Picture this. One day a relative of your wife's shows up at your door for a visit. But what if you come home one morning and discover that the visitor has usurped your role - and your life? What if the stranger declares that he, in fact, is the husband of your wife and the father of your child? What if the man provides documentation supporting his claim that persuades the police? And, most baffling and horrifying of all, what if your own wife stands by his side in denying who you are and everything you ever were - and barring the entrance to your home to you forever? For Chris Neilson, loyal husband and gentle father, this nightmare becomes terrifyingly real the day he meets Frank Springer, a professional killer whose strength and cunning have made him one of the CIA's prime assets, and whose depravity has made him an object of fear among friends and enemies alike. Chris knows he must wrest back from Springer what is rightfully his, no matter the cost - even as he finds himself the pawn in a deadly gambit that is both sweepingly global and viciously personal in its dimensions.

Maximum velocityUser Review - Book Verdict
A psychopath with a penchant for reciting the favorite tortures of Russian tsars while preparing for his own bouts of viciousness seeks out a former lover. Married and settled deep in the Rockies, she, her new husband, and their toddler are quickly sucked into a horrid vortex where every shred of their identity has been eliminated by the invader. The young husband, guided by a true and unrelenting love, fights back with wily allies that come to include the CIA. With a last whirl at thundering Niagara Falls, this is a berserk waltz at a mad tempo in the forest of doom. Readers can do scarier things than read this book, but it will not be in the comfort of their own easy chairs. Jones (Game Running, Dutton, 1995) writes with a clear eye for characters in all their likable and detestable parts. He has a gift for pacing the action so that time seems real and presses the reader to whip urgently through the pages. This is a sure bet for suspense collections.--Barbara Conaty, Library of Congress
