Summary As an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, William Queen has tackled a number of challenging cases, including going undercover to investigate a group of violent skinheads and infiltrating and busting a ring trafficking in high-powered explosives, drugs, and firearms. In the winter of 1985, he faces his toughest mission to date: he must apprehend Mark Stephens, a notorious narcotics trafficker who has been terrorizing Southern California with frequent rampages involving machine guns and hand grenades. Living in the backwoods, Stephens is a cunning survivalist, but he has finally met his match in Queen, who, as a kid, would go hunting and trapping and living for weeks in the wild. Queen will use these skills--along with surveillance, confidential informants, and intelligence gathering--as he doggedly tracks his dangerous quarry, a chase that culminates in a showdown high in the San Bernardino Mountains.--From publisher description.
