsenal of memorable characters. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
