Thirteen bodies are found in a Louisville restaurant. When the police can find no suspect or motive, the family of one of the victims seeks the services of the enigmatic and solitary Roy Prescott, known for his ability to find people who don’t want to be found. Working outside the law and willing to do what the police can’t, Prescott hunts the killer, an elusive adversary who is as smart, as methodical, as deadly as he is. The only way to conduct this pursuit is to goad the killer into believing that he must kill Roy Prescott. It is a contest fought from one end of the country to the other, and both men understand that, when it’s over, only one of them will be alive.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Brilliant…A bona fide nail-biter…Thomas Perry’s cerebral thrillers unfold methodically, in extremely sharp focus. His attention to detail is so intense that it generates its own brand of quiet suspense.” New York Times
“Once Prescott takes the job, the novel shifts into a gear so high that putting the book aside is no longer an option…A bravura performance from one of the few crime writers who never lets you down.” Los Angeles Times
“Perry is the best suspense writer in the business…Pursuit is relentless, filled with twists and turns, that rare page-turner that keeps one reading late into the night to finish.” Boston Globe
“An elaborate cat-and-mouse game…The traps Prescott devises to catch his prey—and the ways in which Varney eludes them are fascinating.” Publishers Weekly
“Another unrelentingly suspenseful tale by the talented Perry…A compulsive page-turner populated with characters living amid the shades of gray that surround right and wrong.” Booklist
