Publisher Description

Military cop Scott Brodie is the guy you send in when the other guys can't solve a case. Now he's on the hunt for a dangerous ex-Delta Force deserter named Kyle Mercer, and may have met his match.

***The brand new novel from America's Greatest Living Thriller Writer.***

When Delta Force Captain Kyle Mercer disappeared from his post in Afghanistan, a video released by his Taliban captors made international headlines. But circumstances were murky: Did Mercer desert before he was captured? Then a second video sent to Mercer's Army commanders leaves no doubt: the trained assassin and keeper of classified Army intelligence has willfully disappeared.

When Mercer is spotted a year later in Caracas, Venezuela, top military brass task Scott Brodie and Maggie Taylor of the Criminal Investigation Division to fly to Venezuela and bring Mercer back to America-dead or alive. Brodie knows this is a difficult mission, made more difficult by his new partner's inexperience and by his suspicion that Maggie Taylor is reporting to the CIA.

Tense, exotic and inspired by a real-life story, the new thriller from number one New York Times bestseller Nelson DeMille and his son, screenwriter Alex DeMille is an absolute must read.

The Deserter - not up to usual standard

I have always really loved NDM’s books with 2 exceptions - Up Country and this one, The Deserter.
It seemed that the body of this book was mostly no action, and repetitive conversations and observations by the 2 main characters. When there was finally some interest and action in the final pages, the main character makes an altogether stupid decision with the outcome being absolutely predictable - leaving one to query why someone so bright couldn’t see the ambush coming. Hopefully NDM is his usual brilliant and creative self next time around.
