|A U.S. citizen in the Bahamas is shot by a sniper par excellence--a man capable of delivering a "million-dollar bullet" into the heart of his targets, a mile or more away. The investigation reveals that the victim, a man known to have strong anti-American sympathies, was assassinated by the U.S. government.|
From the Publisher:
Lincoln Rhyme and his partner Amelia Sachs investigate the murder of an anti-American sympathizer in the Bahamas, who may have been taken out by the U.S. government in this new suspense novel from the author of The Bone Collector. 300,000 first printing.
Jeffery Wilds Deaver was born and raised in Chicago. He attended the University of Missouri and received a law degree from Fordham University. A self-described "terrible attorney," Deaver quit the law in 1990 to pursue a full-time writing career based on his fascination with and love of suspense. "When I teach courses in writing," Deaver said in a barnesandnoble.com interview, "I always tell my students to write what you enjoy reading and I have always been a big fan of the sort of book I write--the plot-driven commercial thriller." Deaver's modus operandi has proven lucrative since his first book was published in the early 1990s. Several of his books have achieved best-seller status and two--THE BONE COLLECTOR (1997) and A MAIDEN'S GRAVE (1995)--have been adapted for film. Deaver's sister, Julie Reece Deaver, is an author of young adult books.
