The second of the Rune thrillers - set in New York.
Jeff Deaver was a lawyer before quitting work to become a full-time writer. He divides his time between Washington, DC and California.
'Deaver is a terrific storyteller, and he takes the reader on a rollercaoster of suspense, violence and mystery ... Good entertainment' -- Susanna Yager, Daily Telegraph 'Jeffery Deaver's fiendish new suspense thriller ... Amazing as it sounds, Deaver makes the intellectual puzzle the most thrilling part of his high-anxiety drama, which twists, turns and leaves us weak' -- The New York Times Book Review 'Principal characters unusually vivid and sympathetic... Rapidly paced, wholly engrossing tale' -- Publisher's Weekly 'A truly engrossing thriller. Psychological thriller writers do not come much better than Deaver. His cogent plotting, smooth characterisation and (best of all) psychological profiling of his villains is all nonpareil' -- The Times Crime Supplement
