A new chapter begins for legendary former anti-terrorist cop John Corey in the most thrilling and outrageously entertaining novel of the year.
***The brand new John Corey bestseller from America's Greatest Living Thriller Writer.***
'Bottom line, if a man is known by his enemies, I'm one helluva guy.'
Former anti-terrorist cop John Corey is NYU - New York Unemployed - and watching his back, ever more convinced his past will soon catch up with him. Then a new opportunity comes calling, and with it, plenty of trouble . . .
A series of bodies has been found along a beach close to his home and he can no longer deny that a serial killer is on the loose, and no one seems able to find the culprit. Is the failure to find the perpetrator a result of the department's oversight? Is it due to the fact the victims are prostitutes? Or is it something darker? Could the killer be someone on the inside?
John Corey must root out friend and foe in this dazzling thriller, which features his trademark snark, matched by brilliant investigative skills, and the masterful plot twists that are a signature of the #1 New York Times bestseller Nelson DeMille.
