Publisher's Summary

When veteran NFL quarterback Noah Larson finally guides his team to the Super Bowl, his dreams - and life - are dashed when his six-year-old son is kidnapped for a unique ransom: Lose the game or his son dies. Seattle sportswriter Cal Murphy and photographer Kelly Mendoza get pulled into an FBI sting to help rescue Noah's son in Mexico. But when everything falls apart, Cal and Kelly are left to save themselves, save Noah's son, and save the Super Bowl.


What the Critics Say

"You can tell Jack knows what it's like to live in the newspaper world... and he's proven that he also can write one heck of a murder mystery. With a clever plot and characters you badly want to succeed, he is on his way to becoming a new era James Patterson." (Josh Katzowitz, NFL writer for and author of Sid Gillman: Father of the Passing Game)
"Jack's storytelling feels as natural as James Patterson's, and the short-chapter setup is the literary answer to Lay's potato chips: you just want one more and before you know it, you've gone through the whole thing." (David Bashore, The Times-News, Twin Falls, ID)

Decent book

I thought it was a good story, interesting characters, and OK narration. Not a book I would stay up late to hear what happened next...

Gripping plot was the only thing this book had going for it. There was zero character development. The use of language was mediocre (e.g., using "penultimate" when it was obvious the author actually meant "ultimate.") The narration was also subpar. Although the narrator spoke clearly, he always sounded like he was reading. Of course he WAS reading, as all narrators do, but they don't all sound like it. Save your money.
