Summary

***The first in a series from America's Greatest Living Thriller Writer.***

Military cop Scott Brodie is the guy you send in when the other guys can't solve a case. Now he's on the hunt for a dangerous ex-Delta Force deserter named Kyle Mercer, and may have met his match.

When Delta Force Captain Kyle Mercer disappeared from his post in Afghanistan, a video released by his Taliban captors made international headlines. But circumstances were murky: Did Mercer desert before he was captured? Then a second video sent to Mercer's Army commanders leaves no doubt: the trained assassin and keeper of classified Army intelligence has willfully disappeared.

When Mercer is spotted a year later in Caracas, Venezuela, top military brass task Scott Brodie and Maggie Taylor of the Criminal Investigation Division to fly to Venezuela and bring Mercer back to America-dead or alive. Brodie knows this is a difficult mission, made more difficult by his new partner's inexperience and by his suspicion that Maggie Taylor is reporting to the CIA.

Tense, exotic and inspired by a real-life story, this thriller from number one New York Times bestseller Nelson DeMille and his son, screenwriter Alex DeMille is an absolute must listen.

Critic reviews

'An outstanding thriller . . . authentic detail, lively dialogue, a vividly drawn setting, and an exhilerating plot' (Publishers Weekly)

'If you like your thrillers fast-paced, intelligent, tough and good to the last drop, The Deserter is right up your alley. An unrelenting edge-of-your-seat ride from America's foremost storyteller, and son.' (New York Journal of Books)

'The Deserter is rich with Nelson DeMille's customary dry humor, clever banter and sardonic commentary. Nelson DeMille and his son Alex have written a fast-paced, suspenseful and interesting thriller.' (Washington Times)

'With ripped-from-the-headlines appeal, an exotic and dangerous locale, and the hairpin twists and inimitable humor that are signature DeMille, The Deserter is the first in a timely and thrilling new series' (The Real Book Spy)
