Overview

A new thriller in the tradition of Pronzini's Snowbound, "a shivery, spine- tingling it-could-happen suspense story... a real rouser." -Publishers Weekly

The rich and powerful Jackman family had always had an obsession with successful gamesmanship-whether in the parlor, the bedroom, or in national politics. When Senator David Jackman plans an escape from Washington pressures through a long, idyllic weekend with his lover on the family's lavish island estate, he has no reason to suspect that he will leave buried there forever the man he had become.

No sooner do Jackman and Tracy arrive than the evidence begins to mount that they are not alone on the island. The threat quickly becomes dramatically real and the couple are soon running for their lives. Jackman knows the island well from his boyhood summers there and instinctively resorts to superb gamesmanship in eluding the pursuers-until Tracy is captured in a scene guaranteed to send chills up the reader's spine.

It is a deadly and terrifying "game" that then begins in earnest, full of subtle clues that are as tantalizing and challenging as they are threatening.

Trapped, exhausted, apparently doomed-truly defeated for the first time in his life-Jackman undergoes a catharsis and a revelation which change both his personality and his fate. He will play one final game, and with grim confidence he brilliantly plans and executes a turnabout on his tormentors which leads to a truly thrilling and action-packed triumph.

"Pronzini makes people and events so real that you're living those explosive days of terror."
-Robert Ludlum

"Pronzini is a pro."
-The New York Times

Meet the Author

Bill Pronzini is simply one of the masters. He seems to have taken a crack at just about every genre: mysteries, noirish thrillers, historicals, locked-room mysteries, adventure novels, spy capers, men's action, westerns, and, of course, his masterful, long-running Nameless private detective series, now entering its fourth decade, with no signs of creative flagging.

He's also ghosted several Brett Halliday short stories as Michael Shayne for Mike Shayne's Mystery Magazine, and has managed to collaborate with such fellow writers as John Lutz, Barry Wahlberg, Collin Wilcox and Marcia Muller.

Still, if he never ventured into fiction writing, his non-fiction work, as both writer and editor, would still earn him a place in the P.I. genre's Hall of Fame. Besides his two tributes to some of the very worst in crime fiction (what he calls "alternative classics"), Gun in Cheek and Son of Gun in Cheek, and one on western fiction (entitled Six Gun in Cheek, naturally), he's the co-author (with Marcia Muller) of 1001 Midnights.

The Mystery Writers of America have nominated him for Edgar Awards several times and his work has been translated into numerous languages and he's published in almost thirty countries. He was the very first president of the Private Eye Writers of America, and he's received three Shamus Awards from them, as well as its Lifetime Achievement Award in 1987.
