Frank Corso and his new assistant must track a series of bombings and bank robberies across the US, in Ford's latest heart-stopping thriller. Bestselling author Frank Corso is at first reluctant to investigate the four-year-old unsolved murder of a hapless delivery driver who appeared at a bank one frigid morning in a small Pennsylvania town with a note demanding cash and a bomb locked to his body. Minutes after he left, the bomb was detonated by remote control. Coerced by his editor into probing the story further, Corso endures two attacks on his life and his curiosity is quickly sharpened - clearly someone still has something to hide. Then, only a few days later, a series of bank robberies and bombings rock the Los Angeles area...Corso and his research assistant, the attractive Chris Andriatta, are swept into the investigation by the FBI. And where the feds see nothing but the random hand of a lunatic, Corso begins to see the tracks of something more sinister, something with a message, something that he and Andriatta may inadvertently have started and which only they have the power to stop...

G. M. Ford lives in Seattle. This is his sixth novel in the internationally acclaimed Frank Corso series following, most recently, No Man's Land.From Publishers Weekly:
In the gritty sixth Frank Corso novel (after 2005's No Man's Land), Ford makes clever use of an actual 2003 unsolved case to create a pulse-pounding plot capped by a dramatic and chilling ending. Corso, an investigative journalist whose promising career was derailed by a scandal, is sent by his publisher to a small Pennsylvania town to solve an unusual cold case. In an attempted bank robbery, a seemingly innocuous local, who presented his demands for cash with a bomb strapped around his neck, died when the device exploded. Corso is uninterested in the assignment until his initial inquiries lead to attempts on his life. The case takes on a whole new dimension when similar crimes begin to occur on the West Coast, leading the federal authorities to take a keen interest in the reporter's discoveries. While the eventual revelation of the motive behind the crimes is a little disappointing, this doesn't detract from the overall impact of this well-written and paced thriller.
