Book Description


St. Martin's: NY 2003 Advance reading copy, mint, new/unread in pictorial wraps.

Turbocharged thriller from the romantic-suspense author (a.k.a. Kathleen Korbel) of 1997s Brain Dead (her hardcover debut). Trauma nurse Maggie OBrien joins the SWAT team as a medic the same summer that all hell breaks loose in St. Louis. Heat and a cicada infestation have brought every nutcase, wife beater, child abuser, and cop killer out of the woodwork. People are dying like flies. First case is a doozy: former FBI agent Montana Bob has gone crazy, beset by paranoid fantasies about angels of death in dark uniforms. He takes as hostage Maggies true love, Sean Delaney, a supertough and sexy cop whos nonchalantly munching on a candy bar when hes finally rescued. Later, Montana Bob dies in the ER for no apparent reason. Later still, an hours-long hostage stakeout turns violent when a drunk sets his four-year-old son on fire. Anyone would agree that Jimmy Krebs deserved to die instead of the boy, but his injuries werent fatal. Just why is it that he and some of Maggies other patients end up in the morgue within a few hours of entering the hospital? Did their names appear on The List, an informal record of perps, suspects, and repeat offenders that the cops and medical personnel scribble on a hospital wall? No use asking Maggies dad, a cop with a hair-trigger temper who left the force under mysterious circumstances. Maggie has no reason to trust him: her mother committed suicide, and father Tommy ("The Terminator") OBrien has gone through six more wives since. Hes a staunch believer in toeing the thin blue line, and hes not talking. Maggies colleaguesincluding the flamboyantly gay Dr. Allen Fitzmaurice and fellow trauma nurse Jeanniedont seem to know a thing. But the press ison to the story. Can the citys first female SWAT medic actually be a cold-blooded murderer? Only Maggie can find the real killer as things lead to a shattering, unpredictable climax Nonstop action and a tough babe with a heart. Top-drawer. Author tour
