Edge A Novel ( CD)
|Acclaimed bestselling author Jeffery Deaver takes listeners on a brand-new adventure: a race to find and stop a professional criminal whose gruesome specialty lies in extracting information from his innocent victims by any means necessary. |
Washington, D.C. police detective Ryan Kessler is targeted by a "lifter"--a hired criminal who uses any "edge" he can to get information his mysterious boss desperately needs, including torture, murder, and kidnapping. The job of keeping Kessler and his family alive long enough to find the ultimate perp falls to a seasoned federal protection officer known only as Corte, a man with mysteries of his own and an uncompromising devotion to keeping those in his care alive. Corte and the lifter engage in a deadly contest as the story races to a surprise conclusion that not even the most seasoned Deaver fans can predict.
Henry Loving is a brutal killer, with a frightening intelligence to match his ruthlessness. Known for his techniques of information extraction, he is not a man to be messed with. So when it becomes clear that D.C. police officer Ryan Kessler is Loving's next target, the entire Kessler family is given protection. Corte is the man assigned to protect the Kesslers, but he has personal vendetta out on Loving. Will Corte be able to protect this innocent family and exact his revenge? This is an exciting thriller from best-seller Jeffrey Deaver.
