"Six Seconds" by Rick Mofina
A Canadian Mountie, Dan Graham, pulls a dying girl fom a river. Her last words send him on a search to find her father, a conspiracy theorist reporter.
In California, Maggie Conlin searches for her husband, an Iraq war contractor, who has disappeared with her son Logan.
Samara Ingram, an Iraqi-British nurse takes steps to avenge the deaths of her husband and son.
Mofina brings these three stories together in this well-crafted and timely thriller about a plot to assassinate the Pope in Montana. This book held my interest from the beginning and was impossible to put down as it reached the climax.
This is the first book I've read by Rick Mofina, but will probably not be my last.
