When Homicide Detective Jacob Striker discovers a torture chamber in a steel barn down by the river, he is propelled into an investigation that leads to two mysterious bombers. Every few hours, another victim is targeted, located - and then blown to smithereens. Very quickly, Striker realizes the attacks are not random. But one obvious question remains: Why? With people dying at an alarming rate, Striker desperately searches for an answer to this question. When he discovers it, a stark coldness fills him. For he begins to understand. The reason leads back to a police file that is now ten years old. To a dark and dangerous place across the seas. And to one of Striker's oldest mentors and dearest friends. With time running out, Striker must catch the two bombers before they finish the job and complete their kill list. Otherwise there will be little left for Jacob Striker to save. Little left, but dust and bones.

Book #3 in the Jacob Striker series. // Another fast-paced page-turner, set in and around Vancouver. // As the denouement approaches, Striker and his partner are reviewing the events and the web of evidence that they've uncovered -- and firming up their conclusions about the identities of the murderer and the next intended victim -- when she says: "Yeah. Make one hell of a novel." // Indeed it did.

I am an avid reader. I LOVED this book!! Action and dialogue on every page. I couldn't wait to read it every night. One of the very best I have read in my 63 years.
