Jericho's Fall - Stephen L. Carter

Jericho’s Fall (Knopf, $25.95), the new mystery by Stephen L. Carter, starts back when Rebecca “Beck” Deford was a sophomore at Princeton and fell in love with Jericho Ainsley, former Defense Secretary, former CIA director, former everything. It was a scandalous affair that led to their exile in Colorado. Although the romance was short lived, the relationship brings Beck back when she learns that Jericho is dying.  She’s come to say goodbye but he’s hell bent on withdrawing into what his daughters believe are paranoid delusions. From the time Beck arrives, strange things take place—a helicopter follows her, a dead dog is killed on the property—and she’s on edge. As the threats grow and suspicions take shape, Beck struggles to distinguish reality from the fantasies of a sick old man. There are more potential conspirators than you can shake a stick at, lots of plot twists—an ending you won’t expect.
