His actions attract the attention of police specialists who watch the world of organized crime, but though everyone knows that something big is going on, only Elizabeth Waring, a bright young analyst in the Justice Department, works her way closer to the truth, and to the frightening man behind it.Praise for The Butcher's Boy"A stunning debut . . . a brilliantly plotted thriller."The Washington Post"A shrewdly planned and executed thriller."The New York Times Book Review"Thomas Perry has hit the mark."Houston Chronicle"Totally enthralling."The New Yorker
