Thirteen bodies are found in a Louisville restaurant. When the police can find no suspect or motive, the family of one of the victims seeks the services of the enigmatic and solitary Roy Prescott, known for his ability to find people who don't want to be found. Working outside the law and willing to do what the police can't, Prescott hunts the killer, an elusive adversary who is as smart, as methodical, as deadly as he is. The only way to conduct this pursuit is to goad the killer into believing that he must kill Roy Prescott. It is a contest fought from one end of the country to the other, and both men understand that, when it's over, only one of them will be alive.

Professional reviews

"PURSUIT begins with an arresting concept: a ruthless lone wolf is brought in to track and capture an even more ruthless killer. But after a great start, the book peters out as a result of a series of unlikely events. Narrator Tom Weiner is certainly not to blame. He dus an impressive job breathing life into the stale plot. But no matter how good the reader, the story is so outrageously flawed that it can't be saved. The end is so quick and anticlimactic it's as if the author got bored with the book and just stopped writing. Pick up DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER by Jeff Lindsay to see how well a similar plot can be handled. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
