Abstract:

A freak subway accident traps a New York architect in a deadly conspiracy that will threaten what he loves most John T. Camber is waiting on an uptown subway platform the moment his life changes forever. It happens quickly, when a haggard elderly man utters a sudden plea for help before falling on the tracks in front of an oncoming train. Reeling from the accident, Camber flees the station, only to be accosted by a brass-knuckled thug who believes Camber knows more than he & rsquo;s letting on. And just like that, the suburban commuter finds himself inextricably trapped in a deadly conspiracy beyond his understanding. Dangerous people are after Camber, and if they can & rsquo;t get to him, they & rsquo;ll target his daughter instead. ... Tense and action-packed, Alice is a stunning thriller about a man caught in events beyond his control, who will stop at nothing to protect his family. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author & rsquo;s estate.
