Jeffery Deaver is the "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Empty Chair" and "The Devil's Teardrop." Here his trademark "ticking-bomb suspense" "(People)" explodes off the page in another heart-stopping thriller.
Hollywood location scout John Pellam thought the scenic backwater town of Maddox, Missouri, would be the perfect site for an upcoming "Bonnie and Clyde"-style film. But after real bullets leave two people dead and one cop paralyzed, he's more sought after than the Barrow Gang. Pellam had unwittingly wandered onto the crime scene just minutes before the brutal hits. Now the feds and local police want him to talk. Mob enforcers want him silenced. And a mysterious blonde just wants him. Trapped in a town full of sinister secrets and deadly deceptions, Pellam fears that death will imitate art, as the film shoot — and his life — race toward a breathtakingly bloody climax.
