Marine-turned-novelist Jack Dana is back in Louis Begley's most intense, suspenseful, and deadly adventure yet.
With the death of his nemesis, corrupt business mogul Abner Brown, retired Marine Jack Dana thought he could finally return to his peaceful career as a novelist. And after falling hard for Heidi Krohn, the glamorous high-powered lawyer who helped avenge his best friend's death, Jack is beginning to dream of starting a family of his own.
But dark forces intervene to upend Jack's comfortable new life. When two of his Uncle Harry's closest friends are brutally murdered in their own home, Jack swears he will get to the bottom of what could have prompted such a vicious attack. The answers he begins to uncover are shocking. A career criminal, long hidden in the shadows of Abner Brown's organization, has gone rogue after his benefactor's death and has made it his mission to get even with the man who ruined Abner: Jack Dana. With the help of his old friends in the CIA, Jack scrambles to bring down this terrifying new threat, and when Heidi and her family are kidnapped, Jack is forced to make the most painful choice of all.
In Killer's Choice, master stylist Louis Begley returns to Jack's Upper East Side millieu in full force, reprising familiar characters and introducing memorable new faces, and concluding Jack's chilling saga with his most violent crescendo to date.
