"Final Target is an action packed debut thriller with a unique plot and vivid characters."

-Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author of Fugitive

Author Steven Gore is the real deal-a private investigator with three decades of international experience-and he makes a serious splash with Final Target. An intelligent, gripping, unputdownable story of corporate and political corruption, conspiracy, and murder that careens around the globe at breakneck speed, Final Target recalls the best work of Richard North Patterson as it captivates with authentic detail. Cornelia Read, author of The Crazy School, describes Gore's exceptional debut as, "James Bond for grownups," while New York Times bestseller Sheldon Siegel (Judgment Day) calls it, "Lightning paced, deftly plotted, and compulsively readable." Read it and see what the excitement is all about.

Back cover copy

A man lies unconscious in a hospital bed, the victim of a violent assault the police are calling "road rage." If he recovers, prosecutors are waiting to indict him for conspiracy, eager to send him to prison for the rest of his life.

And he's the lucky one . . .

Private investigator Graham Gage believes the injured man--his closest friend Jack Burch--had no part in the ever-widening criminal conspiracy surrounding the collapse of defense contractor SatTek Industries. But Gage's search for the truth is rocketing him to hot spots around the globe--and dragging him into a deadly morass of lies, greed, and terror alongside traitors, killers, and international gangsters. As the plot slowly unravels the body count soars, and Gage finds himself in an impossible race to prevent the unimaginable.

Because the first target was his friend . . . but the final target is his country.
