Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
"I'm not going to get shot again," Chicago bounty hunter Evan Maitland tells his antique-shop partner on his way out of town to retrieve a bail-jumping killer. Right. Ex-con Thomas Hicks shot two men who were going to beat him within an inch (or less) of his life; got nabbed and arraigned; and high-tailed it out of town, leaving his bail bondsman high and dry. He's considered so dangerous that Maitland is able to double his usual percentage of the bond. A newspaper item leads him to Union City, Kan., a sleepy little burg whose police chief, Jason Bender, seems utterly indifferent to the prospect that a killer's blown into town. Maitland assumes that Bender's just looking for a bribe, but he's missing the main story. The chief has his hands full covering up a double homicide his underlings have just committed-an especially tricky job now that the sister of one of the victims has arrived on a mission to learn the truth. Intent on tying up every possible loose end, the cops plot rape and murder, dupe and waylay Maitland, hijack his prisoner and, yes, shoot at him several times until it's clear that Thomas Hicks is probably the least dangerous person in Union City. Even more tough, expertly staged action than Hunt's strong debut (Maitland, 2005). The pace lags only during rare moments when the characters stop to think and feel.

    Ssuspense fans will enjoy this fine modern day High Noon thriller

    In Chicago, Charlie Mead of Mead¿s Bail and Bonds offers Evan Maitland an opportunity to make some serious money by bringing in a bail jumper former convict Thomas Hicks killed two mob enforcers in self-defense, but knowing he is at risk in jail or on the street and expecting no justice in court, he fled. Over the objections of his antiques business partner and his police officer lover, Evan begins the search, which thanks to Kansas State University NCAA basketball leads to Kansas.----- Dallas resident Nina Harrows comes to Union City, Kansas seeking to find her missing sister. Instead she is stonewalled and warned at every turn. When Nina meets Evan and Thomas, she enlists their assistance. As they work together to learn what happened to her sibling, Evan becomes convinced that Thomas is not a street punk killer involved in a bad drug deal, but instead a person trying to keep his life straight instead of fleeing again like he could, Thomas has the backs of Nina and Evan as the trio come under siege from local terror.------ Though the bad dudes are somewhat stereotyped, suspense fans will enjoy this fine modern day High Noon thriller. Maitland is terrific as he begins to understand what is important in life learning that from his two teammates as Nina refuses to back down against overwhelming odds until she finds her sister and Thomas refuses to allow his past in the slums stop him from making something of himself. The confrontation is well done with the suspense building slowly to a crescendo, but the key to the tale is the insightful look at the three amigos.----- Harriet Klausner
