When Washington D.C. police detective Ryan Kessler is targeted by Henry Loving, he and his family are immediately put under government protection. Loving is a ruthless "lifter", hired to extract information from his victims, and he will use whatever means necessary including kidnapping, torturing or killing their family.

Assigned to the Kesslers is protection officer Corte: uncompromising, relentlessly devoted to protecting those in his care and a brilliant game strategist. He also knows just how brutal the lifter can be – six years earlier, Loving killed someone close to him. As tension increases between the family, the situation escalates into a deadly contest between protector and lifter as each tries to outwit the other. And as the lifter closes in on his prey, Corte must decide whether to protect his charges, or expose them to a killer in the name of personal revenge...

Pressröster:
"Deaver unveils some nifty new tricks in this edge-of-your-seat thriller. Deaver's first first-person narrator, Corte, is an exciting new weapon in the author's arsenal of memorable characters." - Publishers Weekly

"Fans of Deaver's fiendishly clever suspensers won't be surprised by the nonstop deceptions, reversals, shocks and surprises, but this time they're even more varied than usual, and, given the characters' backgrounds, a lot more plausible. The result is his most successful thriller in years." - Kirkus reviews (starred review)

"This is a fine thriller with strong characters and a compelling story." - David Pitt, Booklist

"In Mr. Deaver's kaleidoscope world, the odds seem to change with each turn of the page." - Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

"The challenge is to figure out what the rules are in this brain-teaser of a thriller, which pits two ruthless professionals against each other in a murderous contest over the lives of a Washington, D.C., police detective and his family." - Marilyn Stasio, New York Times
