Publisher's Summary

Brandon Vale is a career thief, the best there is. Of course, he is serving out a prison term for a robbery gone bad, albeit one that he didn't commit. But then he is broken out of prison against his will by Richard Scanlon, the former FBI agent who framed him in the first place. Scanlon, who still has ties to the U.S. intelligence community, has discovered that a Ukrainian crime organization is auctioning 12 nuclear warheads to the highest bidder, but he can't convince the government that the sale isn't a hoax. The only way he can get his hands on the $250 million necessary to take the warheads off the market is to arrange for Brandon to steal it.

Not that Brandon has much choice: it's either do it or go back to jail with the added years of a failed "escape" tacked on to his sentence. He decides to get the cash by pulling off the heist he had been planning when he and Scanlon first met: hijacking the trucks that drive the casinos' cash out of Las Vegas once a week. As the day of the warhead sale approaches, though, their carefully constructed plan begins to break down, and Brandon starts to suspect that the deal has even higher stakes than he had imagined.

With this heart-stopping, all-too-real novel, Kyle Mills proves once again that he is one of the freshest and most original thriller writers working today.

Critic Reviews

"Mills entertains, but he's also capable of keeping readers awake at night contemplating the terrifying vagaries of an increasingly dangerous world." (Booklist)

Kyle Mills is The Best!

This book is so much fun! I would love a series with Brandon and Katherine. I began listening to Kyle Mills through the Mitch Rapp series! I had always loved Mitch Rapp but actually felt the writing get even better once Kyle took over so I began reading his first bokks prior to Mitch.
He showed his tremendous ability even as a young man. This book doesn't have the excellent quality that Kyle Mills produces now but is so much fun to read/listen to that I found I didn't mind. If you want a feel good book with plenty of action and fun narrating, give "The Second Horseman" a try.

Seems like a good story.

Storytelling seemed like it would have been ok. but the audiobook was abridged I guess. It made the story very generic with lots of gaps.
