Summary
  • A tantalizing thriller about a lethal pairing of two sociopaths who escape detection, in part because they don't fit the serial-killer bill. "David Wiltse is remorselessly skillful in capturing and holding our complete and breathless attention," said The New York Times Book Review about Prayer for the Dead, the author's first novel featuring former FBI agent John Becker. Now Wiltse brings Becker back in a thriller that breaks all the rules and takes the reader to the
  • edge. The Edge of Sleep reunites John Becker with FBI agent Karen Crist, his former protegee and ex-lover. Crist is at her wit's end: little boys are disappearing, only to turn up murdered at an alarming - and increasing - rate. The killer is in free-fall: out of control, desperate, unchecked. What Becker and Crist don't suspect is that the murderer in no way fits the standard serial-killer profile. So even when they come face to face with the guilty, neither Becker's
  • instincts nor Crist's training puts them any closer to breaking this chilling streak of crime. Before they come close to unmasking the killer, they will themselves become not so much the hunters as all-too-easy prey. Fast-paced and hard-driving, The Edge of Sleep is a brilliant novel of the hunter and the hunted that secures Wiltse's reputation as a writer who can keep readers up all night
