The sensation of the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair: a stunningly dark first novel that is sure to become a major publishing event. When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from Jack. Only thirty or so people are sure this man exists, some believe hes dead, and none know anything at all about his true identity. Those are closely guarded trade secrets, to say the least, for an exceptionally trained, experienced, and talented criminal. But as he struggles to clean up the mess left in the wake of the bungled Atlantic City heist, he finds himself increasingly more visible as hes pursued simultaneously by the FBI and other interested, if mysteriously elusive, parties--a situation that requires every gram of his skill, ingenuity, and self-protective instincts, especially when offense and defense become meaningless terms. From its opening pages, Ghostman effortlessly pulls the reader into Jacks refined and peculiar world--and the sophisticated shadowboxing only grows more powerfully intense as the novel moves toward its inexorable conclusion.
