Agent O'Neill orders Frank and Joe off the case, forcing them to try a rescue on their own. Suddenly the brother sleuths are running from the law, straight into a terrorist death trap-while Callie watches her life tick away. ============== From inside the book: SCREAMING DEATH Frank opened his hand, studying the detonator for a long moment.
