Two years ago, Jack Logan and journalist Taylor Stevens fought and destroyed the evil Institute, a corrupt organization with ties to government and political figures at all levels. The two have settled down into married life with their two-year-old son, Evan. But a disturbing murder-suicide at a local Little League game causes Jack to question if the incident is linked to similar disturbances around the country. What makes these individuals go crazy and homicidal? Soon a pattern emerges. Meanwhile, Taylor is working on a story about a lawsuit against a national insurance company that could go all the way to the Supreme Court. Jack soon discovers that there may be a connection between the lawsuit and the suicides and murders happening all around them. They don’t realize that they have uncovered a conspiracy beyond the likes of anything they have ever encountered before.
VERDICT Shaw delivers a second action-packed installment in the “Jack Logan” series (after The Network). The characters are well drawn and the story amps up to a cliff-hanger ending that will satisfy most thriller lovers. This book will appeal to fans of puzzle-solving thrillers and catastrophe stories from authors such as Steve Berry, David Baldacci, and Robin Cook.
