After an early morning machinegun attack by a madman called the Digger leaves dozens dead in the Washington, D.C., subway, the mayor’s office receives a message demanding twenty million dollars by midnight or more innocents will die. It is New Year’s Eve, and with the ransom note as the only evidence, Special Agent Margaret Lukas calls upon retired FBI agent and the nation’s premier document examiner Parker Kincaid to join the manhunt for the Digger—or for hundreds, the first moments of the new year will be their last on earth.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fadilah | 2/17/2014

    " Tuh kan! Pasti ujung-ujungnya penjahat sebenernya ada di belakang si tokoh utama itu sendiri. Hah! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 2/4/2014

    " This book has everything, it has a good fast paced storyline with well written and well developed characters, it has suspense and tension as well as a very human angle through Kincaid and his children and it even manages to get in a bit of science to boot. A great read, definitely one for a long day in the park on a warm day "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob Schmitz | 1/25/2014

    " There is a killer on the loose and wonderful father, Kincaid Parker, the best forensic paper analyzer (in the world?) and a darn good detective to boot, comes out of retirement to aid beautiful FBI agent Margaret Lukas to catch the fiend. The plot has a twist then a turn and another twist and you get the idea. And there are a bunch of subplots. I enjoyed learning a bit about the science of analyzing paper and the layout of the story is very clever. The telling of it left some chasms of credulity for me that I could not quite leap. A good beach book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kiluna Vyrra | 1/12/2014

    " Wooh! a totally terrific book as expected to the writer Mr. Jeffrey Deaver. The story was set on the new year's eve of 1999. According to what I had read in a site Deaver tacks on two or three different endings in the guise of twists because he isn't decided which one he prepared more. But the book turned out as an interesting piece. Unluckily for me, my copy was destroyed by the flood caused by a typhon. HUHUHU "

    " First half is slow reading, but the last 6 chapters make it all worthwhile to finish the book. Some unexpected turn of events! "

    " For a crime thriller this book was surprisingly good. I was definitely surprised by the twist at the end. Plus it also had good difference between the different characters' point-of-views. "
