Summary
* NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*

An "outstanding" ( Publishers Weekly , starred review) blistering thriller featuring a brilliant and unorthodox Army investigator, his enigmatic female partner, and their hunt for the Army's most notorious--and dangerous--deserter from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille and Alex DeMille.

When Captain Kyle Mercer of the Army's elite Delta Force disappeared from his post in Afghanistan, a video released by his Taliban captors made international headlines. But circumstances were murky: Did Mercer desert before he was captured? Then a second video sent to Mercer's Army commanders leaves no doubt: the trained assassin and keeper of classified Army intelligence has willfully disappeared.

When Mercer is spotted a year later in Caracas, Venezuela, by an old Army buddy, top military brass task Scott Brodie and Maggie Taylor of the Criminal Investigation Division to fly to Venezuela and bring Mercer back to America--preferably alive. Brodie knows this is a difficult mission, made more difficult by his new partner's inexperience, by their undeniable chemistry, and by Brodie's suspicion that Maggie Taylor is reporting to the CIA.

With ripped-from-the-headlines appeal, an exotic and dangerous locale, and the hairpin twists and inimitable humor that are signature DeMille, The Deserter is the first in a timely and thrilling new series from an unbeatable team of True Masters: the #1 New York Times bestseller Nelson DeMille and his son, award-winning screenwriter Alex DeMille.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The mystery here concerns Captain Kyle Mercer, a special-ops officer in the army's Delta Force, the elite of the elite. Why has he gone rogue, deserting his post in Afghanistan and sending out grisly videos of himself beheading Taliban members? And where is this ""most infamous Army deserter since Benedict Arnold""? These are the questions put to army Criminal Investigation Division detectives Scott Brodie and Maggie Taylor, the leads in this often-dazzling and occasionally irritating collaboration between Nelson DeMille and his filmmaker son, Alex. The trail leads to Venezuela, and too much time is spent painting a sorrowful picture of this beautiful country, where ""the worst elements of humanity had defeated civilization."" For a time, the authors' jaunty, gleeful style, which seems to invite you to have as much fun reading the book as they had writing it, carries the text. But midway through comes a series of chapters that each promise confrontations and resolutions that never happen. Blessedly, an action-charged finale brings everything home. It comes with the spooky observation that a secret world is slowly taking over that other world, our world.--Don Crinklaw Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This outstanding thriller from bestseller DeMille (The Cuban Affair) and his screenwriter son centers on a search for an Army deserter who has fled to Venezuela after escaping duty in Afghanistan under strange circumstances. On the hunt for Delta Force Capt. Kyle Mercer are Scott Brodie, a hardened ex-soldier with impulsive, rogue tendencies, and Maggie Taylor, a cunning by-the-book Army cop who does her best to rein in Brodie's urges, both investigative and sexual. Brodie, the senior officer, quickly suspects his commanders aren't telling him everything about Mercer; his desertion may have less to do with disobedience than his knowing too much about military atrocities in Afghanistan. Nonetheless, Brodie and Taylor track Mercer to a jungle hideout far outside Caracas, where he's training a group of mercenaries with the apparent backing of President Maduro. In typical DeMille fashion, the last hundred pages move along like a ballistic missile, exploding in a satisfying finale on a remote airstrip. DeMille and son provide it all in this rumble through the jungle--authentic detail, lively dialogue, a vividly drawn setting, and an exhilarating plot. Agents: Jenn Joel and Sloan Harris, ICM Partners. (Oct.)"
