When a sniper begins killing Florida’s most dangerous criminals, a journalist must choose between revenge and the law
 
As a reporter for the South Florida Daily News, Nick Mullins has covered the worst of the Sunshine State’s crooks and murderers. But the man he’s obsessed with is Robert Walker, responsible for the deaths of Mullins’s wife and daughter in a drunk driving accident. When a military-trained sniper begins murdering the criminals Mullins has covered in his reporting, he comes to a harrowing crossroads: Stop the sniper’s reign of terror, or succumb to his own thirst for vengeance and allow Walker to become the killer’s next target.

"A veteran crime reporter, Nick Mullins was no stranger to scenes of violence and loss. He was well practiced at keeping tragedy at arm's length with a professional detachment - until he was forced to face his own tragedy when a drunk driver took the lives of Nick's wife and one of their two daughters, forever shattering his world. Now, with a nine-year-old to raise on his own, Nick struggles to balance single fatherhood with a career that daily puts him into the dark corners of death and justice." "When a convicted murderer is dramatically and publicly gunned down with a single bullet to the head in front of a county jailhouse, Nick is immediately dispatched by his newspaper to cover the story, pressing his old police contacts with his usual mix of subtle charm and brazen questioning. But when he realizes that the victim was the subject of one of his old stories, Nick is drawn into the investigation himself. Before long he's one step ahead of the cops in the hunt for a cold-blooded killer ... a sniper who has a talent for targeting criminals, and who makes it clear that he has his eye on Nick." "With his career, family, and life on the line, Nick plays a delicate and potentially deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the police, the Secret Service, and his editors - all of whom are watching Nick's every move as he fights to find the shooter before he strikes again."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
