Riassunto: As the New York City Police continue to find the mutilated bodies of murder victims--all of whom were somehow connected to NYPD sniper Frank Keogh--the department begins to suspect that the Vietnam veteran Keogh may be the killer. Reprint. K.
From Publishers Weekly:
Stroud's first novel (after the bestselling Close Pursuit ) is a standout, with an ingenious plot, suspenseful pacing and strong, gritty dialogue. Vietnam vet Frank Keogh is a sniper in the Emergency Services Unit of the NYPD. His job is to kill gunmen who are holding hostages; accuracy and steel nerves are vital. Keogh is expert at his job, perhaps too much so. He seems to find an inordinate joy in disposing of his unsuspecting targets. When a cop with whom he has quarreled and a woman with whom he is having an affair both die violently, under gruesomely similar circumstances, a warrant is issued for Keogh's arrest. He flees, confirming his "guilt," and the story unfolds with surprises at every turn. The author evokes the shadowed world of the NYPD with cynical realism. "This is the city of the Big Fix--the whole fucking place is on the pad," one of Keogh's colleagues says. Stroud's taut descriptions of NYC neighborhoods, his portrayal of an ethnically mixed population, are right on target; his nuanced characterizations of fallible men and the women they love impart a basic credibility to this taut thriller. Film rights to 20th Century Fox.
