Mike Stewart's debut mystery was published to rare praise. "An atmospheric setting, evocative family background, a Chinese box of a plot, and a hero tough and clever enough to surprise you as much as the bad guys .... The most accomplished debut of the season," hailed Kirkus Reviews. "Mike Stewart shows a talent for evoking atmosphere that has all but vanished from thriller novels," praised The Washington Post. "AHe? finds heroism in ordinary men placed in extraordinary circumstances and evil in the seemingly banal." Now Stewart's attorney sleuth Tom McInnes pits wits against stone-cold killers who would rather commit murder than leave witnesses. When a teenage runaway she has befriended witnesses a brutal murder, Susan Fitzsimmons puts in a call to her lawyer-friend, Tom McInnes. Tom makes a cursory inquiry through the local sheriff's office, only to trigger unexpectedly swift and forceful retaliation: His office is broken into and armed gunmen lay siege to Susan's house. The situation deteriorates as Tom and those close to him stir up several hornet's nests' worth of trouble across the Florida panhandle on their way to a deadly showdown. With riveting action and perfect pacing, Mike Stewart follows through on the promise so evident in his mystery debut.
