"Jake Travis is one of the best leading men to take the thriller fiction stage in years." Florida Weekly

Jake Travis is contracted by his ex-Army colonel to retrieve a missing fifty year-old Cold War letter. He quickly finds himself entwined in a world where the line between good and evil becomes increasingly blurred. The letter, written in 1961 by a CIA operative who met a mysterious demise, has ended up in the possession of Raydel Escobar, an engaging nightclub owner.

As Jake relentlessly pursues the enigmatic Escobar, he soon discovers that Escobar is involved in far more than simply blackmailing the IRS in exchange for the letter.

Assisted by his partner Garrett and neighbor Morgan, Jake turns up the heat on Escobar. Fascinated with the letter's origins and the fate of those who first touched the document, Jake will stop at no end to complete his assigned task. Set on the west coast of Florida, The Second Letter's plot twists, richly-drawn characters, and sharp, witty dialogue forge a gripping and entertaining read. Jake discovers that only by risking everything can he define himself, secure his relationship with the woman he loves, and discover the message of the second letter.
