Six Seconds


Six Seconds by Rick Mofina (ARC) ~~


A vengeful woman who aches for her place in paradise…

In Iraq an aid worker who lost her husband and child in a brutal attack saves the life of an American contractor. Believing he can help her avenge her family's deaths, she follows him back home to the United States.

An anguished mother desperate to find her child…

In California a soccer mom arrives to pick up her son from school, only to discover that her husband has taken their child and vanished without a trace.

A detective who needs to redeem himself…

In the Rocky Mountains an off-duty cop rescues a little girl from a raging river moments before she utters her final words in his arms. Haunted by failure, he launches an investigation that leads him to a Montana school where time is ticking down on an event that will rewrite history.…

Three strangers entangled in a plot to change the world in only six seconds…

What could an Iraqi aid worker, a soccer mom from California and a off duty Canadian RM cop have in common? Not much you would think except they are all drawn into an evil plot to assassinate one of the nost powerful people in the world. The reasoning behind the assissination is not outrageous - it's the way in which it is to be carried out. The author does an amazing, and scary, job of leading you to the culmination of this sick plot - the six seconds that will change the world. To think that this method of elimination could possibly exist is enough to chill you to your bones. Rick Mofina has always been a favorite author of mine, and once again does not disappoint. You will be turning the pages late into the night to see how and if the impossible is possible.
