Behind the well-known U.S. security organizations - the FBI and CIA among them - lies a heavily guarded, anonymous government agency dedicated to intelligence surveillance and to a highly specialized brand of citizen protection. Shock waves of alarm ripple through the clandestine agency when Washington, D.C., police detective Ryan Kessler inexplicably becomes the target of Henry Loving, a seasoned, ruthless “lifter” hired to obtain information using whatever means necessary.

Doesn't put you on "EDGE"

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-14-10

I'm a huge Deaver fan and have read or listened to every one of his books. This book was not what I have come to expect from a Deaver novel. The story was fine and the narrator didn't bother me as it has some reviewers. It's just that at times I thought I was listening to a David Baldacci book or maybe Vince Flynn, both authors I enjoy but not what I expect from a Deaver book. Deaver should leave the secret government operative theme to others and stick to the weird psycho killers and unique investigators who really put us on "edge" that we have come to love.
