[a Shane Scully Novel]Book - 2005
BETWEEN A COLD WAR
In Stephen J. Cannell's Cold Hit , Shane Scully has found his footing while his partner is going down in flames and a serial murderer rattles L.A. Each corpse has been mysteriously defiled. Then, in the middle of the hunt, Scully gets an idea that may cost him his life.
AND COLD, HARD TRUTHS...
Scully suspects that someone with inside information has neatly "hidden" one murder inside this messy serial killer case. His copycat theory ignites a crossfire between LAPD and the Feds.
IS A WHITE-HOT CASE OF MURDER.
Now Scully knows he has a ten-year-old cop-killing to clear, while two street-smart detectives lead him into a secret world of international espionage and a powerful counter-terrorism chief from the top of the U.S. government warns him away. To do his job, Scully must risk everything--unraveling the mystery of a Cold War act of betrayal, a brutal street crime, and a killer just waiting to hit again...
"As the case spirals outward from local crime to international espionage dating back to the 1980s, the action rarely lets up. When it does, we're reintroduced to the back story that is one of the pleasures of reading the Scully series."-- Los Angeles Times
