About this title

Synopsis:

In the shadowy world of hitmen, one man stands alone...

He calls himself Columbus, and over the last ten years he has become one of the most feared and respected hitmen in the criminal underworld. He's proved his merit often, usually with a Glock semiautomatic, but also with his bare hands, the heel of a shoe, knives, even a sewing machine. He is the consummate assassin, at the top of his game, immune to the psychological strains of his chosen profession. He is what the Russians call a Silver Bear.

He never knew his father or his mother, a prostitute who became dangerously involved back in the seventies with an earnest young congressman named Abe Mann, then a rising star in the Democratic Party. The magnetic Abe Mann is now running for the Democratic nomination in an exhausting presidential campaign, weaving his way across the United States.

Columbus is not far behind. But as the Silver Bear closes in on perhaps his most important mark, the underworld he has ruled for so long begins to crumble around him...

Review:

Highlights of Haas's cinematic thriller include a cross-country junket, quick reversals, lightning violence and a surprising denouement...Lean work, with every word counting and adding up to more than most authors land in twice the space (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

Well written, fast-paced, and engaging...a thrilling account of a professional killer at his peak...The cross-country hunt is a fast read; fans of James Patterson and Jeffrey Deaver will enjoy (Library Journal)
