Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

An expert marksman, Jackstraw also has a way with the ladies. Thrown out of West Point years ago in the midst of a scandal, he’s surprised when asked to fake the assassination of a candidate for vice president of the U.S. His gut tells him to say no. But when he meets the woman he’s supposed to shoot, he’s smitten and agrees to the plan. Of course it goes awry. Double-cross after double-cross, with lots of bodies piling up. Soon Jackstraw is the most wanted man in the country. The events that unfold are a bit hard to swallow, but focusing on Jackstraw distracts the reader from the improbabilities. Faust is a skilled writer, and he gives the story line a nice noir edge uncommon in plot-driven thrillers. Jackstraw works because the protagonist is so different from other books in the Robert Ludlum style. --Jeff Ayers

Review

"Faust writes well, with confidence and flair.” —The New York Times

"A writer of rare and uncommon talent . . . resonant, sinewy prose." —The Los Angeles Times

“A wonderful writer with a firm grip on character, setting and pace.” —The Washington Times

“Faust writes beautifully . . . reminds you of Hemingway and Peter Matthiessen.” —Booklist
