Meanwhile, from the shadows, an illiterate and childlike giant isolated from society watches and waits, choosing the right young girl for his plans. But when he mistakenly takes the daughter of Luther Boyd, a tough ex-cop and one-time Army officer, the killer has met his match.
As the clock runs down, the search intensifies into a savage, fast-paced manhunt through the gritty streets of New York City.
"Night of the Juggler coils into a tight knot of suspense and shatters every nerve in your body when it explodes....Brutally realistic, McGivern's novel...easily qualifies as the literary knockout of the year." (Cleveland Press)
