Private investigator Dana Cutler and attorney Brad Miller have overcome more than a few daunting challenges and powerful enemies to see justice done. Now wicked threats old and new are about to bring them together once again.

Convicted serial killer Clarence Little has escaped from death row in Oregon, and Brad receives threatening messages in DC, where he is working for Senator Jack Carson, a high-ranking member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. A dead body, murdered according to Little’s MO, is found in the senator’s Georgetown home, and Carson has disappeared.

While Dana is in Oregon digging into Carson’s shady background, a terrorist cell is poised to destroy a packed professional football stadium in one of the biggest attacks on American soil. As the senator’s personal life begins to dovetail with the cell’s evil plan, Brad and Dana will risk it all again to uncover the truth and save their country.

    " I have to agree with the reviewer who wrote one dimensional characters. Very disappointing fast read. I think I read it in about 4 hours with breaks thrown in. Very happy it was a library book. "

    " This book wasn't bad but not really up to what I expect from Mr. Margolin. The story was decent but it felt like a quick read. Seems Mr. Margolin may be venturing into James Patterson territory. Quick easy reads without much character depth. Disappointed. "
