A thriller of the grandest sort, this breathlessly paced novel surprises the reader at every turn. For a certain sum of money, Samuel Carver will arrange a death. A ruptured gas line, an automobile crash, a fall from a window--anything can look like an accident. That all changes when a job below a bridge in Paris goes wrong, and Carver is pursued by the very forces that hired him. Carver must execute his most daring feat yet while racing above and below the streets of Paris, across Europe, and by storms at sea. Readers will thrill at Samuel Carver's violent and uncertain world.
