MISTAKEN IDENTITY

 

Where do you run when you're mistaken for someone else?

Jenny Roberts grew up in a house full of men, all involved in law enforcement. So, she knew the odds were stacked against her when she chose to become a cop, from the moment she joined the army to her service as an MP in Iraq and her career as an FBI agent. She’s overcome every obstacle placed in her path. But now her future is full of uncertainty and she’s full of doubt.

A member of an elite counterterrorist “fly team” that thwarted a terrorist plot on the nation’s capital, she finds herself on administrative leave for an “agent-involved shooting” to save her partner from being killed by the terrorist behind the attack. But it’s not a routine investigation. Her partner, the fly team leader, threw her under the bus when the bureau sanctioned the team for “unapproved methods.”

At loose ends, she takes a train to the small Wisconsin town where she grew up, despite the fact that she hasn’t seen her family for more than a decade. Soon after boarding, a case of mistaken identity puts Jenny on the run with a sadistic killer on her trail.

Cut off from the bureau and its resources, Jenny sets out on her own to warn her doppelganger. As soon as she finds the woman, events spiral out of control, and the pair becomes the target of a deadly cross-country chase to Jenny’s home town. There, they and Jenny’s family make a last-ditch stand against all the forces arrayed against them.

But Jenny alone must face the family tragedies that have shaped her—as well as the ruthless killer at the heart of it all.

STOLEN IDENTITY

Who are you when someone steals your name?

TWO MEN: a former tunnel rat in the Vietnam War and CIA assassin in Cambodia now in his 60s living a quiet life in Ypsilanti, Michigan; and a mysterious mastermind behind a number of major al Qaeda terror attacks since the 1990s. Two sons: a US assistant district attorney in Detroit; and a suspected terrorist awaiting trial for attempting to smuggle explosives across the Canadian border. One grandson: kidnapped and used as leverage...

Zane Keator thought he left war behind when he came home from Southeast Asia as the Vietnam War drew to a close. He’s even avoiding the phone calls from his doctor at the VA hospital, knowing that a diagnosis means he’ll soon be fighting a war of a different sort. But when an FBI counterterrorist fly team raids his house in the middle of the night, the threat of war becomes personal. His old instincts kick in, and he barely escapes.

 

Soon the subject of a massive manhunt, Keator realizes as he flees the city that the team came in silent and hot, intending to kill not capture him. To figure out who stole his identity and why he’s suddenly a wanted man, he turns to the only people who can help him, a fellow “rat,” and his former CIA handler in Cambodia.

As the FBI closes in and time runs out on a plot to wreak the most heinous terrorist attack ever on American soil, Keator’s showdown with the man who stole his name all comes down to two things: Keator’s fierce love for his autistic grandson, and an antique weapon he used against the Viet Cong in the Cù Chi
tunnels outside Saigon.
