High stakes geopolitics, presidential contenders and the bearers of a secret as ancient as the Mayans drive the stakes in Rachel Lee's Wildcard. FBI agent Tom Lawton's rebellion against authority keeps him from the vanguard of investigators who are looking into the shooting of leading presidential candidate Grant Lawrence. But that extra edge gives Tom an intuitive advantage that could make him a target. When conspiracies are whispered and trails followed, trails that lead to the highest reaches of government power, trust is not easily shared. Agent Renate Bachle's many secrets swirl around her like mists, yet Tom must decide whether she may be the only one he can confide in . . . and risk his life with. Wildcard is a sublime suspense novel that will leave you gasping for breath as you chase through each fast-turning page. Sandy Huseby writes from Fargo, North Dakota.
