Publisher's Summary

Homicide detective Ryan Clark has a problem. A prominent businessman has been assassinated by a drive-by shooting. Two weeks earlier another man, in the same industry, was shot and killed. He suspects the assassinations are related and calls an old friend with the FBI.
When FBI profiler special agent Sean Kruger arrives at the scene of the second murder, he agrees with Clark but is hesitant to get involved. After 25 years with the FBI, he is tired of the bureaucracy and politics of the job. His constant traveling has kept him away from the woman he loves and he is contemplating retiring to start a new life with her.
A week later, while home in Kansas City, the assassin strikes again. Only this time close to where he lives and suddenly the search becomes personal. With the help of JR Diminski, the computer genius from The Fugitive's Trail, Kruger identifies a suspect and travels to Alabama for the arrest.
Politics and micromanaging complicate the situation. Kruger is ordered to wait, but disobeys and proceeds with the arrest. When everything goes horribly wrong, he is suspended by the director of the FBI.
Now outside the protection of the agency, he must decide whether to walk away from his career or put his new marriage and life in danger by pursuing the assassin. An assassin whose ultimate goal is an attack in the center of the United States. An attack that will result in more innocent casualties than 9/11.

Great Fast Pace Listen!

I loved this thrilling book. The main character in this story is Sean Kruger who was introduced in The Fugitive's Trail. This book is a standalone listen, yet has some characters from the previous book. It is not a cliffhanger. I loved how this book moved along and was also thought provoking. The author wrote such great imagery in this book and kept the twists and turns coming. The narrator added much enjoyment to this book with his various characters distinguishable voices and emotions. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. Typically I listen to romance books, but I enjoy a good thriller too. I will definitely listen to more books by both this talented author and narrator.

A 5* read/listen.

I loved this book - I couldn't imagine it to be better than book 1 but it is!!.
An FBI thriller all the way this series is at the top of the genre.
Some times a narrator becomes the voice of a book series and Paul.J McSorley has done just that - I couldn't imagine anyone else as special agent Sean Kruger.

I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and voluntarily leave this review.

Cannot recommend this book highly enough, if I could give it more stars I would.
