A dangerous predator may be loose on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis...
When a midshipman plunges six stories to his death, the U.S. Naval Academy begins investigating an apparent suicide. But there's a bizarre twist: the young man's body is found wearing undergarments belonging to Midshipman Julie Markham, a senior at the academy.
Julie's father Ev, an Annapolis graduate who is now a professor there, fears his daughter will be blamed by the "Darkside"—the bureaucracy that wants to protect the academy at all costs from scandal. Then there's another death, and the beautiful grounds and impregnable traditions of Annapolis are revealed as the hiding place for a relentless predator who can no longer control an impulse to kill.
From the Inside Flap:
Oustanding Praise for P.T. Deutermann and his novels:
"A dead-on sense of place and appealing characters in tight corners...satisfying."
"Deutermann has now published seven pounding-pulsers. For this book, he was back at Dahlgren and Mahan, updating his reef points."-Baltimore Sun
"A non-stop page-turner...[an] explosive tour de force...the author exceeds his near-perfect Train Man with this ripped-from-the-headlines-plot pitting a middle-aged Rambo with a small but deadly arsenal of spy gadgets against spine-chilling villains, corrupt agency brass and powerful political forces. Deutermann never sounds a wrong note in this nonstop page-turner."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"The tale is loaded with political and bureaucratic skullduggery, and there are plenty of well-banked curves and clever twists. A solid read from an author whose own tradecraft is every bit as good as that of his characters."-Booklist
"You think you have read this before. Trust me. You haven't. And you should...a great read."
-Tribune (Greensburg, PA)
"One of the lasting conventions in thriller-writing involves putting the hero in a situation where the reader is forced to ask, 'How can he possibly get out of that?'...Deutermann... exploits that convention to the hilt in Hunting Season."-Houston Chronicle
"Enough techno and black ops to satisfy Clancy fans, enough double-dealing, back pedaling internecine treachery to keep Carre fans reading and enough plot turns and suspense to keep Crichton and Higgins Clark devotees guessing."--The Florida Times-Union
"Deutermann's previous novel, Train Man, was a marvelous, bang-up action novel...in Hunting Season he equals the thrills...Deutermann writes with authority and inventiveness. Add in top-secret gizmos, heroes meaner than villains...and you've got one of the best by one of the best at what he does." -Telegraph [Macon, GA]
"Deutermann has sold three novels to Hollywood already. They're blind if they pass on this one."-Kirkus Reviews
"Deutermann delivers his most accomplished thriller yet. Intelligent, expertly detailed and highly suspenseful."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Another solid performance from Deutermann, this time about a train-hating, vengeance-hungry madman and the FBI agents seeking to derail him. Quality entertainment: the details convince, the people are real, the plot twists legitimate."-Kirkus Reviews
"Zero Option delivers...[Deutermann] keeps his story moving briskly." -Proceedings
"Exciting, moving...a topnotch topical thriller."-Publishers Weekly
"[Deutermann] returns in top form with this gripping tale...intensely plausible entertainment."-Kirkus Reviews
"An explosive drama...Deutermann fans like myself will be thrilled to see that he keeps getting better."-Nelson Demille
"Deutermann's inside knowledge of the Navy and Pentagon politics, coupled with his likeable protagonists, make this a gripping new addition to his line of naval mysteries."
"A fine page-turner."-Library Journal
"A tight story line...An attractive combination of murder mystery and naval politics."
-The New York Times Book Review
"P.T. Deutermann has become one of our best thriller writers....A keenly entertaining, fascinating mystery."-Observer (Florida)
"Superb plotting and characterization are here, as is suspense and a clear awareness of the dangers and dalliances that can thrive in official Washington...Official Privilege is more than just a whodunit and a Navy story; it is a suspenseful indictment of power politics."-Florida-Times Union
The Edge of Honor
"One heck of an exciting voyage...P.T. Deutermann ships a reader onto the bridge in that special place-where men go down to the sea in ships...a first-rate suspense novel."-Tampa Tribune and Times
"The Edge of Honor is the rare book that addresses the complexities of war at the front and also at home. The author captures the Vietnam period and its confusion perfectly. Particularly interesting-and horrifying-is the culture depicted on the Hood, a real-life ship around which the novel is set."-The Baltimore Sun
"The Edge of Honor...is headed up the bestseller list."-The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Utterly convincing...Unlike many technothriller writers, he has a good grasp of what makes people tick as of what makes a modern warship function. Deutermann's clear mission is to picture Navy life in a depth we have not seen before, and he succeeds brilliantly. His craftsmanship is amazing."-The San Diego Union-Tribune
