Read from July 22 to 23, 2012 — I own a copy

A routine traffic stop turns out to be anything but for Henry Steadman. The plan was to get the rental car, check in to the hotel, and play some golf before the Doctors Without Borders conference began. But on the way to the hotel, Steadman gets lost. He's pulled over for running a red light and things take a weird turn. Before he knows it, he's in the back of a police cruiser, cuffed and being yelled at by an irate officer. When the fuss dies down, the officer admits it was a case of mistaken identity and is about to let Steadman go on a warning when a second car pulls up and the cop is shot. Now Steadman's friend is dead as well and the doctor is running for his life. His only hope is untangling the web he's now caught up in and finding the real killer before it's too late.

Everyone always wants to know where an author gets their ideas and the story behind this one is kind of a whopper! Gross himself was pulled over on book tour and led through a particularly strange line of questioning thanks to mistaken identity. Fortunately his incident didn't turn out anything like Dr. Steadman's!

Trust me (and the many, many others who have said it) when I say this is definitely a one-sitting read. The pacing is excellent and the intensity level of the story makes it the kind of read that you literally can't put down.
