Master stylist Louis Begley continues the story of Jack Dana, the Marine Corps officer turned novelist whose quest to avenge his murdered uncle now takes a new, more dangerous turn.
“Fans of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher should enjoy Jack Dana’s adventures.”—Publishers Weekly
Uncle Harry’s killer is dead. Jack finds refuge on Torcello, a small island in the Venetian lagoon, and resumes his writing career. He hopes to win back Kerry, the beautiful lawyer who, repelled by Jack’s violence, threw him over. But events beyond Jack’s control intervene: Kerry loses her life in circumstances that contradict everything Jack thinks he knew about her.
Soon death begins to stalk Jack himself, and in its drumbeat he recognizes the machinations of Abner Brown, the man who orchestrated Harry’s demise. Driven by cold rage, Jack fights back. At his side is Kerry’s best friend, the glamorous and enigmatic Heidi Krohn. Their quest will force Jack to plumb the abyss of depravity into which Kerry had sunk and face a fellow marine with a grudge of his own. Reprising memorable characters from Killer, Come Hither, and introducing sinister new ones, Begley concludes Jack’s harrowing vendetta with one last shocking twist.
Look for all of Louis Begley’s gripping Jack Dana thrillers:
KILLER, COME HITHER • KILL AND BE KILLED • KILLER’S CHOICE
Begley's intriguing follow-up to 2015's Killer, Come Hither pits Jack Dana, a former Marine, against Texas billionaire Abner Brown, the villain who murdered Dana's beloved uncle in the previous book. Now a successful novelist, Dana is living in Venice after a breakup with his lover, Kerry Black, but an attack on Dana and news of Kerry's death send him back to New York City, where he receives further threats. From Kerry's closest friend, lawyer Heidi Krohn, Dana learns that Kerry had damning evidence against Brown, and with Kerry dead, Brown thinks Dana may have the evidence. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues with Brown sending his people after Dana and those dear to him. Fortunately, Dana can turn to friends such as Scott Prentice of the CIA and former FBI agent Martin Sweeney in the fight against the seemingly invulnerable Brown. Fans of Lee Child's Jack Reacher should enjoy Jack Dana's adventures.
