The Ultimatum: A Jeremy Fisk Novel

Dick Wolf. Morrow, $27.99 (352p) ISBN 978-0-06-228683-3
In bestseller Wolf’s exciting third Jeremy Fisk novel (after 2014’s The Execution), the head of a Mexican drug cartel, angered that an attempt to kill the NYPD Intelligence Division detective has failed, calls in a master assassin to complete the job. Meanwhile, a fanatical killer using drones and calling himself Yodeler promises to kill a person a day until imprisoned whistle-blower Merritt Verlyn, who provided Intelligence Division documents to WikiLeaks, is released. The Joint Terrorism Task Force team is formed to deal with Yodeler’s threat and track down the thousands of missing documents that Verlyn stole. Fisk ends up a reluctant partner with New York Times journalist Chay Maryland, who may hold the key to the missing documents. In spite of a bewildering alphabet soup of agencies, gadgets, and systems, plus numerous subplots, Wolf keeps the story moving briskly. Fisk and Maryland make a surprisingly good team, and both play key roles in the startling ending. (June)
