The New York City of the not-too-distant future is a surveillance state. Thousands of video cameras are mounted on street corners and in subways, and a special corps of elite NYPD officers roam the city undercover with high-tech tranq-guns. It's the era of "PEACE," an acronym for "Police Enforced Anti-Crime Environment," and it's turned New York into a city where no crime -- from petty vandalism to first-degree murder -- goes undetected.
Enter Mac Wells, a cop whose legendary cool reserve masks a fierce loyalty to his colleagues and his city. As one of New York's elite undercover agents, he is part of a flagship anti-crime experiment that everyone wants to work. And at first glance, it seems to be doing just that -- crime is down; the citizens are happy. But strange and random acts of violence persist, in a pattern that no one can decipher. And when Mac accidentally tranqs his partner during a subway crime, he unwittingly stumbles upon a conspiracy that reaches to the highest echelons of the police department...and the government. Now Mac is forced to choose between his loyalty to his colleagues and his sense of justice -- and to figure out whom to trust before he becomes the next casualty of a tragic "accident."
P.E.A.C.E. is a heart-pounding thrill ride that signals the debut of a potent new voice in the thriller genre. Breathlessly original, P.E.A.C.E. launches the dazzling career of a writer destined to rank alongside Ed McBain and David Baldacci.
