Product Description

A finalist for the Barry Award for Best Thriller

To all appearances, Dan Chase is a harmless retiree in Vermont with two big mutts and a grown daughter he keeps in touch with by phone. But most sixty-year-old widowers don't have multiple driver's licenses, savings stockpiled in banks across the country, and a bugout kit with two Beretta Nanos stashed in the spare bedroom closet. Most have not spent decades on the run.

Thirty-five years ago, as a young hotshot in army intelligence, Chase was sent to Libya to covertly assist a rebel army. When the plan turned sour, Chase reacted according to his own ideas of right and wrong, triggering consequences he could never have anticipated. And someone still wants him dead because of them. Just as he had begun to think himself finally safe, Chase must reawaken his survival instincts to contend with the history he has spent his adult life trying to escape.

Armed mercenaries, spectacularly crashed cars, a precarious love interest, and an unforgettable chase scene through the snow—this is lethal plotting from one of the best in crime fiction.


"Narrator Peter Berkrot expertly reads this thriller with the appropriate clenched teeth emotion as Chase travels from Vermont to Chicago to California then to Canada. He masterfully voices all the characters. Well done; highly recommended." —Sound Commentary Starred Review

"Perry fills this standalone thriller with nonstop action . . . Reader Berkrot sets an energetic pace right from the start and, once Chase flees, both protagonist and reader put the pedal to the metal." —Publishers Weekly Audio Review

"A vivid story of intrigue evolves which comes alive under Peter Berkrot's voice." —Donovan's Literary Services

"[A] harrowing hunt-and-hide adventure . . . Nobody writes chase scenes like Perry, who devises intricate itineraries, multiple identities and frequent costume changes for Chase and Zoe McDonald." —New York Times
