Description

Marine-turned-novelist Jack Dana is back in Louis Begley's most intense, suspenseful, and deadly adventure yet.

With the death of his nemesis, corrupt business mogul Abner Brown, retired Marine infantry officer Jack Dana thought he could finally return to his peaceful career as a novelist. And after falling hard for Heidi Krohn, the glamorous high-powered lawyer who helped avenge his best friend's death, Jack is beginning to dream of starting a family of his own.
    But dark forces intervene to upend Jack's comfortable new life when two of his uncle Harry's closest friends are brutally murdered in their own home. Quickly it becomes clear that these murders are a message, sent by a shadowy criminal Jack comes to call "the Monster." His warning to Jack: a fate even more cruel awaits you. Indeed, despite the best-laid precautions, there seems to be no escape when Heidi and her nephew are kidnapped. With their lives in the balance, Jack must take the only step honor will allow and face the Monster alone, whatever the consequences.
     In Killer's Choice, master stylist Louis Begley returns to Jack's Upper East Side and Sag Harbor settings and concludes Jack's chilling saga with his most powerful crescendo to date.
