Abstract:

Members of the oldest law enforcement agency in the country, the U.S. Marshals were once regarded as little more than security guards. Now they're on the frontlines of law enforcement. Their mission, made famous in the 1993 film The Fugitive, is to take down hard-core felons. In Deadly Force, Carsten Stroud leads us deep into their sometimes savage, sometimes darkly humorous world. Luke Zitto was stagnating in his job with the Witness Protection Program when his wife left him for one of the white-collar felons he was protecting. Reassignment to Fugitive Operations gave Luke a new beat on some of the country's meanest streets - it gave him his war.

Now the fugitive Luke wants most is an icy and elusive criminal who raped a federal marshal, a woman Luke is close to, and may be involved in a string of other atrocities. How Luke, his colleagues, and local cops in Washington and New York pursue this man, sometimes risking their jobs in the political quicksand of the Justice Department, is a thrilling and provocative story of frustrations and hunches, finks and snitches, that leads to a tension-packed final takedown.
