NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES
A finalist for the Barry Award for Best Thriller
To all appearances, Dan Chase is a harmless retiree in Vermont with two big dogs and a grown daughter with a
life of her own. But most sixty-year-old widowers don’t have multiple drivers’ licenses, savings stockpiled in banks across the country and two Beretta nanos stashed in the spare bedroom closet. Most have not spent decades on the run.
Now, the toppling of a Middle Eastern government suddenly makes Dan Chase, and the stunt he pulled thirty-five years ago as a young hotshot in army intelligence, a priority again. Racing across the country and beyond, Chase must reawaken his survival instincts to contend with the history he has spent his adult life trying to escape, coming face to face with an army veteran-turned-agent who plays the game just as he once did.
Edgar Award-winning author Thomas Perry writes thrillers that move 'almost faster than a speeding bullet’ (Wall Street Journal) and The Old Man is no exception.
