Acclaimed bestselling author Jeffery Deaver takes listeners on a brand-new adventure: a race to find and stop a professional criminal whose gruesome specialty lies in extracting information from his innocent victims by any means necessary.

Washington, D.C. police detective Ryan Kessler is targeted by a “lifter”—a hired criminal who uses any “edge” he can to get information his mysterious boss desperately needs, including torture, murder, and kidnapping. The job of keeping Kessler and his family alive long enough to find the ultimate perp falls to a seasoned federal protection officer known only as Corte, a man with mysteries of his own and an uncompromising devotion to keeping those in his care alive. Corte and the lifter engage in a deadly contest as the story races to a surprise conclusion that not even the most seasoned Deaver fans can predict. Download and start listening now!
