15 seconds can tear your life apart . . .
Henry Steadman never knew what was about to hit him when he pulled up to a red light. Stopped by the police for a minor traffic violation—pulled from his vehicle, handcuffed, and told he is under arrest. Then a blue sedan drives up, a police officer is shot dead, and the car speeds away, leaving behind one suspect: Henry Steadman. Suddenly his life becomes an unrelenting chase to stay alive.
Henry is the target of a massive police manhunt while also being pursued by a cunning, unnamed predator bent on terrifying vengeance. With breakneck pacing and nonstop action, 15 Seconds is the story of an innocent man who must save the person he loves most by confronting a man determined to destroy his life.

He lives in Westchester County, New York, with his wife, Lynn.
“A total white knuckle, stay-up-all-night thrill ride. Enjoyed the heck out of it!”
“Gripping...coming up on the rails behind Harlan Coben and Lee Child.... Very diverting.”
-Evening Standard (UK)
“An intensive manhunt....Thrillingly realistic with a surprising resolution.
