The Old Man by Thomas Perry (Trade Paperback)
Now an original series from FX starring Jeff Bridges, John Lithgow, and Amy Brenneman: a former CIA officer, who's living off the grid, finds himself on the run from people who want to kill him—“[a] harrowing hunt-and-hide adventure” (The New York Times Book Review).
To all appearances, Dan Chase is a harmless retiree in Vermont with two big mutts and a grown daughter he keeps in touch with by phone. But most sixty-year-old widowers don’t have multiple driver’s licenses, savings stockpiled in banks across the country, or two Beretta Nanos stashed in the spare bedroom closet. Most have not spent decades on the run.
Thirty-five years ago, as a young army intelligence hotshot, Chase was sent to Libya to covertly assist a rebel army. When the plan turned sour, Chase acted according to his conscience—and triggered consequences he never could have anticipated. To this day, someone still wants him dead. And just when he thought he was finally safe, Chase is confronted with the history he spent much of his life trying to escape.
