Thriller Police Procedural
"I was with the FBI..." Special Agent Mark Beamon has a
plan. By slurring that one key word 'was,' he can obscure
the fact that he has been suspended, and use the FBI
against itself to solve the toughest, most twisted case of
his career. It's bold. It's dangerous. It's the kind of
maverick operation that has made him both the Bureau's
best agent and its least-likely-to-succeed screwup.
A top-secret FBI file buried in an anonymous government
warehouse is missing. Code named Prodigy, the operation
was the brainchild of J. Edgar Hoover, who created it to
use against his potential enemies. It encompasses everyone
in Washington, from JFK to this year's presidential
candidate, David Hallorin. The unlucky grad student who
uncovered Prodigy is dead, and now his girlfriend is on
the run, accused of a hideous murder.
The only man everyone agrees can find the young woman and
turn up the explosive document is 'off-duty.' After he
revealed embarrassing government illegalities during his
previous investigation, the FBI has turned on Mark Beamon
and is threatening him with criminal prosecution. He knows
better than anyone that this case is his last shot to save
his careerâ€”and his country.
Tracking her down will turn out to be the most demanding
case Beamon's ever facedâ€”for the young woman is a
professional rock-climber and can drop out of sight
anywhere in the world. As it becomes clear that he isn't
the only one looking, Beamon begins to ask himself if he
might be better off failing this time. Even if he does
find her and the file, who will he be able to trust when
the FBI itself is under suspicion?
Mark Beamon is playing for the highest stakes this time.
If he blows this one, his career is overâ€”and his prison
