Description
The Edgar Award–winning novel by the "master of nail-biting suspense"(Los Angeles Times) Thomas Perry exploded onto the literary scene with The Butcher's Boy. Back in print by popular demand, this spectacular debut, from a writer of "infernal ingenuity" (The New York Times Book Review), includes a new Introduction by bestselling author Michael Connelly. Murder has always been easy for the Butcher's Boy—it's what he was raised to do. But when he kills the senior senator from Colorado and arrives in Las Vegas to pick up his fee, he learns that he has become a liability to his shadowy employers. His actions attract the attention of police specialists who watch the world of organized crime, but though everyone knows that something big is going on, only Elizabeth Waring, a bright young analyst in the Justice Department, works her way closer to the truth, and to the frightening man behind it.Praise for The Butcher's Boy"A stunning debut . . . a brilliantly plotted thriller."The Washington Post"A shrewdly planned and executed thriller."The New York Times Book Review"Thomas Perry has hit the mark."Houston Chronicle"Totally enthralling."The New Yorker
