Robert Mallon has lived for ten quiet years in affluent Santa Barbara, California, when an encounter on a beach with a mysterious young woman shatters his peaceful, carefully constructed life. Despite Mallon's desperate attempts, he loses her and becomes obsessed with discovering why. He hires detective Lydia Marks to uncover the secrets of this stranger's life, and what they learn propels them into a terrifying world of sinister secrets and deadly hatreds. Targeting Mallon is the master hunter Parish, a man with an expert understanding of evil who preys on rich people's desires for dominance and revenge. Mallon is drawn into a lethal struggle with this deadly adversary-and then another, and another, and another.

Professional reviews

"A millionaire, single and retired at 48, Robert Mallon seems to have it made. While walking on the beach, he sees a woman drowning and saves her. And then everything changes. The simple benevolent act leads to several attempts on his life. As Mallon tries to learn who is after him and why, Michael Kramer keeps pace, lending controlled voices to the characters. The deep, calm tone he gives Mallon reflects the character's personality. Even more controlled is the voice behind the sociopath trying to kill him. Kramer gives him a methodical, precise way of speaking that is perfectly conveys his malevolence. Secondary characters are also well differentiated. DEAD AIM is a worthy psychological chase. M.B.
