Some brief overview of this book

Six years ago, witness protection marshal Roland Larson did the unthinkable: He fell in love with a protected witness, Hope Stevens, whose testimony was to put away prominent members of the Romero crime family. When Hopes plan to cut and run is interrupted by both the government and the mob, she disappears into a new identity, taking with her not only her testimony but also a secret never shared with Larson. Larson, who has been looking for her ever since, is put back on her trail when the Romeros intercept the master WITSEC list from the Justice Department and Hope is believed to be among the first protected witnesses targeted for execution. In a series of terrifying encounters, Larson matches wits with a brutally ingenious killer whose sole target is Hope Stevens. For Larson, the stakes couldnt be higher - he must find Hope in order to protect her and simultaneously prevent the mob from auctioning off the master witness protection list - an act that will put seven thousand innocent, and not-so-innocent, lives in jeopardy.

A few words about book's author

Ridley Pearson is the author of more than two dozen novels, including the New York Times bestsellers Killer Summer, Killer View and Killer Weekend, the bestselling Lou Boldt crime series, and many books for young readers. He lives with his wife and two daughters, dividing his time between St. Louis, Missouri, and Hailey, Idaho.

Biography

Crime may not always pay, but crime fiction always sells, and Ridley Pearson is one of the stars of the genre, the kind of writer whose royalties keep his family fed and cover a few extras as well (like, say, his own airplane). Yet Pearson didnt spend his youth dreaming of bestsellerdom. His first ambition was to be a musician, and he spent most of his twenties writing and performing folk-rock songs. The idea that he might become a novelist came later. As he explained in a Barnes and Noble interview, he was reading a Robert Ludlum novel when a voice spoke up from inside me and said, I can do this. (Once he began writing and discovered firsthand the skill involved in crafting a cohesive thriller, he realized how much he had presumed!) Pearson is renowned for fast-paced, thrill-a-minute suspense novels that include a rare humanism and attention to detail (Publishers Weekly). In a Greenwich Magazine interview he called his work aerobic fiction, because I hope to get your heart pounding and get you turning pages. Entertainment Weekly dubbed him the thinking persons Robert Ludlum. As his fans know, Pearson works hard at nailing the details of forensic investigation and police procedure. In Undercurrents (the first novel in his Seattle-based Lou Boldt mystery series) his research was so thorough—he consulted an expert in oceanography—that the book helped convict an actual murderer. A Washington state prosecuting attorney happened to be reading it while working on a case similar to Pearsons fictional one: A womans body had been found in a bay, and at first it appeared that she had committed suicide by jumping off a bridge. The oceanographer mentioned in Pearsons acknowledgments was called in as an expert witness to help prove that, based on tidal currents, the woman must have been dead before the time her husband claimed to have last seen her. Due largely to the expert testimony, the victims husband was convicted of second-degree murder. Of course, theres more to a Pearson novel than research. Just what is it about Ridley Pearson that makes him the best damn thriller writer on the planet? mused Bill Ott in BookList. Weve celebrated the forensic detail, the taut plotting, the multidimensional characters, and the screw-tightening suspense, but lots of fiction writers do all that. Heres a theory: Pearson is a master at manipulating opposites. His stories are forever jumping from high concept to small scale, from positive to negative charges, manipulating our emotions and minds with their polar hip-hopping. When hes not writing, Pearson still makes music—hes the bass guitarist for the Rock Bottom Remainders, an amateur rock band made up of professional writers including Stephen King, Dave Barry, Amy Tan, and Mitch Albom (the groups motto, coined by Barry: We play music as well as Metallica writes novels). It was while Pearson was in Miami to play with the Rock Bottom Remainders that he told Barry about his idea (actually, daughter Paiges idea) for a prequel to Peter Pan. The two authors had such a good time hashing out possibilities over breakfast that Pearson asked Barry to write the book with him. Published in 2004, their clever collaboration Peter and the Starcatchers became a huge bestseller, spawning two sequels (Peter and the Shadow Thieves in 2006 and Peter and the Secret of Rundoon in 2007) and a series of spin-off childrens chapter books. Even though Pearson thoroughly enjoys crafting juvenile fiction, his adult fans need not worry that hes abandoned his high-voltage crime novels. Indeed, he has said that writing gives him the same adrenaline rush, no matter which audience he is targeting: Readers of all ages appreciate the imagination, suspense, and an impeccable eye for detail he brings to all his fiction.

Good To Know

Pearson calls himself a workaholic, not so much by desire as out of necessity, since he reserves a lot of time for his two young daughters. His hobbies, which he now defines as something you once did and no longer have the time for, include recreational tree climbing, fly-fishing, backyard volleyball, snow boarding—and, of course, bass guitar in his rock band. An avid reviser, Pearson says, Im said to have a nervous, worrying disposition, but rarely feel I live up to that description—perhaps internal calm is expressed as external nervosa. Pearson loves to travel, especially to southern France, with wife Marcelle and second child Storey, who is adopted from China. Were certain to do a good deal of international travel in the years to come. He also attends local symphony and theater. But his favorite avocation is to spend an evening around our dining table with two or three other couples. This, I feel, is where many of the worlds ills are solved, and many souls restored. Mine, especially.
