An Evening With

Nelson and Alex DeMille

“Outstanding…In typical DeMille fashion, the last hundred pages move along like a ballistic missile, exploding in a satisfying finale on a remote airstrip.  DeMille and son provide it all in this rumble through the jungle – authentic detail, lively dialogue, a vividly drawn setting, and an exhilarating plot.”

Meet Nelson and Alex DeMille:

 No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille is out with a military suspense thriller and a new writing partner — his son, screenwriter Alex DeMille. The Deserter features two Army investigators on the hunt in Venezuela for Kyle Mercer, a dangerous deserter who might know too much about a secret Pentagon operation. The military brass assigns Scott Brodie and Maggie Taylor of the Criminal Investigation Division to bring Mercer back to America—preferably alive. Brodie knows this is a difficult mission, made more difficult by his new partner’s inexperience, by their undeniable chemistry, and by Brodie’s suspicion that Maggie is secretly reporting to the CIA.
 
The novel pounds with ripped-from-the-headlines excitement, an exotic and dangerous locale, hairpin twists and DeMille’s trademark humor.
 
Nelson DeMille is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of 21 novels, including his most recent #1 New York Times bestseller, The Cuban Affair. Two of his novels, Mayday and Word of Honor, were made into TV movies, and The General’s Daughter was made into a major motion picture starring John Travolta and Madeleine Stowe. He has written short stories, book reviews, and articles for magazines and newspapers. He was a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army (1966-69) and saw action as an infantry platoon leader with the First Cavalry Division in Vietnam. He is also a member of Mensa, Poets & Writers, and the Authors Guild, a member and past president of the Mystery Writers of America, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, who honored him as 2015 Thriller Master of the Year. He lives on Long Island with his family.
 
Alex DeMille is a writer, director and film editor who has won multiple awards and fellowships. His film The Absence screened at dozens of festivals around the country and was awarded Best Film at Comic-Con in 2012. He edited My Nephew Emmett, nominated for an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short in 2018.
