An Army veteran and intelligence agent goes undercover as a janitor at a federal courthouse to pursue his own brand of justice in a thriller that’s part John Grisham, part Robert Crais.

When Paul McGrath was a young man, he rebelled against his pacifist father by becoming a stand-out Army recruit, the star of his military intelligence unit. But lingering regrets about their relationship made him return home, only to find his father dead, seemingly murdered. And when the murder trial ended in a hung jury—with just one hold-out among the jurors—something didn’t smell right to McGrath. So he put his arsenal of skills to work to find out just how corrupt the legal system was. And to keep digging, he got himself a job at the courthouse. But not as a lawyer or a clerk.

Now McGrath is a janitor. The perfect cover, it gives him security clearance and access to the entire building. No one notices him, but he notices everyone. He notices when witnesses suddenly change their stories. When jury members reverse their votes during deliberation. When armies of corporate attorneys grind down their small-time adversaries with endless tactical shenanigans. And while McGrath knows that nothing he discovers can undo his past wrongs or save his father, he finds his new position brings him something else: the chance to right current wrongs and save others. And by doing so—just maybe—to find redemption for himself.

Story Locale: New York City

UNRELIABLE NARRATOR: McGrath is plagued by guilt and other baggage from his past. Is there more to him than the anonymous, selfless avenger we see?

A HERO FOR OUR TIMES: In a world where the weasels of Wall Street rob the rest of us blind and never spend a day behind bars, McGrath is the perfect crusader for contemporary America.

THRILLER WRITERS LOVE ANDREW GRANT: Harlan Coben called one of Grant’s previous novels, RUN, “breathtakingly fast-paced.” Robert Crais hailed it as “a perfect thriller.” “Relentless, twisty, and blistering-fast,” according to Sean Chercover, “it’s a book you don’t dare start at bedtime.” Bestselling superstars Joseph Finder, Chelsea Cain, Andrew Gross, and Hank Phillippi Ryan love Grant’s work.

SUSPENSE RUNS IN THE FAMILY: Andrew Grant is the brother of New York Times bestselling juggernaut Lee Child.

ANDREW GRANT was born in Birmingham, England. He attended the University of Sheffield where he studied English Literature and Drama. He has run a small, independent theatre company and worked in the telecommunications industry for fifteen years. Andrew is married to novelist Tasha Alexander, and the couple lives on a wildlife preserve in Wyoming.
