Detective Jeremy Fisk tracks a serial sniper who has mastered state-of-the-art airborne technology to hunt his prey in this chilling thriller from the New York Times best-selling author and creator of the Law and Order franchise.
When a leaker named Verlyn Merritt releases sensitive documents from the NYPD Intelligence Division to WikiLeaks, some of the deadliest criminals have access to Detective Jeremy Fisk's unlisted home address. Within hours three mysterious assailants arrive at his Sutton Place apartment. Who are they, and why do they want Fisk dead?
Authorities quickly identify and arrest Merritt. But the case takes a sinister twist when an anonymous third party makes threats if authorities don't release Merritt immediately. Forced from his home and his bank accounts drained, Fisk confronts Chay Maryland, a reporter who has been covering Merritt's case. Fisk wants the journalist's help to get close to the leaker - to find out what Merritt really wants and who else is involved.
The investigation is nearly derailed when a serial sniper begins shooting people on the street who seem to have no connection to Merritt's case. The killer's aim is eerily accurate - and Fisk believes the shooter might be using a drone rigged with unusual sighting capabilities. Then the sniper contacts the New York Times and promises to kill one person every day "for the greater good of the citizens of America".
With the clock ticking and millions of lives at stake, Fisk and Chay must find the mastermind before he can wreak havoc on a city paralyzed by fear.

Strong Performance; Likable Characters; So-So Plot
The most striking thing about this book was the continued good performance by Peter Ganim, Dick Wolf has a franchise worthy character in Jeremy Fisk but I believe the supporting characters need to be richer, more developed.
While the story spun around current events and concerns, it seemed rushed and disjointed. Moreover, Fisk's latest love interest was a little cliché. Though this latest Fisk installment wasn't my favorite, I did enjoy the audiobook.

Similar to Radiant Angel this thriller deals with attacks on NYC. Good narrator , obligatory romantic interest , informative descriptions of the threat drones could impose on our lives.
