<b>In this instant #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller, John Grisham delivers a classic legal thriller—with a twist.<br /></b><br /><b>“Terrific…affecting…Grisham has done it again.”—Maureen Corrigan, <i>The Washington Post</i></b><br /> <br /><b>“A suspenseful thriller mixed with powerful themes.”—Associated Press</b><br /><br /><br />In the small Florida town of Seabrook, a young lawyer named Keith Russo was shot dead at his desk as he worked late one night. The killer left no clues. There were no witnesses, no one with a motive. But the police soon came to suspect Quincy Miller, a young black man who was once a client of Russo’s. <br /><br /> Quincy was tried, convicted, and sent to prison for life. For twenty-two years he languished in prison, maintaining his innocence.  But no one was listening.  He had no lawyer, no advocate on the outside. In desperation, he writes a letter to Guardian Ministries, a small nonprofit run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who is also an Episcopal minister.<br /><br /> Guardian accepts only a few innocence cases at a time.  Cullen Post travels the country fighting wrongful convictions and taking on clients forgotten by the system. With Quincy Miller, though, he gets far more than he bargained for. Powerful, ruthless people murdered Keith Russo, and they do not want Quincy Miller exonerated.<br /><br /> They killed one lawyer twenty-two years ago, and they will kill another without a second thought.

Then he steps off the bus to help an old man who is obviously just a victim waiting to happen. But you know what they say about good deeds. Now Reacher wants to make it right.<br /> <br />An elderly couple have made a few well-meaning mistakes, and now they owe big money to some very bad people.

<b>*<i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER*</b><br /> <br /><b>An “outstanding” (<i>Publishers Weekly</i>, 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 <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Nelson DeMille and Alex DeMille. </b><br /><br />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.

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.<br /> <br />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.<br /> <br />With ripped-from-the-headlines appeal, an exotic and dangerous locale, and the hairpin twists and inimitable humor that are signature DeMille, <i>The Deserter </i>is the first in a timely and thrilling new series from an unbeatable team of True Masters: the #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestseller Nelson DeMille and his son, award-winning screenwriter Alex DeMille.
