Product tampering. Innocent lives. Nice suburban homes. A Seattle food company is victim to an ingenious extortion that has the FBI two steps behind. Seattle's veteran homicide sergeant, Lou Boldt, and police psychologist Daphne Matthews approach the case from opposite ends: one undearthing micoscopic evidence, the other putting together a chilling psychological profile of a man willing to contaminate and kill if necessary.
The cop Daphne Matthews secretly loves is being destroyed by the extortion. Boldt sees his department cracking. As the high-tech manhunt builds to a furious crescendo, Boldt and Matthews are jolted again: the madman they're hunting maynot be working alone . . .

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Good story line with recurring characters.
Pearson is a talented writer. I have only read one other title of his (standalone). I decided to try one of the books that follow Det. Boldt. I was impressed. He hooks you early and never lets you go. I have read 2 others recently of his and they just keep getting better and better. I like when a book keeps you thinking about getting a few more pages in or one that keeps you in suspense and for me Pearson does that - totally.
Looking for an enjoyable, non-stop action, techno-thriller? If you are like me who didn't know where to start, try this one! I picked this book up at an airport terminal bookstore, never having read Pearson. I never expected to turn into a fan of crime fiction. But I am one now, and I am looking forward to reading other great stories from Pearson. Go for this book, and enjoy it cover to cover.
