Married and living in England under the name Michael Schaeffer, the assassin known as the Butcher’s Boy is the target of a Mafia hit team sent to exact revenge for his deadly campaign against the Balacontano family years earlier. Schaeffer kills all three attackers, but he knows more will come and needs to find whoever sent them to end it once and for all.

Soon Elizabeth Waring, now high up in the Organized Crime Division of the Justice Department, receives a surprise late-night visit from the Butcher’s Boy. Knowing she keeps track of the Mafia, he asks her who the three men work for. Not knowing they have been murdered, she gives him a name: Frank Tosca, an aspirant to the Balacontano throne. In exchange, he tells her about a murder Tosca committed over twenty years ago. So begins a new assault on organized crime—and the uneasy alliance between the Butcher’s Boy and Waring, who trade current information for old secrets.

As the Butcher’s Boy works his way ever closer to his quarry in an effort to protect his new way of life, Waring finds herself in a race against time, either to convince him to become a protected informant or to take him out of commission for good.

Quotes & Awards

  • “There are probably only half a dozen suspense writers alive who can be depended upon to deliver high-voltage shocks; vivid, sympathetic characters; and compelling narratives each time they publish. Thomas Perry is one of them.”

    Stephen King

  • “Thomas Perry is, quite simply, brilliant. And as each book comes out he becomes more so.”

    Robert B. Parker

  • “A book-length war of nerves that accentuates the best of Mr. Perry’s gift for using pure logic and gamesmanship to generate breathless nonstop suspense.”

    New York Times

  • “Perry offers a compelling, rapid-fire plot, credible Mafia and FBI secondary characters, an indictment of self-serving officialdom, and the old soul-shattering moral dilemma: What is truth?”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

    Library Journal (starred review)

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Sharron | 1/26/2014

    " Totally implausible story but so compelling that you just don't care. Non stop thrills with two great characters. Dont miss it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Cari | 1/6/2014

    " This was a solid third in the Butcher's Boy series, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the others. I was bit irritated with some danging plot lines from the previous 2 novels and was not fully on board with the premise for the Butcher's Boy's return in this version. But Perry continues to deliver exciting page turners - a good listen. "

    " First book about The Butcher's Boy I have read. I have enjoyed other Perry books, so I knew I was going to be caught up in the story from the beginning, and I was not disappointed. Five stars! "
