Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615841880, Paperback)

When Jake Travis is contracted by his ex-Army colonel to retrieve a missing fifty year-old Cold War letter, he quickly finds himself entwined in a world where the line between good and evil becomes increasingly blurred. The letter, written in 1961 by a CIA operative who met a mysterious demise, has ended up in the possession of Raydel Escobar. As Jake relentlessly pursues the enigmatic Escobar, he soon discovers that Escobar is involved in far more than simply blackmailing the IRS in exchange for the letter. Assisted by his partner Garrett and neighbor Morgan, Jake turns up the heat on Escobar. Fascinated with the letter’s origins and the fate of those who first touched the document, Jake will stop at no end--moral or otherwise--to complete his assigned task. Jake’s girlfriend questions why he places their relationship, and his life, in jeopardy for something he knows so little about. The Second Letter is a page-turning mystery that blends suspense with literary fiction. Set on the west coast of Florida, its plot twists, richly-drawn characters, and sharp, witty dialogue forge a gripping and entertaining read. Jake discovers that only by risking everything can he define himself, secure his relationship with the woman he loves, and discover the message of the second letter. "...a standout sleuth...a worthy new entry into the suspense genre." Foreword Clarion Reviews, Five Stars "Lane's crime thriller features a wisecracking Jacob Travis...with a penchant for breaking the rules...certainly worth a read for fans of the genre." Kirkus Reviews "Robert Lane's novel, The Second Letter, is an entertaining read fueled by a riveting story featuring a wisecracking, somewhat reluctant hero...the book moves at an idea pace..." blueink Review
