Edge Reviews

“Best Fiction Pick For 2010”
— Kirkus Reviews

“Deaver unveils some nifty new tricks in this edge-of-your-seat thriller . . . Deaver’s first first-person narrator, Corte, is an exciting new weapon in the author’s arsenal of memorable characters.”
— Publishers Weekly

“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 reviews (starred review)

“This is a fine thriller with strong characters and a compelling story.”
— David Pitt, Booklist

“In Mr. Deaver’s kaleidoscope world, the odds seem to change with each turn of the page.”
— Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

“The challenge is to figure out what the rules are in this brain-teaser of a thriller, which pits two ruthless professionals against each other in a murderous contest over the lives of a Washington, D.C., police detective and his family.”
— Marilyn Stasio, New York Times
