Morrell...can still spin a tale of conspiracy that leaves others in the dust... this powerhouse thriller achieves a runaway victory on the basis of sheer storytelling excitement. - Publishers Weekly.
Pow! A counterterrorists pipe dream of the good life after hes left the CIA erupts in an explosive, cartoonish vendetta in this cotton-candy thriller from Morrell. Remember all those short stories that were supposed to pack as much plot and feeling as a full-scale novel? Well, heres the novel. - Kirkus.
Rambo creator Morrell (First Blood, 1972) deserves high marks in the espionage genre. Fans of Le Carres pretzel plots will enjoy this spirited thriller. - Library Journal.
OVERVIEW: At forty, Steve Decker is one of Americas most accomplished anti-terrorist operatives. Then a bungled covert operation kills twenty-three people in Rome and leaves Decker shouldering the blame. Embittered by the fiasco, he retires to the mountains of New Mexico and there meets an extraordinary woman named Beth Dwyer. She changes his life. Suddenly Decker has the very things he had lived so long without: a beautiful, brilliant woman he longs to marry and a future that could include children. But when a terrifying assault rips his world apart, Beth disappears - leaving an agonizing mystery in her wake. Who is this woman he loved so completely, almost to the point of obsession? Is she still alive? Was she captured by Deckers enemies or her own? Did she love him or use him - possibly as bait in some sinister plan? Reaching back into his shadowy past, Decker discovers that two malicious - and diametrically opposed - forces have been stalking him. To stay alive, Decker must use all his carefully honed skills, stay one step ahead of his murderous enemies, and pray that luck is on his side as he moves from hunter to hunted, from the deserts of Santa Fe to the streets of New York City. For Decker the stakes couldnt be higher: Beths life, Beths love, and, most of all, the truth.
