loosely patterned on WikiLeak personage Julian Assange, is arrested and held in
jail pending trial. Then a series of sniper attacks begins, with the
continued threat of one person being killed each day until Verlyn is released
from prison. Detective Jeremy Fisk takes the lead in an effort to stop
the killer who has brought the City of New York to a standstill.
Meanwhile a Mexican cartel has placed a contract on the NYPD intelligence
detective, adding to his woes.
Thus begins an
exciting chase with plenty of action. Originally, Verlyn, who possessed
thousands of classified and sensitive documents, released a few to Chay
Maryland, an investigative reporter for the New York Times, including
Fisk’s unlisted home address, exposing him and others to vast dangers, setting
up a conflict for the need of secrecy vs. Second Amendment rights. The
question of how this will be resolved is another interesting development.
The conclusion is
far-out, more suited to a technocratic motion picture, perhaps, but makes for
more and more thrilling descriptions, a specialty of the author, the writer,
producer and creator of the TV series Law & Order. Part of a
series, the novel is a page-turning stunner, and is recommended.
