Description

"A thoroughly riveting two-novel debut introducing a compelling new hero," says JAMES PATTERSON

On the morning of July 12, 2017, the FBI Boston field office receives what appears to be a hoax call: a man rescued from the waters off Massachusetts has claimed that his sailboat was hijacked and used to smuggle weapons and terrorists into the United States. With local agents tasked to prepare for an evening Presidential visit to downtown Boston, and with procedures requiring a response to any threat, no matter how unreliable it may seem, FBI administrative staffer Ben Porter is dispatched to investigate the call. Can Ben, untrained in field work and relying only his wits and intuition, uncover the deadly plot ... in time to stop it?

From Ryan Steck, THE REAL BOOK SPY: "Fast, masterfully-plotted, and rich with vibrant details-everything you want in a thriller . . . and I'll take all the Ben Porter I can get!"

    Great for a first novel. Characters are well developed and the interplay between them is realistic. I look forward to finishing the second novel.

    I haven’t been “reading” books for awhile but when I saw that this book wasn’t on audio, I took a chance and bought it. It was literally fantastic! I loved it, couldn’t put it down. Haven’t felt that way about a book in a long time! Can’t wait to read the next one!

    What a terrific book for a first time novel. Really well written, engrossing and thoroughly enjoyable. Adding Ben Porter to my list of favorite fictional characters to follow.

    It’s great to read a book where the hero isn’t some amazingly handsome guy or beautiful woman. A book that values intelligence and creative thinking over physical strength and weapons skills.
