A U.S. MARSHAL DRIVEN BY GRIEF AND RAGE...
A MAFIA DON WHO TRAFFICS IN HUMAN LIVES…
A KILLER WITH THE MOST CHILLING PEDIGREE OF ALL...
The Justice Department is hunting Sam Manelli, the godfather of one of America’s biggest crime families. Now an execution gone bad hands the government the ammunition they need. But they can’t do it without Dylan Devlin, the sociopathic hit man whose testimony will put Manelli away for good. Haunted by the crash that killed his wife and blinded his son, U.S. Marshal Winter Massey knows that safety is only an illusion. Now a man who couldn’t protect his own family has to keep a killer and his wife alive—at any cost.
But when the government’s witness protection program explodes in a horrifying hail of bullets and blood, Massey knows he’s up against a killer who can go anywhere, be anyone, and strike at any time. For Massey is about to be blindsided by an adversary more lethal than the mob, more dangerous than any psychopath—and he won’t see his killer coming…until it’s too late.
John Ramsey Miller's career has included stints as a visual artist, commercial photographer, advertising copy writer, and photojournalist. A native son of Mississippi, he has lived in Nashville, New Orleans, and Miami, and now resides in North Carolina, where he writes fiction full-time. His second Winter Massey thriller, Upside Down, goes on sale June 28, 2005, and John is already deep into his third novel, Side By Side, which Dell will publish in early 2006.
"A tale of big-city mobsters, brilliant killers, and a compellingly real
U.S. marshal—you won’t want to put it down."
