Under Cover of Daylight
by James W. Hall
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
Book Club Edition
This is a remarkable novel of suspense, murder, and sex, irresistible in narrative force and literary quality.
At thirteen, living in the Florida Keys with foster parents who had brought him up from infancy, Thorn had discovered that when he was a baby his real parents were killed by a drunken driver who got away with it. At nineteen, Thorn had executed his own justice -- by murder. He too had gotten away with it, except in his own head. Now he is in his late thirties and has exiled himself to Key Largo. Suddenly there is murder. His foster mother is found brutally killed on her charter foshing boat, adrift, with marijuana scattered across its deck. And so it begins again for Thorn. As he edges in quietly among the suspects, camouflaged, deadly, stalking, he moves towards a final, climactic confrontation that leaves the reader breathless.
