The Body of David Hayes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With more than six million copies of his books in print, New York Times bestselling author Ridley Pearson returns with another great Lou Boldt novel.

Years ago, Lou Boldt's wife Liz had an affair with David Hayes, young computer specialist at the bank where she is an executive. When Liz ended the relationship after reconciling with Lou, Hayes engaged in a daring embezzlement scheme.

Now, years later, Hayes is trying to retrieve the money he hid for the Russian mob and contacts Liz to try to gain access to the bank's mainframe. Liz is torn between wanting to protect the bank and needing to protect her family. Boldt, ripped apart by the discovery of his wife's possible blackmail, must skate a delicate line between his incompatible roles as determined detective and jealous husband if he is to find the money while exposing and stopping Hayes.

Intensely involving and revealing new aspects of Boldt's emotional makeup never before seen, The Body of David Hayes is Ridley's most gripping and engaging thriller yet.

Review:

"I've been a [Pearson] fan for a long time — in the field of crime fiction, he always plows new ground." Michael Connelly

Review:

"Strong, inventive and a decided cut above standard police procedurals with well-drawn, intense characters and great plotting . . . a must." The Baltimore Sun

Review:

"Pearson's novels are always well written, and he takes special care with richly drawn subordinate characters. Intriguing, exciting, and highly recommended for most popular fiction collections." Robert Conroy, Library Journal

Review:

"Lt. Lou Boldt is still top cop in the ninth installment of Pearson's Seattle Police Department series....Pearson wisely eschews... sentimentalism as he builds to a climactic finale in which Boldt cleverly manipulates friend and foe alike to save Liz and serve justice." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Lou Boldt's life is ripped apart by the discovery of his wife's possible blackmail. To stop the blackmailer, he must skate a delicate line between his incompatible roles as determined detective and jealous husband.
