Detective Kessler is a Washington, D.C. cop, sidelined to routine investigations. So it's a surprise when he's targeted by a ‘lifter,’ a person who ‘lifts’ information from people by whatever means necessary. And this lifter is one of the most terrifying: he prefers to get an ‘edge’ on his target by kidnapping or endangering their family.
While the FBI and other organizations race to learn which of Kessler's seemingly insignificant cases is making somebody so uneasy they've called in a lifter, the task of safeguarding the cop, his wife and daughter, falls to expert in personal security, Corte. What ensues is a deadly contest between Corte and the lifter as each tries to outmanoeuvre the other - and a surprising conclusion that even Deaver fans won't see coming . . .

Following the moves of Deaver’s ingenious plot is hard enough. The real trick is keeping up with his brilliant mind, which honors no rules but its own. Marilyn Stasio
