Jeffery Deaver: Edge (USA 2013)

From the Publisher:
Crafting a chilling mind puzzle packed with "nifty new tricks" (Publishers Weekly), Jeffery Deaver lifts the curtain of a clandestine intelligence agency, pitting two "ingenious" (Library Journal) opponents in a high-stakes volley of brilliant wits and calculated risks with deadly consequences.

Henry Loving is a lifter, hired to get information by any means -- including torture. His expertise is in getting an "edge" by kidnapping or threatening someone close to his principal, exerting pressure until they cave. When Washington, D.C., police detective Ryan Kessler inexplicably becomes Loving's target, the job of keeping Kessler's family alive falls to a senior federal protection officer named Corte, who lost a friend to Loving's ruthless machinations six years earlier. As Corte and his team race to counter Loving, the lifter moves in on his prey -- and Corte must choose between protecting his charges and exposing them to a killer in the name of long-awaited revenge.

Edge

Jeffery Deaver: Edge (USA 2010)

From the Publisher:
Behind the well-known U.S. security organizations -- the FBI and CIA among them -- lies a heavily guarded, anonymous government agency dedicated to intelligence surveillance and to a highly specialized brand of citizen protection.

Shock waves of alarm ripple through the clandestine agency when Washington, D.C., police detective Ryan Kessler inexplicably becomes the target of Henry Loving, a seasoned, ruthless "lifter" hired to obtain information using whatever means necessary. While Loving is deft at torture, his expertise lies in getting an "edge" on his victim -- leverage -- usually by kidnapping or threatening family until the "primary" caves under pressure.

The job of keeping the Kessler family alive falls to a man named Corte, a senior federal protection officer known as a "shepherd." Uncompromising, relentlessly devoted to protecting those in his care and a passionate board game aficionado, he applies brilliant gaming strategy to his work. For Corte, the reappearance of Loving -- the man who, six years earlier, had tortured and killed someone close to him -- is also an opportunity to avenge his friend's death. The assignment soon escalates into a fast-paced duel between Corte and Loving, a dangerous volley of wits and calculated risks.

As he shepherds the Kesslers to a concealed safe house, Corte must anticipate Loving's every step as the lifter moves in on his prey, and with the help of razor-sharp investigator Claire DuBois and his longtime ally, FBI agent Paul Fredericks, pinpoint which of Kessler's seemingly insignificant cases has triggered Loving's return. As the team digs deeper, each of the Kesslers comes under close scrutiny, and in captivity their family bonds are stretched to the breaking point -- as the lifter draws near, Corte must ultimately choose between protecting his charges and exposing them to a killer in the name of long-awaited revenge.
