About this title


In Thomas Perry’s Edgar-winning debut The Butcher’s Boy, a professional killer betrayed by the Mafia leaves countless mobsters dead and then disappears. Justice Department official Elizabeth Waring is the only one who believes he ever existed. Many years later, the Butcher’s Boy finds his peaceful life threatened when a Mafia hit team finally catches up with him. He knows they won’t stop coming and decides to take the fight to their door. 

Soon Waring, now high up in the Organized Crime Division of the Justice Department, receives a surprise latenight visit from the Butcher’s Boy. Knowing she keeps track of the Mafia, he asks her whom his attackers worked for, offering information that will help her crack an unsolved murder in return. So begins a new assault on organized crime and an uneasy alliance between opposite sides of the law. As the Butcher’s Boy works his way ever closer to his quarry in an effort to protect his new way of life, Waring is in a race against time, either to convince him to become a protected informant—or to take him out of commission for good.

From the Back Cover:

The Butcher’s Boy is back for another one-man war against the Mafia.

Praise for Strip

"Thomas Perry, that smiling sadist who gets his kicks from outfoxing readers, is at his wicked best in Strip." — Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

Praise for Runner

"Perry is a master of suspense, knowing just when to switch viewpoints and how to pace the action to keep the tension high throughout." — Associated Press

Praise for Fidelity

"A coolly cerebral Perry puzzle . . . [Fidelity] rivets attention, races fast and displays distinctive Perry hallmarks, especially in its standoffs." — Janet Maslin, New York Times

Praise for Silence

"Intriguing . . . Filled with the same dark humor that has been the author’s trademark since his Edgar-winning debut, The Butcher’s Boy." — Denver Post
