The bomb that nearly killed Thomas Black, the main character in the author’s mystery series, goes off in a school gymnasium after a Senate candidate has spoken. When Black, widower, hero, and private investigator is released from the hospital, he must face the fact that his wife, Kathy, a lawyer who died in a plane crash weeks before the bombing, is really gone. Although he knows she is dead, he keeps seeing her and her cell phone is being used to call him late at nights. Questioning explanations investigators give for the crash he then becomes interested in what a former CIA hit man has been trying to tell him about the crash and people keep dying. The storyline is fast-paced, and makes a strong case that the government's prime role is to cover-up the mistakes of its leaders. A great thriller.
