Special Order—Subject to Availability

When a deadly enemy reappears with a lethal new plan, it's up to FBI Special Agent Ericka Blackwood to stop him – but not before she overcomes the failures of her past.

Following her harrowing encounter with predatory cybercriminal Dantalion, and her decision to pursue vengeance over duty, Ericka Blackwood hit rock bottom. Her only path to redemption is through the relentless pursuit of her elusive old enemy.

But Ericka is not the only one seeking Dantalion, whose tastes for chaos and carnage have drawn him into the world of international terrorism. When an attempt to destroy a Pakistani jail alerts intelligence services that Dantalion has emerged from hiding, Ericka and her old FBI team are hot on the criminal mastermind's trail.

Which is exactly what he wants...

“A cat-and-mouse technothriller that spans the globe... Reminiscent of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, Blackwood makes for a captivating protagonist... She matches and foils the villain every step of the way. A high-octane narrative, a spell-binding, tense story woven through many points-of-view. An uncomfortable, graphic read at times, it builds to a tense crescendo. The scope and twistiness of the narrative lend themselves to the format of a long TV series, and I hope someone makes it soon.” —Damyanti Biswas, The Big Thrill
