"That rare beast: A superior page-turner that manages to pull at your heart." - David Baldacci
Mr. and Mrs. Middle America take it on the lam from an army of law enforcers when a routine check reveals that they're high on the Most Wanted list.
Meet Jake and Carolyn Brighton, in all respects a typical couple in small-town America. No one would ever think that they occupy the top two slots on the FBI's most-wanted list. Fourteen years ago their last name was Donovan, and according to their accusers, they slaughtered sixteen of their friends and touched off an eco-disaster of unprecedented proportions. The Feds want them. Badly. So badly that the FBI's chief will stop at nothing to bring them to justice.
When a freak false arrest rousts the Donovans from their hiding place, the chase is on. But this time, after all the years underground, Jake and Carolyn are not sure they have the stamina to renew their flight. Even more poignantly, they know they don't have the heart to condemn their 13-year-old son, Travis -- who has no idea that his parents are two of the most wanted fugitives in the country -- to a life on the run. To achieve salvation, not just for themselves but for him, the couple must attempt the insane: elude a massive man hunt and revisit the origins of their nightmare -- a toxic hell that just may contain the evidence that will set them free.
Gilstrap has ingeniously twisted his simple premise six ways from Sunday with endless rounds of entertainingly action-packed pursuit.
