Description
" A] tight, twisty thriller....Hums along like a sizzling fastball thrown straight and sure."
--Providence Journal-Bulletin Bestselling author James Grippando is back with a gripping stand-alone thriller. Intent to Kill electrifies from the first inning on--as a fallen baseball star-turned-sports radio "shock jock" tries to expose a conspiracy and outwit a killer. Crackling with Grippando's trademark suspense, ingenious plotting, and unforgettable characters, Intent to Kill is a grand slam from the author Nelson DeMille calls, "A very intense and ingenious storyteller."
