THE MIDNIGHT CLUB
In his most adventurous thriller yet, best-selling, award-winning author James Patterson has created a story of gripping intensity and a character of unforgettable sensitivity and honor.
A power struggle is raging at a white heat inside the Midnight Club, the elite, ruthless upper crust of international crime lords who pose as establishment businessmen. At the core of this inferno are two men sworn to destroy each other: Alexandre St.-Germain, the most insidious of these outlaws, and John Stefanovitch, a tough, streetwise New York cop sentenced to life in a wheelchair after St.-Germain killed his wife and left him for dead.
Now "Stef" is back, crippled but passionately determined — for more than his professional life is at stake. He is conducting a personal vendetta in order to see justice done, and this means, despite the odds, hunting down the megalomaniacal St.-Germain.
Complicating Stef's pursuit, however, are the mysterious assassinations of Midnight Club members. From an elite Manhattan call-girl establishment to a trendy downtown nightclub and casinos in Atlantic City, violent, anonymous attacks are being made on these kingpins, who have thought themselves untouchable. Who the next victim will be is anyone's guess in this bloody, amoral world where it is impossible to tell right from wrong, friend from enemy.
As the tension mounts, stef is aided in his quest by Isiah Parker, a Harlem cop with obsessions of his own, and Sarah McGinniss, a talented journalist investigating the Mid-night Club.
The Midnight Club is breathlessly plotted and brims with an unrelenting sense of danger. Readers will not only find this thriller a compelling story of love and honor, but will also be captured by a memorable profile of a magnetic cop with a rare and special courage.
James Patterson won the Mystery Writers of America Edgar Award for The Thomas Berryman Number. The author of several best-selling novels, Patterson is currently Chief Executive Officer of J. Walter Thompson U.S.A. advertising firm.
