From page one the reader is thrown straight in to the action as we meet Nick Horrigan being rudely awakened by the Secret Service and dragged from his apartment. The pace is relentless and gripping and we are swept along in the nightmare that Nick now finds himself in. A great plotline with plenty of twists and turns to keep you hooked until the end of this great thriller.
A good job, a decent flat in Los Angeles, a quiet life - Nick Horrigan has finally put his traumatic past behind him. Or so it seems, until a SWAT team smashes into his place in the middle of the night. Still in pajamas, he's dragged outside to a waiting helicopter. He's told that a terrorist has seized control of a nuclear power plant and is threatening to blow it up…unless he can talk to Nick.
Flown into a deadly intrigue, Nick is charged with a dangerous secret, one that will take him from the dark alleys of the city to behind the scenes of a Presidential race. As he rockets toward the truth, peeling back layer after layer of lies and deception, only one thing is certain: The long-buried secret, tied to the traumas of his own past, threatens his life at every turn.
