DEAVER. DANGEROUSLY GOOD.

Henry Loving is a 'lifter', hired to extract information from his victims. He is very, very good at it.

His next target is a Washington, D.C. detective, whose family are immediately put under government protection. The man assigned to their case is protection officer Corte: uncompromising, relentlessly devoted to protecting those in his care and a brilliant game strategist.

He knows just how brutal the lifter can be - six years earlier, Loving killed someone close to him.

As tension increases inside the family, the situation escalates into a deadly contest between the hunter and his prey. As the lifter closes in, Corte must decide whether to protect his charges, or use them as bait in the name of personal revenge...

'The twists and turns from devilish Deaver will have you burning the midnight oil, then using it to set fire to the candle you'll be burning at both ends until you finish this.' Sun

MEDIA REVIEWS
'As always in a Deaver novel the plot twistst one way and then the next but the tension is superbly maintained' * The Times *
'The twists and turns from devilish Deaver will have you burning the midnight oil, then using it to set fire to the candle you'll be burning at both ends until you finish this. The seamless narrative delights and the reader is drip-fed information that will invite imaginative minds to head into overdrive . . . This is the perfect accompaniment on a winter's night, curled up on the sofa with a glass of your favourite tipple.' * Sun *
'He's mesmerising in whatever guise' * Independent on Sunday Books of the Year *
'There is no one better at wrong-footing the reader.' * Evening Standard *
'Fans of Deaver's fiendishly clever suspensers won't be surprised by the nonstop deceptions, reversals, shocks and surprises, but this time they're even more varied than usual, and, given the characters' backgrounds, a lot more plausible. The result is his most successful thriller in years.' * Kirkus, starred review *

“I blame the publisher”

Once an author becomes established it seems that the publisher just lets them get away with stuff that would never normally be allowed. This story didn't get at all interesting until about page 300, and I still... More

“Three and a half stars, just.”

Definitely not Deaver's best, however, this is an interesting, if a little stilted, read. The central character, Officer Corte (as he repeatedly reminds us, not 'Agent'!!), comes across as an... More
