In this compelling novel, chemist Daniel Thomas tries to prove that his wife and unborn child were murdered. He makes it his mission in life to seek revenge. Meanwhile, deadly lint particles are unleashed in Miami, victims are dropping like flies, and he is the prime suspect.
Homicide Detective Steve McDonald has been confined to administrative duties for publicly embarrassing the department following the death of a suspect in his custody. He is reassigned to active duty in time to help hunt down the “Lint Killer,” as the police try to save the lives of thousands of potential victims.
An international game of power, greed, and money is discovered as the investigation takes a new turn.
Eddie Coyne loves playing the horses. Loves it so much it’s ruining his relationship with his wife and six-year-old son. In a last ditch effort to prove he’s not a loser in their eyes, Eddie places a seemingly impossible bet on a long shot and hits pay dirt.
But before he can cash in and make amends with his family, he’s thrown down an escalator and left for dead by a greedy hoodlum looking to cash in on Eddie’s winnings. Dying, Eddie wakes up in the presence of the Jesses, a monolithic group of six whose job it is to decide who enters heaven and who enters hell. The Jesses tell Eddie he’s stuck in the middle—not good enough for heaven, not bad enough for hell. They entice him to go in on one final bet to break the dead heat.
If he triumphs, they stamp his ticket to paradise. If he loses, he spends eternity in the netherworld. The bet? Eddie must prevent someone chosen by the Jesses from taking their own life. Thinking it will be a piece of cake, Eddie agrees. He quickly learns the Jesses are more cunning than he’d imagined.
