9780061012204: The Informant (v. 1)

By the author of the bestselling The Pardon, this fast-paced novel teams a resourceful FBI agent and an embattled journalist in a hunt for two men -- a serial killer and his elusive informant.

When an informer chooses Miami Tribune crime reporter Michael Posten as his conduit, giving him information about murders that haven't yet taken place, investigators speculate on whether the killer and informer are the same person. As the newspaper continues to deposit larger sums into the killer's account, FBI agent Victoria Santos and the reluctant journalist join forces to prevent the next gruesome murder. But then dues stop and the murders continue... until a psychopath makes one mistake too many. This gripping, unpredictable story of revenge will not be soon forgotten.

"James Grippando writes with the authenticity of an insider....The Informant is a thoroughly convincing, edge-of-your seat thriller, clearly on a par with The Silence of the Lambs."

-- John Douglas, former chief of the FBI's Investigative Support Unit

Review:

A ruthless serial killer is running rampant across the country, terrorizing towns and tearing the tongues out of his hapless victims. Even more disturbing are the notes received by a young Miami crime reporter seemingly foretelling the atrocious deeds. Whether the sender is the killer or a psychic remains unresolved for a time until the crime spree escalates to include violent deaths by shark attack and an encounter with a hungry python. The drama intensifies when all the key players are led to a cruise ship and held hostage by a surprising hijacker.
