The Burning Edge

Rick Mofina. Mira, $7.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-0-7783-1301-4
In Mofina’s strained fourth Jack Gannon thriller (after 2011’s In Desperation), the $6 million robbery of an armored truck at a New Jersey highway service center and the murder of its three guards plus an FBI agent who was taken hostage put three people on the spot: widowed Lisa Palmer, a key witness to the killings; FBI agent Frank Morrow, who takes charge of the intensive manhunt; and reporter Gannon, who finds himself digging for the biggest story of his life. Meanwhile, gang leader Ivan Felk and the remnants of his black ops crew plan another robbery to get the $12 million ransom needed to save their comrades held captive in Afghanistan. When Palmer provides a clue that threatens to thwart Felk’s rescue plans, Felk vows to seek vengeance if it’s the last thing he does. Mofina ratchets up a dramatic if unlikely ending with an unexpected hero. Agent: AMB Literary Management. (Jan.)
