[SR: 318819], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780312335779], St. Martin's Press, St. Martin's Press, Book, [PU: St. Martin's Press], 2005-05-12, St. Martin's Press, The government abandoned him. Now they're asking for his help.But they're not going to like his answer.A secret department of Homeland Security is recruiting agents to work undercover in the Middle East, and the director wants his second-in-command, Matt Egan, to bring aboard an old friend, Salam Al Fayed-better known as Fade.He seems perfect for the job: A New Yorker and ex-Navy Seal, he is the son of immigrants and he speaks perfect Arabic. Trouble is, he's "retired;" he got shot in the back in the line of duty, and the U.S. government refused to pay for the risky surgery that could have helped him. Now Fade lives the life of a hermit, walking around with a bullet lodged near his spine and liable to shift at any moment, and the last thing he wants to hear is that his country needs him-least of all, his ex-best friend Matt Egan, whom he sees as responsible for his present condition.Against Egan's wishes, the director forces the issue and tries none too subtly to "persuade" Fade to join the team. But Fade, angry and hopeless, is prepared to fight back at any cost; the ensuing confrontation is a bloody one. And the chase is on-will Matt be able to find his friend-turned-fugitive before Fade can take the ultimate revenge?Fade is a remarkable, take-no-prisoners read from an unparalleled writer at the height of his talents., The government turned its back on Salem Al Fayad after the first Gulf War, but now that Homeland Security needs "Fade's" particular skills, they attempt to recruit him again. He's not only not interested, but he's nursing a very big grudge, and the ham-fisted tactics they use to reel him back in don't help defuse his anger. There's a bullet lodged in Fade's spine that could have been removed years ago, but the feds wouldn't pay for it then and it's too late now, so Fade's got nothing to lose but his life, and that's not worth very much to him now. His old friend and teammate Matt Egan tried to help him then, but now he's charged with bringing Fade in, dead or alive. Both Fade and Egan are appealing characters--if there's a villain here, it's Egan's new boss, and Matt is torn between his loyalty to Fade, his duty to a superior officer he despises, and his fears for his own family's safety. Mills expertly ratchets up the tension page by page and chapter by chapter in a better than average thriller marked by fine charicaterizations, superior pacing, and a strong narrative in which the bonds of friendship are brilliantly delineated and the two men at the center of the action linger in the reader's mind after the expectable but still compelling denouement. Mills gets better and better, and Fade is timely enough to break him out of the midlist and win him a new legion of fans. --Jane Adams, 17, Literature & Fiction, 5391236011, Ancient & Classical Literature, 5391237011, Anthologies & Literary Collections, 10016, British, 10399, Classics, 10129, Contemporary, 2159, Drama, 10141, Erotica, 10108, Essays & Correspondence, 16260301, Foreign Language Fiction, 10134, Genre Fiction, 10177, Historical Fiction, 10204, History & Criticism, 4465, Humor, 10132, Literary, 5391238011, Mythology & Folk Tales, 10248, Poetry, 10300, Short Stories, 9822, United States, 542654, Women's Fiction, 10311, World Literature, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10493, Spy Stories & Tales of Intrigue, 10484, Thrillers, 18, Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10495, Suspense, 10484, Thrillers, 18, Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
