Overview

Bounty hunter Rick Parker has one week to find Michael Norton and make ten thousand dollars over the premium.

Norton, a pharmaceutical company rep, hacked his company's computer system and stole the formula for a breakthrough cure of Alzheimer's disease. He put the plans on a thumb drive and tried to sell it. FBI agents arrested him but couldn't prevent him from throwing it down a storm drain when they caught him. There isn't a copy-or is there?

Norton skipped out on a bail of one million dollars and if he isn't found his beautiful wife Samantha and their daughter Emily will lose the family home. She promises to pay Parker a bonus if he catches her missing spouse and hints there may be more intangible benefits besides.

A white collar criminal should be easy to catch, but from the start ex-physician Parker encounters complications. The job was supposed to be redemption for muffing an earlier assignment. Present day events trigger long repressed memories that incapacitate him without warning. Samantha's ex-lover winds up dead in a trash chute. Parker's associate Finch gets shot and lies in a coma. After that, it gets worse.

Norton remains on the loose, but he's dangerously ill with H1N1 influenza. An unlikely pair of allies comes to his aid and plots to recover the only remaining copy of the stolen plans.

In order for Parker to succeed he needs to conquer not only his internal demons but a force more diabolical than he ever imagined.

    Really Enjoyed It--Check This One Out!

    I really enjoyed "Win or Go Home." For just 3.99 on Nook, it's definitely worth checking out.

    It's a thriller about a doctor turned bounty hunter who gets caught up in a case of stolen medical secrets. He's hired to track down the thief, but he finds himself in a web of death and seduction where things are not as they seem. As the book moves toward the climax, you aren't entirely sure who is to trust, which makes for an exciting, page-turning ending.

    Not your normal bounty hunter.

    Daniel Smith has debuted with a fantastic thriller set in the Pacific Northwest. In Win Or Go Home, we meet Rick Parker, doctor turned bounty hunter and live the story through him as he solves the case looking for a bail jumper. Parker uses, his wits, experience and relationships to track down his man.

    But there is more to the story with corporate secrets, blackmail and other twists that keep this story moving along.

    There are a couple of points where I didn't quite follow the leap to the conclusion from a clue, but other than that, Smith has crafted a thriller I enjoyed.

    Looking forward to the next in the series to see what happens to Dr. Rick Parker - Bounty Hunter, next.
