From The Bone Collector to the brand-new James Bond masterwork, “there is no thriller writer today like Jeffery Deaver”(San Jose Mercury News)!
John Pellam had a promising career as a Hollywood stuntman, until a tragedy sidetracked him. Now he’s a divorced, hard-living location scout who travels the country in search of shooting sites, and pulling his camper into any small town brings out the locals seeking their fifteen minutes of fame. But behind an idyllic locale in upstate New York is a hotbed of violence, lust, and conspiracy, and Pellam is thrust into the heart of an unfolding drama and the search for a killer when a brutal murder has him hunting down justice on behalf of a dear friend.
John Pelham and his assistant Marty enter Cleary, New York in search of the perfect backdrop for a new movie. As they snap photos and get to know the town, someone begins encouraging them to leave town. After ignoring threatening notes and vandalism of their property, the locals resort to more violent persuasion. This backfired in more ways than one as John Pelham decides to find out who is behind the threats and why such a small town seems determined not to be in the public eye.
