This book was a sit on the edge of your seat and read as fast as you can. This book is especially enjoyable if you are an outdoor person or has actually climbed rock. You even appreciate more what is entailed in the details of this book. I would highly recommend it. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would....
Excellent book - FBI, rock climbing and murder - a good combination!
Good page turning thriller!
I liked this book as it kept me on the edge of my seat reading it. I have liked most of Kyle Mills books.
A nicely complicated story line. Mills kept me guessing about who was most going to benefit from the object of the story.
Abridged/4 Cassettes/Approx 6 hours.
I was with the FBI......"
Special Agent Mark Beamon has a plan. By slurring that one key word "was," he can obscure the fact that he has been suspended, and use the FBI against itself to solve the toughest, most twisted case of his career.
It's bold. It's dangerous. It's the kind of maverick operation that has made him both the bureau's best agent and its least-likely-to-succeed screw-up. And it leads to the kind of nonstop action and intrigue that has made Kyle Mills a premier name in thriller adventure writing since his debut novel, Rising Phoenix.
In Free Fall, a top-secret FBI file buried in an anonymous government warehouse is missing. Code named Prodigy, the operation was the brainchild of J. Edgar Hoover, who created it to use against his potential enemies, which encompassed everyone in Washington, from JFK to this year's presidential candidate, David Hallorin. The unlucky grad student who uncovered Prodigy is dead, and now his girlfriend is on the run, accused of a hideous murder.
The only man everyone agrees can find the young woman and turn up the explosive document is "off duty." After he revealed embarrassing government illegalities during his previous investigation, the FBI has turned on Mark Beamon and is threatening him with criminal prosecution. He knows better than anyone that this case is his last shot to save his career -- and his country.
Tracking her down will turn out to be the most demanding case Beamon's ever faced -- for the young woman is a professional rock-climber and can drop out of sight anywhere in the world. As it becomes clear that he isn't the only one looking, Beamon begins to ask himself if he might be better off failing this time. Even if he does find her and the file, who will he be able to trust when the FBI itself is under suspicion?
Free Fall takes place in the danger zone where high crimes and extreme sports clash. It's a nonstop adventure that moves from the frozen mountaintops of Wyoming to the cavernous archives of the FBI, from the siren-haunted L.A. streets to the jungles of Thailand.
Mark Beamon is playing for the highest stakes this time. If he blows this one, his career is over and his prison term begins...
