Wes knows the seminar is a monumental waste of his time- he belongs on the Chicago streets, doing what he does best, which is busting counterfeiters. The presence of Charles old friend Secret Service agent Louis Boron, Seattle cop James Allen, and beautiful DEA agent Wendy Weissman provide a welcome distraction from the mind-numbing classes. The four inadvertently discover that something menacing is lurking behind The Complexs facade of inter-agency cooperation. When their investigations reveal a conspiracy that threatens the very fabric of American democracy, they find themselves up against a powerful, unknown enemy- and running for their lives. The explosion came in the middle of the night, igniting the gas line, engulfing the little house in flames and tossing its occupants onto the floor. Wes choked on the smoke and felt for his piece. He tucked it into the waistband of his sweats, crawled to the bathroom and grabbed a towel from the rack. Somehow, the water was still running. He soaked himself and the towel in the tub thoroughly before attempting to break through the wall of smoke that had enveloped the master bedroom. He could hear Talbots screams amid the crackling of the flames and the tinkling of glass. And he could hear Gordon calling his name from the direction of the kitchen. Gordon, he shouted, Can you hear me? After graduating from the University of Iowa, with a BA degree in Sociology/Criminology, Mr Tucker began his career with the Federal Bureau of Narcotics in Chicago, Illinois and subsequently transferred to the U.S. Secret Service where he eventually was promoted to the position of Special Agent in Charge of the Secret Service Office for Arizona. Later, Mr Tucker received a Presidential Appointment as U. S. Marshal for the State of Arizona and afterwards was selected as the Chief of Court Security in Washington D.C., for the Federal Court system nationwide. Finally, he returned to Arizona and opened his own Private Investigation Agency. This is Mr Tuckers second book, the first was his auto-bio The Two Edged Sword.
