A Yankee lawyer semi-retired from a prestigious New York firm. Clues hidden in a series of crossword puzzles. One of Americas leading art auction houses. Missing millions stolen from a Middle Eastern terror group. The planned assassination of Georgias senior Senator. They are all woven together in the intricately crafted and fast-moving plot of Crossword, Rawlingss fourth and arguably best novel. Matt Rutherford (of The Rutherford Cipher) finds himself dragged unwillingly into having to search for the cause of one murder which will result in his own assassination if he fails to solve the puzzle. Joining forces with the brilliant Lisa Li, the two are caught in a life and death struggle between forces of good and evil, neither of which can be trusted. As one reviewer wrote, The climaxes keep coming. Youll be on the edge of your seat until the very end.
