THE BURNING EDGE
Mofina continues his amazing streak of tight and excruciating suspense with his latest Jack Gannon book. All of the great thriller elements are in abundance: a terrifying villain, a woman in the wrong place at the wrong time and a reporter seeking answers at all costs. A winner in every aspect, and a must-read.
When Lisa Palmer stops to buy gas she walks into a nightmare. An armored car heist leaves her the sole witness to a brutal robbery and execution. Frank Morrow, an FBI agent with terminal cancer, gets the call to protect her. Reporter Jack Gannon sees this case as the perfect opportunity to get an exclusive and keep his job. The ruthless killer, still at large, has other ideas. (MIRA, Dec., 400 pp., $7.99)
