Atlanta is about to host the Olympics for a second time, a rare but not unheard of turn of events. Hopes and tensions are running high, but a dramatic crime steals the headlines just days before the games begin. A Hollywood film star is thrown off a forty-sixth floor balcony and impaled on the tower mast of a TV news live truck. News crews, on hand to cover a pre-Olympics gala, capture the gruesome scene live.
Don Farmer and Chris Curle spin a tale of murder and mayhem in the midst of the Atlanta Olympics. Their collective news backgrounds set the stage for this fast paced thriller that will be noted as one of the best books of the year.
