Zusatztext "[A] . . . neatly rendered and readily consumed tale of suspense in which elegance counterbalances horror." —Booklist Praise for Kill and Be Killed “This is delightfully sophisticated entertainment. After Begley’s 1996 novel ‘About Schmidt,’ Albert Schmidt returned for two more novels. Jack Dana deserves another encore.” —San Francisco Chronicle “A gripping thriller filled with tension, danger, and the unknown; and written in such graceful prose, it deserves to be called a literary thriller.” —The Huffington Post “An intriguing follow-up to  Killer, Come Hither  . . . Fans of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher should enjoy Jack Dana’s adventures.” —Publishers Weekly “ Kill and Be Killed  is a humdinger. The final confrontation between Jack and Abner Brown is unforgettable.” —Southampton Press “Begley remains one of America’s most able storytellers—reliably smart, naughty and wise.” —Toronto Star Informationen zum Autor LOUIS BEGLEY's previous novels are Kill and Be Killed; Killer, Come Hither; Memories of a Marriage; Schmidt Steps Back; Matters of Honor; Shipwreck; Schmidt Delivered; Mistler's Exit; About Schmidt; As Max Saw It; The Man Who Was Late; and Wartime Lies, which won the PEN/Hemingway Award and the Irish Times/Aer Lingus International Fiction Prize. His work has been translated into fourteen languages. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Klappentext Marine-turned-novelist Jack Dana is back in Louis Begley's most intense, suspenseful, and deadly adventure yet. With the death of his nemesis, corrupt business mogul Abner Brown, retired Marine Jack Dana thought he could finally return to his peaceful career as a novelist. And after falling hard for Heidi Krohn, the glamorous high-powered lawyer who helped avenge his best friend's death, Jack is beginning to dream of starting a family of his own. But dark forces intervene to upend Jack's comfortable new life. When two of his Uncle Harry's closest friends are brutally murdered in their own home, Jack swears he will get to the bottom of what could have prompted such a vicious attack. The answers he begins to uncover are shocking. A career criminal, long hidden in the shadows of Abner Brown's organization, has gone rogue after his benefactor's death and has made it his mission to get even with the man who ruined Abner: Jack Dana. With the help of his old friends in the CIA, Jack scrambles to bring down this terrifying new threat, and when Heidi and her family are kidnapped, Jack is forced to make the most painful choice of all. In Killer's Choice, master stylist Louis Begley returns to Jack's Upper East Side millieu in full force, reprising familiar characters and introducing memorable new faces, and concluding Jack's chilling saga with his most violent crescendo to date. ...
