Crafty Brennan wraps up her Prison Break trilogy with the intricate tale of a nearly perfect frame-up. With so many moving parts in this drama, Brennan does an outstanding job keeping the players distinct and slowly revealing how the plot threads all intersect. It's wonderfully complex and terrifying at the same time.
FBI agent Mitch Bianchi is skating on thin ice by contacting Claire in an undercover fashion. Not officially assigned to the O'Brien case, he still feels compelled to investigate. Could Tom really be innocent? If so, the conspiracy to convict him runs wide and deep. (BALLANTINE, Oct., 458 pp., $6.99)
