From the Author
Coleknows Kate Marlowe is trouble. Two thugshave already visited his office and beat him up, warning him to stay away fromher or else. But when the divorced legalsecretary from Houston shows up shortly thereafter- "Blonde hair and long legswas all he could see. That was enough"- Cole decides to hear what she has tosay; he's almost immediately hooked. He has an obsession with the JFKassassination-his father was in Dealey Plaza back on November 22, 1963, and wasallegedly hit with a stray bullet. Cole even wrote a controversial book aboutthe assassination. So when Marlowe tells him that she has the actual rifle thatkilled the president and she now wants nothing more than to prove there was agrand-scale conspiracy, Cole agrees to help. The weapon is hidden on a remoteranch in southern Arizona; all they have to do is find it. But there are thosewho will do anything to keep the truth from being revealed-even if it meansmass murder. Although the duo's relentlessly paced quest is daunting, not tomention historically monumental, Brandon adds gritty humor to counterbalancethe thematic gravity. A thug, for instance, is described as "an ethnic mix,maybe half-Asian and half-Rottweiler." Ultimately, this tightly plotted,action-packed thriller will appeal to crime-fiction aficionados, fans ofmainstream thrillers and conspiracy theorists in particular. A cast ofbrilliantly developed characters, intriguing speculation and bombshell plottwists will keep readers turning the pages until the very end of this starklyrealistic, desert-hot thrill ride.
Sexy,savvy and utterly satisfying.
