Synopses & Reviews
Arizona's Meza Azul penitentiary is a technological wonder built to hold the worst of the worst. But somehow a prisoner has breached the foolproof security, opened the cells, and now holds more than one hundred guards and workers hostage. Cold, brilliant, and crazy, Navy sub commander-turned-double murderer Timothy Driver is in control. And one hostage will die every six hours until he gets what he wants: rogue journalist Frank Corso.
But Captain Driver wants a lot more than the ear of a once sympathetic writer who penned a bestselling book about Driver and his crimes. Joined by a cold-blooded hayseed murder machine named "Cutter" Kehoe, Driver's got a surprise or two in store: an ingenious undetected escape right under the noses of the storming government troops, followed by a maniacal cross-country killing spree . . . with Frank Corso along for the ride until the savage, bloody end.
In his latest, most exciting novel to date, Ford's dark and complex protagonist, rogue journalist Frank Corso, finds himself drawn into a bizarre carnival of blood and death in the last place any sane person would willingly go--a high-tech penitentiary.
