"Hawke knows how to flesh out his characters and set up strong action scenes. Give this one to David Baldacci fans who don't mind a little more gore."
   —Library Journal

Read more praise here...

The people who know that Senator Andy Foster's charm can get the better of him have bugged the Shelter Island bungalow where the up-and-coming senator is enjoying a midnight tryst with a beautiful campaign advisor. But all hell breaks loose when a man carrying an iron pipe comes crashing through the bedroom's sliding glass door. Within seconds, the young woman lies bloodied, dead on the sheets, and Foster has fled in panic.

And it's all on tape.

As momentum builds for Foster's likely selection as the next Vice President, the senator's only hope of keeping his involvement with the murdered woman secret is to locate his blackmailers. But even they don't have their hands on the devastating images. The man they used for the job has turned the tables and is blackmailing them.

Are we talking a major mess here? You bet.

Read the first chapter.

ORDER THE BOOK from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or from IndieBound.

   —Washington Post
