Field of Fire

Marc Cameron. Pinnacle, $9.99 mass market (448p) ISBN 978-0-7860-3892-3

Nothing can stop Jericho Quinn from completing his mission, as shown in Thriller Award–finalist Cameron’s exciting seventh thriller featuring the stalwart agent for the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (after 2015’s Brute Force). Even though Quinn is still banged up from his last outing, National Security advisor Winfield Palmer tasks him with bringing in Russian scientist Kostya Volodin, who has invented a particularly virulent nerve gas known as New Archangel and is now on the run in Alaska, Quinn’s home state. To complicate matters, two dozen canisters of the gas are in the hands of unknown operators, and a horrific attack on a packed football stadium in Dallas, Tex., promises more deadly mayhem unless the gas is secured. Quinn is hot on Volodin’s trail, assisted by plucky FBI special agent Khaki Beaudine, when their small plane goes down in the Alaskan wilderness and the real adventures begin. From this point on, the book races along at a breakneck pace until the last shot is fired. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (Jan.)
