"When General Griffin North, a highly decorated African American icon, is killed in a suspicious plane crash, the special commission, led by renowned federal judge Simon Esterhaus, deems it a tragic accident caused by pilot error." "But Mollie Smith of the Criminal Investigation Division vows to keep the investigation alive - single-handedly and on her own terms, if necessary. Certain the General was assassinated, and keenly aware that certain officials in high places would have stopped at nothing to keep a black man from a possible vice-presidential nomination, Mollie intensifies the pitch of her inquiry." "Then Mollie - her investigation nearly complete - is found murdered. Rachel Collins, Mollie's protegee and close friend, is left to pick up the scent of conspiracy enveloping the dead. With the help of Mollie's brother, Logan, the head of the hermetically sealed FBI team tracking domestic terrorists, Rachel comes head to head with the Engineer, an ingenious and ruthless killer whose sole goal is to cut short her inquiry - and her life. For Rachel, this assassin becomes her only link to a conspiracy that is much more deadly and far-reaching than she thought possible. It becomes clear to Rachel that she is marked by a man whose mysterious resources and top-secret information continually help him to thwart her."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

display_description Philip Shelby's electrifying bestseller Days of Drums was praised as "taut and exciting" (Los Angeles Times). Now this master of Washington thriller pits a maverick military officer against the ultimate nemesis: an unrelenting assassin who is the mastermind behind a far-reaching government conspiracy. In a tense stakeout at an Army warehouse, Warrant Officer Rachel Collins breaks all the rules by going on her own -- and in a flash from her Sig-Sauer, takes down a barricaded arms dealer. But the man's dying words -- "Found out about North, didn't ya?" -- are a shocking tip-off to the truth about General Griffin North, an African-American icon whose ambitions toward the vice-presidency died with him in a fatal accident. Now seeing North's death in a new light, Rachel digs up deadly truths within the darkest corners of authority. Taking on a covert probe that has already claimed the life of a top agent inside the Criminal Investigation Division, Rachel cracks an ironclad chain of government cover-ups. And the essential link is the Engineer: a killer of cold precision who could silence Rachel forever -- but insted lures her with top-secret disclosures, into an explosive confrontation that will strike at the highest ranks of leadership.
