Publisher's Summary

Homicide detective Ryan Clark has a problem. A prominent businessman has been assassinated by a drive-by shooting. Two weeks earlier another man, in the same industry, was shot and killed. He suspects the assassinations are related and calls an old friend with the FBI.

When FBI profiler special agent Sean Kruger arrives at the scene of the second murder, he agrees with Clark but is hesitant to get involved. After 25 years with the FBI, he is tired of the bureaucracy and politics of the job. His constant traveling has kept him away from the woman he loves and he is contemplating retiring to start a new life with her.

A week later, while home in Kansas City, the assassin strikes again. Only this time close to where he lives and suddenly the search becomes personal. With the help of JR Diminski, the computer genius from The Fugitive's Trail, Kruger identifies a suspect and travels to Alabama for the arrest.

Politics and micromanaging complicate the situation. Kruger is ordered to wait, but disobeys and proceeds with the arrest. When everything goes horribly wrong, he is suspended by the director of the FBI.

Now outside the protection of the agency, he must decide whether to walk away from his career or put his new marriage and life in danger by pursuing the assassin. An assassin whose ultimate goal is an attack in the center of the United States. An attack that will result in more innocent casualties than 9/11.

    "Staying Strong"

    Book two in the Sean Kruger saga continues where book one left and maintains the same fast paced action and drive the author Fields is becoming noted for. I particularly enjoyed the internal conflict Kruger felt as he tried to balance his dedication to his job, the wishes and desires of his wife and his personal expectations, I am anxiously looking forward to number three.

    Books are theater of the mind and the importance of the voice narrating cannot be underestimated. Mr. McSorley's abilities in this area allows him to do much more than just read the story aloud, he provides a verbal soundtrack.

    Well done gentlemen.

    "Great read (listen)!"

    J. C. Fields and Paul J. McSorley combine to bring Sean Kruger to life. Fields paints the picture, introduces strong heroes with worthy opponents, and moves the story with crisp dialog. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am looking over my shoulder when I go out.

    Great listen! Paul S. McSorley has the voice.

    I can't wait to see the movie!

    "opie and aunt b"

    I am too jaded and nihilistic to listen to this chaste, tame 1950s-era narrative, updated with modern gadgets but stalled in time somehow. People might still believe these things and act this way, but no one I know; I suspect God and The Church will arise before the book gets halfway through, but I won't be listening . . .
