Publisher Comments:

“BRILLIANT . . . A BONA FIDE NAIL-BITER . . . Thomas Perry’s cerebral thrillers unfold methodically, in extremely sharp focus. His attention to detail is so intense that it generates its own brand of quiet suspense.”

–The New York Times

Roy Prescott is all alone in the world, living lies, making plans, meticulously going about his job. Prescott’s job is to hunt people down . . . and then to kill them. Now he has been hired to find a monster–a man who is as alone as he is, as smart, as methodical, as deadly, and even more arrogant. Prescott knows that to find this monster he must get inside his head, get him angry, and force him to come after him. Soon he gets his wish. With a little luck, the killer even makes a mistake–trying to prove a point to Prescott. But Prescott needs no proof. He already knows what he’s up against. He knows that innocent people are going to die. The only question now is which one of them will get the first shot–which one will get the last. . . .

Synopsis:

When 13 patrons in a Louisville restaurant are murdered, the police call in criminology professor Daniel Millikan to profile the murderer. The investigation stalls, so Millikan calls in the only man capable of tracking down the elusive killer: Roy Prescott, a professional manhunter who uses methods beyond the scope of the law. Winner of the first Gumshoe Award for Best Novel.

Synopsis:

“Perry is the best suspense writer in the business. . . . Pursuit is relentless, filled with twists and turns, that rare page-turner that keeps one reading late into the night to finish.”

–The Boston Globe

Thirteen bodies are found in a Louisville restaurant. When the police can find no suspect or motive, a victim’s family seeks the services of the enigmatic and solitary specialist Roy Prescott, known for his ability to find people who don’t want to be found. Working outside the law and willing to do what the police can’t, Prescott hunts the killer, an elusive adversary who is as smart, as methodical, as deadly as he is. The only way to conduct this pursuit is to goad the killer into believing that he must kill Roy Prescott. It is a contest fought from one end of the country to the other, and both men understand that when it’s over, only one of them will be alive.
