Think of a Number

A Mystery Lover's Bookshelf, April 2012

How do you stop a killer who is seemingly clairvoyant, with the apparent ability to read minds from a distance and disappear into thin air? That question plagues Dave Gurney, a retired NYPD homicide investigator who just can’t quit. Set against a deceptively placid New England background, THINK OF A NUMBER takes a party game you have undoubtedly played and utilizes it as a tool for murder in this brilliantly conceived and well-plotted novel which will leave you wanting more. John Verdon’s ability to breathe life into the driven Gurney --- and his enigmatic wife --- is an added plus.
