Brandon Vale is a career thief, the best there is. Of course, he is serving out a prison term for a robbery gone bad--albeit one that he didn't commit. But then he is broken out of prison against his will by Richard Scanlon, the former FBI agent who framed him in the first place. Scanlon, who still has ties to the U.S. intelligence community, has discovered that a Ukrainian crime organization is auctioning twelve nuclear warheads to the highest bidder, but he can't convince the government that the sale isn't a hoax. The only way he can get his hands on the $250 million necessary to take the warheads off the market is to arrange for Brandon to steal it.

Not that Brandon has much choice--it's either do it or go back to jail with the added years of a failed "escape" tacked on to his sentence--but he decides to get the cash by pulling off the heist he had been planning when he and Scanlon first met:hijacking the trucks that drive the casinos' cash out of Las Vegas once a week. As the day of the warhead sale approaches, though, their carefully constructed plan begins to break
down, and Brandon starts to suspect that the deal has even higher stakes than he had imagined.

With this heart-stopping,all-too-real novel, Kyle Mills proves once again that he is one of the freshest and most original thriller writers working today.

From the Back Cover:

"Edge-of-seat quotient: Sky-high."
---Entertainment Weekly

"The perfect thriller for the emerging millennium . . . What makes this novel such a delicious summer treat is the way in which Mills turns the reader's expectations inside out. . . . The twists are surprising and fun, and the story comes to a bang-up conclusion."
---Denver Post

"Mills's prose is crisp and his action skills are top-notch. In Fade, he has created a true thriller hero for the present and the immediate future."
---Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
"A thriller that manages to retain the Cold War staples readers have come to expect from the genre while remaining relevant to the post-9/11 landscape . . . this is a story for today."
---Houston Chronicle
 
"Kyle Mills is a master of the page-turner. His attention to detail and his smooth style will keep you reading well into the night."
---Vince Flynn, author of Memorial Day
 
"Lead character Salam Al Fayed---Fade---is a first-ballot certainty for the Thriller Hall of Fame."
---Lee Child, author of The Enemy
 
"Kyle Mills has created in Salam al Fayed, aka Fade, a disturbing, complex and wholly original character. Fade will stay with you long after you have finished this well-crafted thriller."
---Stephen Frey, author of Shadow Account
 
"Frighteningly real and powerful, Fade by Kyle Mills hurls the reader into a dark journey into the human soul. With suspense as taut as a dead man's smile, Mills blends fiction and fact in a heart-stopping, spellbinding tale of espionage and politics that is not only convincingly real but vastly entertaining."
---Gayle Lynds, author of The Coil
