The killer knew just where to find him . . . A superb Lt Joe Dante thriller

‘KILLER is a killer’ Donald E Westlake

‘Crisp, action-filled … whirls along towards its take-no-prisoners conclusion’ Peter Straub

The shooter knew just where Lt. Joe Dante would be and just when to bring him down. But when the gunfire stopped and the blood seeped out onto the Manhattan pavement, Dante was still alive. And now he’s bent on revenge.

A maverick detective who socialises with New York’s rich and famous and arrests society’s lowlife, Joe Dante had busted a Colombian drug enforcer and earned a price on his head. Now Dante is back at work and trying to find the killer who came after him, finding murders every step of the way.

From New York to Miami, a trail of broken bodies and shattered lives leads the New York cop closer to his quarry. But in a puzzle with a thousand pieces, Dante is missing the most dangerous one of all: who is the traitor on his own side?
