The investigation of a politically powerful industrialist; the death of a key witness; the corruption of a federal agency. These are the explosive elements facing cynical young government lawyer Christopher Paget as he embarks on a mission that will hurl him into a brutal world of murder, kidnapping, and deception. From its intriguing beginnings to its stunning climax, international best-selling author Richard North Patterson’s first novel is a taut, gripping thriller about real people forced to face their inner fears and values.
Richard North Patterson is the New York Times best-selling author of more than twenty novels, a former chairman of Common Cause, and a member of the Council On Foreign Relations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I did not find it as well written as most of RN Patterson's books. I liked Christopher Paget in Eyes of a Child but did not warm to him in this book.
