"... a main character to die for."
"A high-velocity roller coaster of a thriller!"
On sale November 15, 2016
Every year the nation gathers to watch New York City's trademark event: the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Marching bands from all over the country, floats featuring Broadway's biggest stars, giant balloons carried by hundreds of volunteers . . . and somewhere a madman holding two children captive. One of those children is the police commissioner's daughter.
Once again, the smart, straight-edged FBI Agent Eve Rossi must call upon her Vidocq Unit—a group of ex-convicts with extraordinary talents, oversized egos, and contempt for the rules. This motley cast of characters brilliantly blur the lines between heroes and villains, but they are all united with one shared mission: to save two children and an iconic New York institution before time runs out.
