THE CHESSMAN by HWA Member Jeffrey B. Burton
Author: Jeffrey B. Burton
Hidden forces are willing to kill any and all who stand in the way of untold billions. To toss the authorities off track, they borrow the modus operandi of a brutal serial killer The Chessman who stalked the corridors of power in Washington, D.C. some years earlier. The ruse is working brilliantly except for one minor detail. The real Chessman is not pleased not pleased one iota that someone has stolen his M.O. Enter Drew Cady, ex-FBI agent, who finds himself being sucked back into the very case that almost took his life, a case that crippled him both physically and emotionally. By capturing The Chessman and his blood-spattered copycat, Cady has a last shot at redemption. If he can find a way to survive, that is.
Burton delivers an outstanding serial killer thriller that will impress even seasoned practitioners of this subgenre. Whether or not Cady returns in another book, Burton has established himself as someone definitely to watch. —Publishers Weekly (A Starred Review)
