In 1992, FBI agent Paul Lindsay received commendation and a $600 incentive award from FBI director William Sessions for helping spearhead the capture of serial killer Benjamin Atkins. After writing this novel, Paul Lindsay -- a twenty-year veteran of the FBI -- became the victim of a vicious backlash. The Bureau threatened to fire Lindsay for insubordination, claiming he violated a company ban on accepting outside income. Was that the case? Or did Lindsay expose too much about an agency that likes to remain in the shadows?
Special Agent Mike Devlin is an exception to the FBI rule book. But when one too many unorthodox arrests gets him wiretap duty, Devlin gets an explosive earful: a traitor in the ranks is selling out the FBI's informants to the Mob. Yet closer to home, a fellow agent's daughter has been kidnapped, and a serial killer is the prime suspect. Now Devlin must put his career and his life in the cross-hairs of the Mafia and a maniac. But he wouldn't have it any other way.
