After an early morning machinegun attack by a madman called the Digger leaves dozens dead in the Washington, D.C., subway, the mayor's office receives a message demanding twenty million dollars by midnight or more innocents will die. It is New Year's Eve, and with the ransom note as the only evidence, Special Agent Margaret Lukas calls upon retired FBI agent and the nation's premier document examiner Parker Kincaid to join the manhunt for the Digger - or for hundreds, the first moments of the new year will be their last on earth.

"Dazzling." (The New York Times)
"A screaming hit." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Outstanding, gripping, brilliant, spectacular." (Publishers Weekly)
Mr Deaver certainly is the master of twists and turns in his plots - and was surprised by most of these. An excellent book, nicely read and full of suspense. I rushed through it to find what happened, and will reread to savour it better.
