By Helen Goltz

“Leaves the reader breathless and exhausted.” Sylvia Loader, Sisters in Crime

“Many twists and surprises as the plot develops, and the various daring crimes are wonderfully inventive.” Lorraine Montgomery, Ms M’s Bookshelf

You are playing a game online; masterminding the perfect crime. Or at least you think it’s a game.

A seemingly normal web site inviting game players to mastermind the perfect crime is the façade for billionaire Lawrence Hackett’s real-life game of Mastermind—an invitation-only competition for a select few to see who can perform the perfect heist and win an enormous bounty.

Special Agent Mitchell Parker and his team learn the magnitude of the international crime ring just in time. Washington, London, Paris … the clock is on. If you love it when a plan comes together, hold on tight, because nothing is about to go right!
