Parker Kincaid has spent his life examining important documents, seeking clues to authenticity or authorship. But he has never faced a puzzle as daunting as the one the FBI presents him with on New Years Eve: an extortionist has sent a note to Washington's mayor, threatening hundreds of lives if $20 million is not paid to him by noon. The minutes tick away relentlessly in this superb cat-and-mouse thriller.
I love Jeffery Deaver's stuff. this book was read as part of a Readers Digest book, so again, I felt I missed out on the 'fine bits'. Great stuff, every police/thriller reader will enjoy this.
