Just returned from assignment in Afghanistan, reporter Dawson Scott is still struggling with the emotional effects of what he encountered. Before he is fully recovered Dawson is given the opportunity to cover the latest development in an unresolved case that has lain dormant for forty years.

Marine Jeremy Wesson disappeared and has been presumed dead all these years. The biological son of two terrorists on the FBI's Most Wanted list, Wesson (his fate, and also that of his parents) is again of interest to the bureau.

As Scott begins poking around, he meets Wesson's ex-wife Amelia, and a relationship between the two develops. But a shocking turn of events occurs when Amelia's nanny turns up dead and the reporter becomes one of the suspects.

With even more at stake now, Scott intensifies his investigation into the Marine's disappearance and the new search for a set of notorious killers who have gone untouched for decades. The closer he gets to finding them, the closer Scott comes to uncovering some secrets about his own past.

Sandra Brown's romantic suspense stories have been translated into 34 languages and sold over 80 million copies worldwide. Just as with her previous books, this latest Brown thriller is certain to land on the bestseller lists. If you haven't read any of her novels before, now is as good a time as any to become familiar with her work. After reading Deadline, you'll probably want to begin working through her lengthy backlist of titles.
