One of the most riveting and powerful new voices in crime fiction, Peter Leonard delivers a razor-sharp debut thriller.



Kate McCall’s husband has been killed by her son, Luke, in a tragic bow-hunting accident. While Kate struggles with her son’s surly guilt, her first love, Jack, an ex-con, reappears, along with a crew of his former “colleagues.” While Jack must convince his partners in crime that he really did lose the heist money, his appearance sets into motion a series of events culminating in a life-and-death confrontation with a gang of killers.



Leonard displays remarkable maturity for a first-time novelist in both the plotting of the story and the language of his protagonists. The twists and turns of a love affair, an unrequited crush, and a kidnapping/extortion plot complement a tightly drawn, intimate cast of memorably quick and dim-witted characters.



Quiver marks the breakthrough of a new force in thriller writing---an explosive and unforgettable debut.



Advance Praise for Quiver:



“With its clever plotting and blood-and-guts characters, Quiver will certainly put Peter Leonard on the map. This is the start of something special.”



---Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author of The Overlook



Quiver’s supercharged plot, rhythmic dialogue, and cool-under-pressure characters kept me reading into the night. An impressive, exciting debut from Peter Leonard.”



---George Pelecanos, New York Times bestselling author of The Night Gardener
