This instant New York Times bestseller and “outstanding” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) thriller features a brilliant and unorthodox Army investigator, his enigmatic female partner, and their hunt for the Army’s most notorious—and dangerous—deserter.

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 disappeared.

When Mercer is spotted a year later in Caracas, Venezuela, top military brass task Scott Brodie and Maggie Taylor of the Criminal Investigation Division to 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.

This is got to be one of the most annoying books I have tried to read in years. The writing is unskillful, filled with trite humor and the main character’s juvenile sexual thoughts. Truly a boorish book. I was hoping early on that the main character, Brody, would be killed off to put him out of his miserable personality.

This is one the best books I’ve heard. There is no clear “good guy bad guy” here. The task of extracting Mercer seems impossible until it becomes reality. Great ending

replay of all the arguments about guerilla wars. The enemy makes their own rules but the US should stick to the Geneva Convention. Can only lead to defeat and useless loss of American lives. Get real or go home.
