The death of his son during the Waco, Texas disaster is the catalyst for an anti-government fanatic to take revenge.

But look, Ed. We were supposed to have us a little talk, not a firefight. He began to come closer. Kreiss twitched the Barrett’s barrel. That wasn’t a firefight. And I can hear you fine from right there. Ransom stopped and flashed his palms at Kreiss in a gesture of peace. All right, that’s cool, he said, but this isn’t what you think. The rifle wasn’t pointed right at him, but it would not have taken much to fix that. Kreiss knew that from Ransom’s perspective, the business end of a Barrett light.

Narrated by Dick Hill.

When college kids hiking near an abandoned military industrial complex in West Virginia mysteriously disappear, special agent Janet Carter—earnest, honest, and fed up with the stifling chauvinistic environment at the Roanoke FBI headquarters—is called in to investigate. Unfortunately, there are no leads—it's as if the three just vanished into thin air. The authorities at the FBI are quick to write off the case as teenage runaways, and order Janet off the case—but not before she has the chance to speak with the father of one of the missing, Edwin Kriess.


Kriess is an ex-"sweeper," a member of an elite CIA task force trained to track down and bring in rogue agents. To be a sweeper means to be expertly trained in the art of hunting and killing, and Kriess was not only a sweeper himself, but the agent in charge of training and leading the entire program. Only something went wrong—an assignment to track down an agent involved in a Chinese espionage plot ended in a bloody massacre, and threatened to reveal a monumental government cover-up. Kriess was quietly sacrificed to the scandal, and has since lived in solitude.


But now his daughter is missing, and he knows that she didn't run away—and he will do anything to find her and bring her abductors to justice. His search brings him back to the abandoned industrial complex, where two right-wing religious fanatics—tied to the Waco disaster and inspired by the Oklahoma City bombing—are building a hydrogen bomb.


When the FBI learns of Kriess' independent investigations, they fear the worst: he knows too many secrets already, and if his search efforts are successful, a scandal of epic proportions would unfold. They decide they need a plant, someone who has access to Kriess, and can win his trust. Someone who will report back what he knows, and what he finds—and that person is Janet Carter.

I enjoyed this book so much I read it twice. I have read very nearly every book Mr. Deutermann has written. This is my favorite. There are plenty of other reviews that discuss the plot and characters. What I liked about this book was that the main character is a dad who loves his daughter and is trying to rescue her. Middle-aged dad as avenger! Because I have a daughter, I connected with that. Most of Deutermann's books have some romance. I hate that and skip those pages. I enjoy action/adventure stories with an element of suspense. Deutermann does a fine job spinning engaging stories. This book has a female character named Janet Carter, an FBI agent. She is not a romantic interest. She is not a side-kick. She is a foil, a dramatic device used effectively. This book was hard to put down and was free of the annoying defect of romance. It has a very satisfying ending, which I will not give away.

The FBI and the CIA are involved here in quite a combination of events. It takes place in western Virginia along some roadways I've travelled myself. If this story doesn't shock you into attention, nothing will. A young girl disappears. A father begins a long search after the FBI tosses in the towel. Mysterious occurrences in an old Army weapons facility. The CIA lurking around every corner and a young FBI agent learning to develop situational awareness keeps the story rolling along. This one should be read before taking on Sweepers another one of Deutermann's novels dealing with a similar subject. I very much enjoyed this as well as ten other of his novels. I also recommend Train Man and Scorpion in the Sea for anyone interested in what terrorists can easily do the US.

Audiobook review... The narrator/reader, Dick Hill, is really good and is what kept me listening. I know this is an old book, but I just had to say this.

I really dislike heroes who act like amateurs. Our hero, Edwin Kreiss, who is searching for his missing daughter stumbles into an ambush and the next time he goes back to the place where he was shot at...and guess what..he doesn't even take a gun...oh please.

The bad guys are smarter than the ex-FBI agent with a reputation that belies belief based on how he acts in this story.

Mr. Deutermann, go back to Cam Richter. He is a bit more believable.

This ia an entertaining story, but the longer it went on, the more I wanted to scream at stupid FBI, ATF, you name it. Thank God they really aren't this "inept".

Would be about 3.5 stars; has a strong building sense of suspense, but it can get quite redundant and caught up in a repetitive suspenseful situation. I have tried two of his books--last through 100-150 pages, but then I realize I have 200+ pages to go of the same thing and quit. Still he knows how to create drama for a specific number of pages.
  • Irostamore
This book is yet another winner in the author's stable. Jam packed with almost non stop action, plus a couple of new twists in the tradecraft of operators at this level. The plot is loaded with unexpected changes of direction that keep the reader glued to the book. A sub-plot describing the main protagonist's driving force is alluded to a few times during the story. However, the author keeps the full explanation until close to the end, which captures the reader's interest even more. One thing that would be helpful, but not necessary, would be a diagram of the area where a lot of the story takes place. If you like mystery/adventure stories, this one should be on your list.
  • Cashoutmaster
Sounded like an interesting premise but poorly written and the plot completely predictable and the characters acted in ways that made no sense considering the training and experience they were supposed to have. A disappointment and a bore; try the first ten of twenty Spenser novels by Robert Parker instead. Or older Raymond Chandler. You'll enjoy it more.
