"Targets Down" is the follow-up to retired FBI agent Bob Hamer's "Enemies Among Us," which "Publishers Weekly" hailed as "a page-turning roller coaster that feels like Jack Bauer's "24" without sailing over the top."
When an FBI wife is critically wounded and two people are found dead on a mountain pass, special agent Matt Hogan is tasked with identifying those responsible. The undercover assignment takes him into the shadow world of Russian organized crime, neo-Nazis, and the sex-slave industry. Matt's cover is almost blown twice once by accident, once by incompetence within the FBI ranks making violence appear to be his only solution. As he confronts evil, Hogan relies not only on the strength of his wife's faith but his own quest to find God. He also finds terror and terrorism on this heart-pounding journey.
