Thriller maestro Pearson kicks off a new law-enforcement series with this breathtaking launch. Told from multiple points
of view, it keeps you on the edge of your seat as both the hero and the villain try to overcome unexpected obstacles to reach their goals.

Eight years ago, rookie Sun Valley cop Walt Fleming followed his instincts and saved the life of New York attorney general Liz Shaler. These days Walt is the sheriff of Sun Valley, Idaho, and Liz is preparing to run for president. He becomes a part of the security detail when Liz is scheduled to make a speech at a conference hosted by billionaire tycoon Patrick Cutter in Sun Valley.

When law enforcement receives a death threat, and a viciously murdered body is found nearby, Walt, the Secret Service and the FBI go on the alert. But while the other agencies focus on a protest organization, Walt suspects there's a more professional contract in place. Turf wars are not pretty, and Walt has no patience for them, especially when Liz's life may be on the line. (PUTNAM, Jul., 336 pp., $24.95)
