For computer programmer Mike Braker it had been a bad year. With his wife gone and his drinking problem getting worse, all he wanted to do was hide from his problems. Running away was all he had done throughout his life. Mike Braker's year was going to get a whole lot worse. He was about to come up against a problem from which there would be no hiding. He was about to meet Sean Crane.
Crane was cool, meticulous and unrelenting in his ruthlessness. It was these qualities that over the years had made him a top assassin, but as the years took their toll his nerves were beginning to show. When Braker starts to uncover an intricate computer fraud, he is pitted against Crane's professional skills. Their battle begins in Spain, continues in England, New Orleans and Orlando, reaching its climax in New York at the height of the Independence Day fireworks display. With $7.5 million diverted to a hidden account, the line between hunter and hunted becomes blurred. The ultimate race against time to halt a multiple assassination and expose the fraud holds an intriguing triple-twist ending that is sure to keep the pages turning.

This book held my interest to the point where my only critisim is that there was not a good place to put it down!! The clarity of the decriptions of New Orleans made me wish to be there and you could easily visualise where the characters were at any point - brilliant. The fast paced action kept you guessing as to what was going to happen next and never let you down! I, and others, are looking forward to the next book by this author with great anticipation.
I cannot recommend this book enough. From the first page it is very well written, with a good sense of reality and believability. The characters are strong and the story line interesting and understandable. The subtle twists during the book culminate in a triple twist at the end that keeps you hanging on to the last word. Steve Smith's debut novel proves that he is a fine storyteller and I am sure this book would make an excellent film.
