“I WAS DETECTING A PATTERN. I was also tiring of being one step behind. I needed to figure out how to get one step ahead. That was the problem with following clues: you were following. Behind by definition. Getting ahead required ideas. I had a couple to try.”
“But why? Why clean up at all? Isn’t this perfect? Isn’t this all the evidence you’ll ever need to get out of jail? Especially with what you told me about Casey.” “You’re right. I have what I came here for. But the picture has changed. It’s grown much larger, much more devious and complex. To make things right, I’ve got to go back to Russia, back to where this all began.”
This is a well-written thriller with a compelling, resourceful cast. If you want edge-of-your seat, this one is for you.
