9780062286833: The Ultimatum: A Jeremy Fisk Novel

Detective Jeremy Fisk tracks a serial sniper who has mastered state-of-the-art airborne technology to hunt his prey in this chilling thriller from the New York Times bestselling author and creator of the Law & Order franchise.

When a leaker named Verlyn Merritt releases sensitive documents from the NYPD Intelligence Division to WikiLeaks, some of the deadliest criminals have access to Detective Jeremy Fisk’s unlisted home address. Within hours, three mysterious assailants arrive at his Sutton Place apartment. Who are they and why do they want Fisk dead?

Authorities quickly identify and arrest Merritt. But the case takes a sinister twist when an anonymous third party makes threats if authorities don’t release Merritt immediately. Forced from his home and his bank accounts drained, Fisk confronts Chay Maryland, a reporter who has been covering Merritt’s case. Fisk wants the journalist’s help to get close to the leaker—to find out what Merritt really wants and who else is involved.

The investigation is nearly derailed when a serial sniper begins shooting people on the street who seem to have no connection to Merritt’s case. The killer’s aim is eerily accurate—and Fisk believes the shooter might be using a drone rigged with unusual sighting capabilities. Then the sniper contacts the New York Times and promises to kill one person every day, “for the greater good of the citizens of America.

With the clock ticking and millions of lives at stake, Fisk and Chay must find the mastermind before he can wreak havoc on a city paralyzed by fear.

Review:

“Wolf is not just a brilliant TV producer; he’s a fine writer, too. He keeps the pages turning and the suspense building. Exciting reading for suspense and procedural junkies.” (Wes Lukowsky, Booklist)

“Wolf . . . is in complete control. . . . His smartly drawn characters and situations lift the novel, as do the crisp chase scenes and shootouts. Another solid thriller by Wolf, who is proving as dependable a novelist as a TV producer.” (Kirkus Reviews)

From the Back Cover:

Detective Jeremy Fisk tracks a serial sniper who is terrorizing New York City with state-of-the-art airborne technology in this electrifying next novel in the New York Times bestselling series from Law & Order creator Dick Wolf

When hacker Merritt Verlyn releases sensitive documents from the NYPD Intelligence Divi-sion to WikiLeaks, some of New York City's deadliest criminals suddenly gain access to Detective Jeremy Fisk's unlisted home address. Within hours, three deadly assailants arrive at his Sutton Place apartment looking for blood.

Authorities quickly identify and arrest Verlyn, but the damage is done. Forced from his home and his bank accounts drained, Fisk confronts Chay Maryland, the beautiful New York Times reporter who has been covering Verlyn's case. Fisk wants her help to get close to the leaker—to find out what Verlyn really wants and who else is involved—but Chay refuses to yield her sources.

The investigation is nearly derailed when a series of seemingly random shootings leaves innocent people dead on the streets. A father running in Central Park and a retired math teacher searching for lost change in Battery Park are both shot and killed by an incredibly precise sniper who is never seen and leaves no traces. When the authorities receive a menacing message from someone named "Yodeler," who threatens to sacrifice a citizen every day until Verlyn is released, Fisk and Chay have no choice but to team up and discover what the leaker really knows.

With the clock ticking and millions of lives at stake, Fisk and Chay must find the mastermind before he can wreak havoc on a city paralyzed by fear. This masterful, broad-shouldered American thriller is full of swagger and surprises, and ends in a heart-stopping, highly dramatic showdown, which no suspense lover will soon forget.
