Overview

Detective Jeremy Fisk tracks a serial sniper who is terrorizing New York City with state-of-the-art airborne technology in this electrifying next novel in the New York Times bestselling series from Law & Order creator Dick Wolf

When hacker Merritt Verlyn releases sensitive documents from the NYPD Intelligence Divi-sion to WikiLeaks, some of New York City's deadliest criminals suddenly gain access to Detective Jeremy Fisk's unlisted home address. Within hours, three deadly assailants arrive at his Sutton Place apartment looking for blood.

Authorities quickly identify and arrest Verlyn, but the damage is done. Forced from his home and his bank accounts drained, Fisk confronts Chay Maryland, the beautiful New York Times reporter who has been covering Verlyn's case. Fisk wants her help to get close to the leaker--to find out what Verlyn really wants and who else is involved--but Chay refuses to yield her sources.

The investigation is nearly derailed when a series of seemingly random shootings leaves innocent people dead on the streets. A father running in Central Park and a retired math teacher searching for lost change in Battery Park are both shot and killed by an incredibly precise sniper who is never seen and leaves no traces. When the authorities receive a menacing message from someone named "Yodeler," who threatens to sacrifice a citizen every day until Verlyn is released, Fisk and Chay have no choice but to team up and discover what the leaker really knows.

With the clock ticking and millions of lives at stake, Fisk and Chay must find the mastermind before he can wreak havoc on a city paralyzed by fear. This masterful, broad-shouldered American thriller is full of swagger and surprises, and ends in a heart-stopping, highly dramatic showdown, which no suspense lover will soon forget.

In bestseller Wolf’s exciting third Jeremy Fisk novel (after 2014’s The Execution), the head of a Mexican drug cartel, angered that an attempt to kill the NYPD Intelligence Division detective has failed, calls in a master assassin to complete the job. Meanwhile, a fanatical killer using drones and calling himself Yodeler promises to kill a person a day until imprisoned whistle-blower Merritt Verlyn, who provided Intelligence Division documents to WikiLeaks, is released. The Joint Terrorism Task Force team is formed to deal with Yodeler’s threat and track down the thousands of missing documents that Verlyn stole. Fisk ends up a reluctant partner with New York Times journalist Chay Maryland, who may hold the key to the missing documents. In spite of a bewildering alphabet soup of agencies, gadgets, and systems, plus numerous subplots, Wolf keeps the story moving briskly. Fisk and Maryland make a surprisingly good team, and both play key roles in the startling ending. (June)
