Produktbeschreibung
A taut thriller that takes readers from the office suites of Manhattan to the tidy elegance of Sag Harbor and the rough-and-tumble western plains of Brazil. "Fans of Lee Child's Jack Reacher should enjoy Jack Dana's adventures."-Publishers Weekly Jack Dana, a star student at Yale, joins the military after 9/11-only to have sniper fire cut short his career as a Marine Corps infantry officer. While recovering at Walter Reed Hospital, he begins to write a novel about his wartime experience. Jack's uncle Harry, a surrogate father to him, as well as a partner at a leading New York law firm, helps Jack secure a publisher. Jack is thrilled when his book becomes a huge success, but after a celebratory trip to South America, Jack returns home to shocking news: Uncle Harry is dead, found hanged in his summer home. Horrified and incredulous, Jack digs into the facts surrounding the tragedy and comes to believe that his uncle's death was no suicide. Delays of law are not for Jack, so he takes matters into his own hands-embarking on a dangerous journey of justice and revenge. Look for all of Louis Begley's gripping Jack Dana thrillers: KILLER, COME HITHER • KILL AND BE KILLED • KILLER'S CHOICE

Rezensionen
"Begley writes clean, crisp, graceful prose, the kind that's always rare and ever a blessing. Also, he sets his story in a world he knows well, that of Ivy League graduates and elite law firms, of people who inhabit the Upper East Side, enjoy Manhattan's premier restaurants, patronize the ballet and opera and spend their weekends amid the pleasures of Long Island's Sag Harbor. Begley evokes this world effortlessly because he knows it inside out."
-Washington Post

"A stealthy, page-turning thriller ... all admirers of crisp prose and taut plotlines will gladly follow Jack on his deadly quest to circumvent the law."
-Booklist

"Begley's luminous prose never falters. This novel is, in short, a treat for the reader of fine fiction, a reader who just might admit, just once, to thoroughly enjoying a thriller."
-Hudson Valley News

"A thoroughly enjoyable read, and recommended."
