Description"Daring and admirable...it's rare to find a suspense novel with the scope of well-crafted fiction...The Traveler is compulsive reading." --Chicago Tribune This suspenseful classic from John Katzenbach, now back in print, reaffirmed his status as one of the best new thriller writers on the scene. Miami detective Mercedes Barren, recovering from a traumatic shooting, has transferred to the relative quiet of the forensics department to get her life back on track. Yet this peace is put on hold when she gets a wrenching phone call: her niece has been brutally murdered. Soon she uncovers the shocking truth: the killer--a professional photographer--is engaging in "copycat" murders across the country, while forcing a young student to document every horrific crime. The woman--he calls her "Boswell"--is his stenographer of cruelty. And if she drops her pen, she'll end up being his next "subject." As her already fragile life begins to fall to pieces, Mercedes makes it her mission to track down this cold-blooded killer--even if it means enlisting the help of his brother, a psychiatrist specializing in sex offenders. But can they catch him before his camera flashes next and snuffs out another life? Unbearably suspenseful, with believable characters and dialogue second-to-none, The Traveler is pure John Katzenbach.

"A powerful, obsessive novel of murder and madness. . . . The reader is swept along by the ever-mounting horror and by characters who burn with life. . . . The Traveler is more than entertainment. It is fast moving, violent, and suspenseful."--New York Times Book Review "Daring and admirable . . . it's rare to find a suspense novel with the scope of well-crafted fiction. . . . The Traveler [is] compulsive reading."--Chicago Tribune "The Traveler is a full-blooded psychological thriller. . . . Katzenbach's attention to detail and his superb descriptive abilities make the book sizzle and crack with tension. The story sweeps to a genuinely shattering climax in a scene of devastating horror and suspense."--Washington Times Sunday Magazine "This muscular scary book seizes your interest rather than asks for it, and plunges you into the nightmare world of a crazed psychopath. . . . High-voltage crime drama."--Baltimore Daily Record "A complex story of murder and revenge. . . . It generates nail-biting suspense."--Philadelphia Inquirer "Gripping. . . . Katzenbach has the touch of a master."--Milwaukee Sentinel
