Based on a review by Amazon reviewer Tom McGee, I contacted the author and received a reviewer copy. I was not disappointed. This is one of the best thrillers I have read in a long time! The book held me from the first page on and I did not want to put it down.
Tony Sarno is up to something "unscrupulous" when he is nabbed by the police. He had some ilicit materials in an email that was accessed via his cellphone. He has a counselor appointed to him (Jerry Hanson) and though Jerry feels nothing is quite right with Sarno, he agrees to represent him. Strange things happen at the beginning of Sarno's trial and the judge seems to mess up the case.
Later on Jonathan Allen, whose wife was recently murdered, then learns that his young son has been kidnapped. Desperate he goes to the police but the police are stumped and even with the help of the FBI, are without a single clue.
The author does a great job of building up suspense and keeping the reader guessing throughout. There were a couple of instances where the author maybe went a little bit overboard describing some scenes and maybe used two to three pages to discuss what have been said in a page. This by no means takes away from the effectiveness of his crisp writing. He even builds up a nice relationship between the local detective (Munoz) and the FBI agent (Walker).
