Overview

From the bestselling author of the classic Brotherhood of the Rose espionage saga comes a high-action thriller about the meaning of friendship and the naked edge between love and hate.

He calls himself Cavanaugh. No first name, and even “Cavanaugh” isn’t his actual last name. He’s a protector. Once he had a boyhood best friend. They played in the woods near their homes, pretending to be soldiers surviving behind enemy lines. Grownup, they belonged to Delta Force and later worked for the world’s best security company.

Now their lives have taken drastically different paths, pitting them against each other, forcing them to play their boyhood game again, this time to learn who dies.
The survival of a great city hangs in the balance as two friends-turned-enemies hunt each other and discover that there’s a line between predators and prey, a line that’s called The Naked Edge.



This e-book version of The Naked Edge contains numerous photographs of the classic knives described in the novel. These include the legendary knife that Warner Bros designed for Alan Ladd’s 1952 film about Jim Bowie, The Iron Mistress. Another of the many photographs depicts the most expensive knife in the world: a solid-gold replica of King Tut’s dagger.

    "Non-stop" comes to mind and an covert education to boot!

    David Morrell is the author who brought us Rambo, and in this book, our hero is the thinking man's Rambo. It's one nearly fatal surprise after another, and the book ends with the reader wanting more ... much more.
    Enjoy ... or else!

    Lots of twists and turns through the first three quarters of the book but goes melodramatic at the end in a way that makes no logical sense. It's a story of a pro-active villian dealing with a reactive hero so you know who sets the agenda for the action in the novel.Jsut a so-so read.
