Edge by Jeffery Deaver

Blurb:
Behind the well-known U.S. security organizations-- the FBI and CIA among them--lies a heavily guarded, anonymous government agency dedicated to intelligence surveillance and to a highly specialized brand of citizen protection. Shock waves of alarm ripple through the clandestine agency when Washington, D.C., police detective Ryan Kessler inexplicably becomes the target of Henry Loving, a seasoned, ruthless "lifter" hired to obtain information using whatever means necessary. While Loving is deft at torture, his expertise lies in getting an "edge" on his victim--leverage--usually by kidnapping or threatening family until the "primary" caves under pressure.

What I loved about this book:
  • The protagonist is passionate about board games.
  • He's intelligent and can think strategically.
  • He's tough yet emotionally vulnerable.
  • Great dialogue.
  • Ever-twisting plot.
  • Fast pace.
