Hard Fallby Ridley Pearson
First there was Lockerbie. Then Eurotour's Flight 1023. Now the bomber is ready to strike again! The bombing of Eurotours flight 1023 was big news. To FBI agent Cam Daggett it was more than that. It was personal. His parents and son were on that plane. And for two years he's been after the killer who did it. All he has is a name: Anthony Kort . . .and the knowledge that Kort is in the United States with a detonator no airport security can detect.
Cam's colleagues at the Bureau and his girlfriend tell him to get behind a desk, to leave the investigation to other agents. But Cam has painstakingly built a portrait of the terrorist, and he alone has a snowball's chance in hell of predicting Kort's next target. Except hell is a much kinder, gentler place than where Cam's headed into Kort's depraved world of madness and revenge.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of his books. I highly recommend rhis one.
Was my first read of Ridley Pearson. Figured I would give it a go and I was really impressed. A great stand alone title. Book was well written. Alot of suspense and twists in this book. Since reading this I have went on to read nearly all his other titles and he is hands down one of the best I have read along with Connelly. Definitely would recommend this book or any other book Ridley is a part of to folks.
