A former CIA officer, living off the grid, finds himself on the run in the book which forms the basis for the new Disney+ series, starring Jeff Bridges and John Lithgow.
To all appearances, Dan Chase is a harmless retiree in Vermont with two big dogs and a grown daughter with a life of her own. But most sixty-year-old widowers don´t have multiple drivers´ licenses, savings stockpiled in banks across the country and two Beretta nanos stashed in the spare bedroom closet. Most have not spent decades on the run. Now, the toppling of a Middle Eastern government suddenly makes Dan Chase and the stunt he pulled thirty-five years ago as a young hotshot in army intelligence a priority again. Racing across the country and beyond, Chase must reawaken his survival instincts to contend with the history he has spent his adult life trying to escape, coming face-to-face with an army veteran turned agent who plays the game just as he once did.
