Fantastic! As good as Grisham any day. I could not put it down. The characters are larger than life and, at the same time, believable. The writing is exciting and the violent scenes ,while graphic, are not gratuitous. A really great book.

A former prosecuter on the rise, Tom Redmon is today a low-rent attorney mired in unwinnable cases and an alcoholic haze. No one believes him except his daughter, Jane, a Washington Post reporter, and his one friend, reformed biker and P.I. Mike Tubbs. Then suddenly Redmon gets the ultimate wake-up call: his daughter is gone- kidnapped. Jumping into his old pickup with Tubbs, Redmon burns rubber on a frantic search that will take him into the labyrinth that is Washington... and dangerously close to the line that separates right from wrong. There's no time for mistakes: as and ex-cop, knows that victims have only 2 days to be rescued before they're found dead.

As a child, Jane Redmon heard the name Gleason in hushed whispers around her upstate New York home but never knew why. Now, a fearless Washington Post reporter digging into a corruption case, she discovers the truth: Twenty years ago, before he became a senator, a yound Michael Gleason ruined the career and life of her father, Tom, a public prosecutor on the rise.
Today Tom Redmon has bottomed out as a low-rent attorney living in an alcoholic fog and a crumbling house overlooking a lake.
Then Jane disappears.
Redmon sets out to find Jane, and discovers that she was last seen following a handsome attorney with sharp green eyes who promised secret files filled with the stuff Pulitzers are made of. Tom knows that the first 48 hours are critical. The tail becomes twisted as he travels 500 miles north, to a remote island in New York State where Jane has either fallen in love or is about to lose her life.
Another one of my favorite authors.
