Publisher's Summary

In the lobby of a prestigious Wall Street investment firm, one man is dead and another seriously injured. The man accused of the crime is now a fugitive.

When the Director of the FBI personally orders Special Agent Sean Kruger to New York City to find the fugitive, Kruger questions the reason. Told to shut up and do his job, he starts looking into the case. What he finds is troubling. Eyewitness accounts seem contrived with little variance between individual testimonies. The more he hears, the more he feels someone is manipulating the story.

As the investigation unfolds, he discovers the only information known about the fugitive is a HR file from a former employer. Public records of the man do not exist.

The fugitive is a ghost. A ghost who has disappeared.

When Kruger unearths information the investment firm lied about the incident in the lobby, he learns there is a possibility the fugitive was defending himself. He also discovers another individual is searching for the fugitive. An individual who has no interest in allowing the truth to be discovered.

When the cat-and-mouse game turns lethal, Kruger must use all of his skills and experience to find the truth, protect the fugitive, and ultimately stay alive.

    "Outstanding job by writer and narrator"

    Enjoyed this book from start to finish. Had never read a Fields book before and can say this one will be the first of many. Great characters, story line and dialogue. Have heard McSorley's work before and once again, he's on top of his game. McSorley adds to the well written characters.

    Story
    "Could hardly pause my player, so suspenseful."

    The technical abilities and accomplishments of the computer "hacker" in this story don't come close to being realistic, requiring considerable suspension of disbelief. I'm getting used to that, though, and just accept it.

    More importantly, I could hardly pause my player to take a break. Fields paced the suspense Precisely to keep me listening.

    And I really like the characters. The romance is trite and predictable, but integral to the story.

    Paul J. McSorley delivers a very competent performance. He gives distinctive and appropriate voices to the characters, although his accents aren't always accurate. It's never difficult to follow dialog.

    I want to hear more about these characters and look forward to more in this series.

    Story
    "The Start of an Exciting Series!"

    A man escapes the grasp of two guards, killing one in the process. Killer or victim?

    FBI Special Agent, Sean Kruger, has doubts about the man’s guilt right from the start, even when witnesses begin changing their stories. As he investigates it becomes still more curious. A man with no past, the CEO of a financial corporation lying and keeping secrets, and the fact that he’s been assigned the case at all, play into this complex thriller.

    It’s always fascinating to see what hackers can do with computers. That plays out well in The Fugitive’s Trail. Technology not only offers that though. It also provides a means of following and finding nearly anyone. Sean must find the man before the others who are hunting. If he doesn’t more people will die.

    It’s a terrific story that will hold your interest throughout. The audio is very well narrated by Paul J McSorley. His voice suits Sean very well. The narrator is the same (so far) for the series. I’m so glad there are more to read already.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review. You can find my complete review on Mystery Suspense Reviews. Give this one a try. You will be glad you did.

    Story
    "Fugitive?"


    A refreshing action book with enough subplots to keep the readers interest. The book opens when a man being escorted out of the lobby of a business by two men and he realizes that all will not end well if he doesn’t get himself out the situation. He kills one and injures the other and makes his escape. Going forward we are introduced to Sean Kruger, FBI, and the chase begins in trying to locate the “fugitive”. It's never predictable, has many twist and turns and keeps you rooting for the fugitive. Great read that I could not stop listening to and I eagerly look forward to the next in the series.

    "Wow!!! What a story!"

    This book starts out with a bang! I love listening to action stories as they keep me engaged. This book hooked me from the beginning. I found the characters to be intriguing and loved the twists this story had. Both the author and narrator were new to me, and I would continue to listen to more of their works. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I do not like to give away spoilers in a review, and with that said, this book is a standalone listen and part of a series.

    "Lame story"

    The story has too many convenient coincidences to make it convincing. For me, this was made worse by the reader who employs a limited range of voices for the characters. Senior executives and lawyers all seem to speak in a similar, ponderous voice. The women sounded like a man playing a woman. I was looking for a series to listen to but will now pass on this series.
