Lisa Palmer has barely recovered from the sudden death of her husband when she is drawn into a new nightmare. On her way home from upstate New York, Lisa stops at a service center minutes before an armored car heist. Four men are executed before her eyes--one, an off-duty FBI agent she tried to help. Now Lisa is the FBI's secret witness and the key to finding the fugitive killers.

FBI agent Frank Morrow leads the investigation of the high-profile case. Hiding a very personal secret, Frank knows this assignment will be like no other he's ever faced...and it could be his last.

Pressured to land an exclusive, journalist Jack Gannon chases the elusive thread of an anonymous tipster. With every instinct telling Jack the story is within his grasp, he risks everything to reveal the chilling truth...before the cold-blooded killers can take the next step in their vengeful mission.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Mofina's strained fourth Jack Gannon thriller (after 2011's In Desperation), the $6 million robbery of an armored truck at a New Jersey highway service center and the murder of its three guards plus an FBI agent who was taken hostage put three people on the spot: widowed Lisa Palmer, a key witness to the killings; FBI agent Frank Morrow, who takes charge of the intensive manhunt; and reporter Gannon, who finds himself digging for the biggest story of his life. Meanwhile, gang leader Ivan Felk and the remnants of his black ops crew plan another robbery to get the $12 million ransom needed to save their comrades held captive in Afghanistan. When Palmer provides a clue that threatens to thwart Felk's rescue plans, Felk vows to seek vengeance if it's the last thing he does. Mofina ratchets up a dramatic if unlikely ending with an unexpected hero. Agent: AMB Literary Management. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
