Henry Loving is perhaps the best "lifter" there is as he can get anyone to provide him the information he requires. He is especially adept at torturing his targets, but what makes him the absolute top gun is his uncanny ability to find the lever that gives him the Edge, which makes everyone he aims at dance to his tune. No one pushes people buttons like he does.

Federal government Strategic Protection Department "shepherd" Agent Corte protects targets from lifters. An intercepted message names Loving as the lifter directed to extract information from DC metro detective Ryan Kessler. Corte is assigned to keep Ryan from harm and his family safe so they cannot be used as pawns. He is also trying to identify who hired Loving. Meanwhile the lifter works on finding the means to get what he needs from the cop.

Though over the top, readers will not care as the Corte-Loving grandmaster chess match is a superb cat and mouse thriller in which readers will keep changing their mind as to who the feline is and who the rodent is in this deadly cerebral contest. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with action as each keeps placing the other in check, but checkmate seems just out of reach. Jeffery Deaver is at his entertaining best with this High Noon confrontation between the two best gunslingers in the world.

Horrible Example of a Writer Meeting a Deadline

A huge disappointment. I normally at least like Deaver novels, but this one was not only unbelievable in its plots and characters, it became more and more unbelievable until its ridiculous conclusion. I found myself saying aloud (and with disgust) at each plot twist, "oh, PLEASE!" The characters could be said to be one dimensional if they had a dimension, but they don't. The characters do not draw our emotions, unless boredom is an emotion. Too bad the publishers don't can bad books by good authors.
