Fallback Publisher's Summary

With over 250,000 books sold, and well over 1,000 five star reviews on Amazon, the Sam Prichard series is quickly storming the charts. David Archer's ability to create exciting action and suspense is second to none. Fans can't get enough it, but don't take my word for it. See what all the fuss is about before Archer becomes a household name!

Sam Prichard was a good kid, but sometimes that isn't enough to let you miss out on the bad parts of life. Losing his father at 16 had been bad enough, but then facing the betrayal of his fiancé - a girl who had been his best friend and sweetheart for as long as he could remember - was even worse. Then, just when he thought life couldn't get worse, his lifelong dream of being a cop was blocked by a hiring freeze in his home city of Denver, Colorado.

With no other real options, Sam joined the Army and went after MP training, but even that wasn't enough to get him back into the swing of things. It was only after he got back home and finally made it onto the force that he began to feel like he might make it after all - and then he met a beautiful woman who seemed to think he was ideal.

    Sam Prichard was a cop, and a good one, until bullets took out the joint of his right hip. Now he's trying to learn to live without being a cop, getting to know his neighbors, learning to walk again and even ride a motorcycle. Life is bearable, barely, but then he gets asked to find a missing child, and the lure of getting back into some kind of police work is too much for him to resist. When he teams up with computer whiz Indiana Perkins, he suddenly becomes one of the best investigators he's ever even known.

    "Mr. Prichard," the note said, "the people you see in the photos will be killed within the next 48 hours, unless you stop me. I have been following your exploits closely, and I think that you are the one I need to make sure I stop doing this. I've been trying for more than 15 years to kick this habit, but I can't. Normally, I don't strike so many times so close together, but in order to get you interested, I'm going to up the odds. I need you to do only two things: discover who each of my victims is, and then do all you can to stop me before I can kill each one.
