Synopsis: Peter Tyler seems to have it all?a beautiful and accomplished wife, a high-powered Wall Street career, a sprawling house in the suburbs. But beneath this perfect surface, things are not what they seem. Haunted by an unhappy childhood, Peter is drifting further and further from his college-sweetheart wife and her ideal of family life; eventually, confused and dissatisfied, he seeks solace in a one-night stand.
Before Peter can fully come to grips with what he?s done, his house is broken into and his wife brutally murdered. When the police discover that a mysterious package from Peter?s best friend, Andrei, is the only thing missing, they rule out random robbery. When they dig a little deeper and discover Peter?s infidelity?combined with his refusal to reveal the identity of his lover?he becomes their prime suspect. To complete the nightmare, Andrei, who might hold the key to everything, has disappeared without a trace.
Forced to run, Peter will have to question everything he has ever believed as he struggles to unravel the truth behind his wife?s murder and Andrei?s disappearance before the police catch up with him. Along the way he?ll encounter an embittered ex-cop with a taste for vengeance, a conniving pharmaceutical conglomerate, the head of an underground AIDS facility with ties to the Russian Mob, a corporate jackal bent on a swindle of epic proportions, and a spectacular act of revenge that will take your breath away.
Whip-smart, lightning-paced, and adrenaline-fueled from first to last, this is a book you won?t be able to put down until you know everything.
