Martin Fletcher wants revenge...and knows how to take it. Once an elite, drug strike force agent, Fletcher was framed by colleagues who knew he was feeding information to the drug cartels--framed and sent to prison. Vowing revenge, he escaped and began to kill, one by one, the families of those he blamed. And the man he blames most is Paul Masterson.
Once Paul Masterson was the best at what he did. Then two young agents were killed saving his life in a drug raid that left Paul maimed and half-blinded. Shattered by guilt, he left his job and family for the mountains of Montana, where he has lived in his own prison of silence.
Now the family Paul has not seen in six years is Martin Fletcher's final target--the last family. And Paul Masterson, who for six years has lacked the courage to see the people he loves most in the world, must face them again. He must create a foolproof safety net around their New Orleans home--all the while using his wife and children to lure an inhuman predator. And to prevail he must rediscover the fierce instinct to survive that once made him Martin Fletcher's match.

Review:

The best thing about John Ramsey Miller's compulsively readable debut thriller is his villain, a former Drug Enforcement Agency hotshot named Martin Fletcher. Thinking he was betrayed by his colleagues in a raid that went disastrously wrong, the brilliant Fletcher takes his revenge against them by attacking their families. Now it's the turn of Paul Masterson, half-blinded in the same ambush, hiding out in Montana until Fletcher's mad rage forces him to gather up his old skills and go on the attack.

From the Publisher:

Martin Fletcher wants revenge ... and he knows how to take it. Once an elite drug strike force agent, Fletcher was framed and sent to prison by colleagues who knew he was feeding information to the drug cartels. Vowing revenge, he escaped, and began to kill, one by one, the families of those he blamed. And the man he blamed most was Paul Masterson.

Once Paul Masterson was the best at what he did--until two young agents were killed saving his life in a drug raid that left him maimed and almost blind. Devastated by guilt, he fled his job and family for the mountains of Montana, where he secluded himself in a prison of silence.

Now the family Paul has not seen in six years is Martin Fletcher's final target--the last family. And Paul Masterson, who for six years has lacked the courage to see the people he loves most in the world, must face them again. He must create a foolproof safety net around their New Orleans home--all the while using his wife and children to lure an inhuman predator. And to prevail he must rediscover the fierce in- stinct to survive that once made him Martin Fletcher's match.

From its terrifying opening scene atop a Tennessee mountain to a heart-in-your-mouth climax on Lake Pontchartrain, this is four-star entertainment. Copyright 1996 by John Ramsey Miller.
