It's New Year's Eve, 1999, and Washington, D.C. is under siege. Early in the day, a grisly attack in the Dupont Circle Metro station leaves dozens dead and the city crippled with fear. A note delivered to the mayor's office connects the massacre to the Digger, an emotionless assassin who will wreak havoc on the capital at four-hour intervals, until midnight. Only a ransom of $20 million delivered to his accomplice -- and mastermind will end the death and terror.

But the Digger becomes a far more sinister threat when his accomplice is killed in a freak accident while en route to the money drop. With the ransom note as the single scrap of evidence, Special Agent Margaret Lukas calls upon Parker Kincaid, a retired FBI agent and the top forensic document examiner in the country. Somehow, by midnight, they must find the Digger -- before he finds them.

It's been awhile since I read anything from Deaver but was not disappointed in this work. Interesting story line with lots of twists and turns. It would make an excellent screen play for a movie. It's worth the time to read.
