San Francisco Judge Ramsey Hunt, longtime friend to FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich, is presiding over the trial of Clive and Cindy Cahill – accused in a string of murders – when the proceedings take a radical turn. Federal prosecutor Mickey O'Rourke, known for his relentless style, becomes suddenly tentative in his opening statement, leading Hunt to suspect he’s been threatened – suspicions that are all but confirmed when Hunt is shot in the back.
Savich and Sherlock receive news of the attack as an ominous note is delivered to Savich at the Hoover Building: YOU DESERVE THIS FOR WHAT YOU DID.  Security tapes fail to reveal who delivered the tapes.  Who is behind the shooting of Judge Ramsey Hunt?  Who sent the note to Savich? And what does it all mean?  Savich and Sherlock race to San Francisco to find out…watching their backs all the while.

User Review  - Goodreads

Fast read, interesting although somewhat predictable plot, excellent characterization. The books in this series always seems to be entertaining reads, primarily for the characters, for me. Read full review

Review: Backfire (FBI Thriller #16)

User Review  - Goodreads

Another Savich-Sherlock novel that holds the interest with two intertwined plots. At times confusing, but always challenging to untangle the threads of each plot. Well written, and enjoyable. Read full review
