Publisher's Summary

The number one priority for Bradley Reynolds of Maryland's Organized Crime Taskforce is Andre Hector Federico. The mob boss is old school - a devoted family man, treacherous as hell, and paranoid enough to have escaped Reynolds's sting. Now Reynolds has a new plan: enlist prize-winning crime novelist Alan Seybold to concoct a foolproof chapter-by-chapter scenario on how to lure Federico out of his safe zone and collar him. There's just one condition: Seybold has to play by the rules of real life. Beyond that, the king of best-selling head-turners can have all the fun he wants. But as skilled as Seybold is, even he can't foresee where this thriller is headed - or just how dangerous its plot twists can be.

So disappointed

I suppose being a "very short" story I shouldn’t have expected much. BUT being written by Jeffery Deaver I expected much more than what basically seems to be the outline for an excellent novel.
I suppose that having a narrator who seems to be merely reading a script between breaths was to be expected. Why pay for real narration with a less than stellar ‘Short Story’.
In the future I’ll stick to Deaver’s full length Novels.

Nonstop Masterful Writing and Plot

Have read/listened to all of Deaver’s books - still could not guess the ending! Masterful!!
