Justice has become a distant ideal for disenchanted FBI agent Jack Kincade. Once a bright light in the Bureau, he lives in a seedy motel room with his loyal border collie, his off-duty hours dominated by alcohol-fueled hazes and an unusual sidelight: robbing banks. Then he gets a call about a cold case: A three-year-old unsolved kidnapping becomes hot again when the victim's father places an 800-pound explosive under Chicago's Cook County jail and threatens detonation if his daughter isn't found.
Welcome to today's FBI, where crime fighting takes a backseat to brown-nosing and backbiting - unless you happen to be Special Agent Mike Devlin. A streetwise veteran of Detroit's downtown war zone, Devlin plays to win - and he plays by his own rules...which is why he's now assigned to the Bureau's version of Siberia, midnight wiretap duty. But you can't keep a good man down for long.

In The Führer's Reserve, Paul Lindsay weaves a tale of high stakes art smuggling, vicious homicides, and brilliant investigative prowess. Are Hitler's stolen masterpieces really hidden somewhere in Illinois? Could a secret Nazi sympathizer, known only as der Kurator, actually sell these works of art to finance a new Fascist movement? Can agent Taz Fallon, working with a beautiful young art historian, risk destroying Rembrandts, Titians, Vermeers, and countless other treasures to stop a Nazi coup?
