#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR

RICHARD NORTH PATTERSON
Author of Balance of Power

NO SAFE PLACE

“It’s safe to say that No Safe Place is the best political thriller since Alan Drury’s Advise & Consent.”
Rocky Mountain News



“ENGROSSING . . . AMBITIOUS AND WELL-WRITTEN, NO SAFE PLACE IS A SORT OF ETHICAL SUSPENSE NOVEL.”
—The Wall Street Journal

In the high-stakes, high-pressure world of presidential politics, where predators carry microphones and one misstep can savage a lifetime of achievement, Kerry Kilcannon is the rarest player of all. Kilcannon believes he can make the system work. And he just may die trying.

Driven by the violent nightmare of his childhood, fueled by forces that few could understand, and burdened by secrets no one must know, Kilcannon is running for President—and entering the crucial battleground of California with seven days to go. But for Kilcannon, there are hurdles that his courage, charisma, and compassion may not overcome: the network correspondent he still loves; the reporter bent on their exposure; the rival who’ll do anything to win; and the fanatic who believes that he must murder Kilcannon to protect the right to life. . . .

“HIGH DRAMA . . . THE PAGES TURN QUICKLY.”
—The Washington Post Book World

“COMPELLING . . . IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT DOWN.”
Detroit News/Free Press



Richard North Patterson’s novels include seven consecutive international bestsellers. His novels have won an Edgar Allan Poe Award and the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière. Formerly a trial lawyer in Washington and San Francisco, Mr. Patterson also served as an assistant attorney general in Ohio and as the SEC’s liaison to the Watergate special prosecutor, and he is now on the boards of several Washington-based advocacy groups dealing with gun violence, political reform, and reproductive rights. He lives with his wife, Laurie, and their family in San Francisco and on Martha’s Vineyard.

Synopsis:

In a New York Times best-seller, the author of The Final Judgment plunges a candidate with a traumatic past into the whirlpool of a campaign for the presidency, and into the sights of a fanatical killer. Reprint.
