Publisher: Silverhawk Books (May 2007)

I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.


 Airline Captain Frank Braden is being stalked by unknown assailants who must arrange his death to look like a suicide or an accident before a specific deadline. He is given the choice of following his assassins demands or forfeiting his wife's life. Braden must choose between doing what ought to be done or keeping his family alive by allowing a murderous and powerful Washington VIP to escape his past.


A fast paced read, I thought the author did a good job in describing action sequences. I felt as if I was experiencing what Frank was experiencing. There were some typos, however I didn't find them distracting.  I also liked how the author weaved in historical facts in with the plot. A nice debut novel.
