Thirteen bodies are found in a Louisville restaurant. When the police can find no suspect or motive, the family of one of the victims seeks the services of the enigmatic and solitary Roy Prescott, known for his ability to find people who don’t want to be found.

Working outside the law and willing to do what the police can’t, Prescott hunts the killer, an elusive adversary who is as smart, as methodical, as deadly as he is. The only way to conduct this pursuit is to goad the killer into believing that he must kill Roy Prescott. It is a contest fought from one end of the country to the other, and both men understand that, when it’s over, only one of them will be alive.

    " I love Thomas Perry's books. I'm glad I didn't discover him until 2010 because I spent many happy hours catching up. His books remind me of Elmore Leonard, Donald Westlake, Ed McBain. Well written and thoroughly enjoyable. "

    " Perry never fails to keep me hanging on every word and this novel was no exception. The chase of a professional killer by a man just-this-side of the same same coin lead all over the country and to some nail-biting on my part. Great for anyone who enjoys suspense! "
