Overview

NY Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, former Green Beret and West Point Graduate, Bob Mayer.



Covert operative Horace Chase has been chasing ghosts his entire life.

First, his Medal-of-Honor winner father who died in Vietnam without ever meeting his son. And left him the legacy of an automatic appointment to the Military Academy at West Point which shaped the next thirty-five years of Chase's life. Then, the ghost of his mother, who died while he was at war in Afghanistan and wounded, causing him to resign his commission and return to the United States, a lost soul.



Chase now wears two hats as a Federal counter-terrorism liaison to the local police department in Boulder, Colorado where he becomes embroiled in two seemingly un-related cases. Working as a detective with Boulder PD he chases another death, this one the apparent rape/murder of Rachel Stevens, an upscale housewife attending night classes at the University of Colorado. And with his counter-terrorism team he is embroiled in a series of killings involving a militia group, a rogue ex-Special Forces officer, a psychopathic ex-CIA contract mercenary, and ruthless drug runners.



From the streets of Boulder, to the highest railroad tunnel in the world, to a swingers club hiding in plain site in suburbia, Afghanistan starts to look pretty good to Chase.

This is a complex story, and it was fascinating to see it develop. It is a mystery/thriller, but not just that; there's a boatload of excellent writing going on here, leading the reader through paths and concepts which just aren’t expected in an everyday thriller. The characters are wonderfully developed and flawed but don’t become caricatured by their flaws.  When I got to the end of the book, I felt as if I'd been surfing an avalanche and survived. This is one of the best books I've read recently. Dalice Peterson

Great book - the plot keeps changing - leads you in one direction, thinking you've figured it out. Suddenly, it turns and goes off in a new direction. Hard to put down!!
