Abstract:

Award-winning author Brad Parks delivers "a perfect piece of entertainment" (Steve Berry), a deliciously tense novel of thrills, twists, and deceit that will keep readers riveted. Struggling stage actor Tommy Jump knows he has to stop chasing applause and start chasing greenbacks. But then he's offered the role of a lifetime: $150,000 for a six-month acting gig. With a newly pregnant fiancée depending on him, it's an opportunity he can't refuse, even though the offer comes from the strangest employer imaginable: the FBI. The feds won a small victory when they arrested Mitchell Dupree, a banker who has spent the past four years laundering money for New Colima, one of the deadliest cartels in Mexico and a major supplier of crystal meth in the US. But Dupree has documents that could lead to arrests of high-ranking members of New Colima, including their fearsome leader, El Vio ... if only he'd tell the FBI where they are. Using a false name and backstory, Tommy will enter Dupree's low-security prison as a felon and get close to the banker in the hopes that he'll reveal the documents' whereabouts. But when Tommy arrives, he quickly realizes that he's underestimated the enormity of his task and the terrifying reach of the cartel. Because the FBI isn't the only one looking for the documents, and if Tommy doesn't play his role to perfection, it just may be his last act.

Struggling stage actor Tommy Jump is offered the role of a lifetime: $150,000 for a six-month acting gig. The employer? The FBI. They arrested Mitchell Dupree, a banker who has spent the past four years laundering money for New Colima, one of the deadliest cartels in Mexico and a major supplier of crystal meth in the US. But Dupree has documents that could lead to high-ranking members, including their fearsome leader, El Vio. Using a false name and backstory, Tommy will enter the low-security prison and get Dupree to reveal the documents' whereabouts. But the FBI isn't the only one looking for the documents, and this just may be Tommy's last act. -- adapted from information provided.
