The return of Aaron Stampler!
The second book with the bad guy Stampler in it. Again like the first book "Show of Evil" there are a lot of players. I sometimes had to go back a bit to remind myself who was who. But I love the evil Stampler and had to see what happened. Despite all the characters to keep track of the book is fast paced, full of action, and with Stampler as the bad guy, full of evil.
After an ultra-right-wing militia seizes truckloads of highly volatile weapons, the president turns to Illinois attorney general Martin Vail. His job: nail the terorists in their tracks. Vail plunges into his new, near-impossible mission, one that soon explodes into a personal nightmare as his most chilling adversary, Aaron Stampler, returns - seemingly from the dead - to exact a vengeance that could bring Vail to his knees...

A different type of Martin Vail book - but Aaron Stampler is back.
Very good read. Aaron Stampler returns with a vengence.
Book 3 in this series. It ended very good.
Martin Vail is now Attorney general and he finds himself attempting to nail terrorists seizing volatile weapons. Aaron Stampler reappears with a new identity. Excellent.
Don't judge this book by it's cover art or title .... it's a fascinating page-turner.
The nation is siezed by fear. A terrorist attack on a military convoy leaves scores of soldiers dead as truckloads of highly volatile weapons fall into the hands of an ultra-right-wing milita. A fanatic snake-handling preacher known only as Brother Transgressor joins forces with the radical group, adding fuel to the fire. No one knows who this mysterious figure is or where he came from, but few can resist his ardent convictions-or see that his persuasive ways conceal his own dark secrets and sinister agenda. Having just won a landmark conviction, Martin Vail-now illinois attorney general-has risen to national prominence. His bravado and cunning reputation catch the attention of the Oval Office. The President demands swift legal action against the milita and turns to Vail, naming him assistant attorney general to the United States. His job:nail the terrorists in their tracks. Still hungry as ever to make up for the fatal mistakes he made years ago, Vail plunges into his new, near-impossible mission, one that soon explodes into a personal nightmare, as his most chilling adversary, Aaron Stampler, returns-seemingly from the dead-to enact a vengeance that might bring Vail to his knees.
