Description

"Neil Russell has to be one of the finest, skilled, and accomplished writers in the country, a true master of intrigue."-Clive Cussler Neil Russell introduced ex-Delta Force billionaire, Hollywood insider, and freelance avenger Rail Black in City of War-and the author immediately established himself as a magnum force to be reckoned with in the field of contemporary thriller fiction. Both Russell and Black are ready to blow you away again with Wildcase. Named for the FBI's term for crimes too savage and inexplicable to be easily categorized, Wildcase puts Rail Black on the trail of whoever brutally murdered an ex-cop friend and his wife in a town filled with cops-a path that will lead him into the grimiest shadows of "Sin City" Las Vegas and into the sinister machinery of a most unholy megachurch.

Back cover copy

In a desert town on the road between L.A. and Vegas, all hell has broken loose . . .

In a bedroom community populated by good cops and bad cops, a retired police officer and his wife have been brutally tortured and slain. A "wildcase" with no apparent rhyme or reason, it has caught the attention of the FBI . . . and Hollywood billionaire, ex-Delta Force operative Rail Black, who called the slaughtered pair his friends.

With his frighteningly efficient skills and more money than he could ever spend, Rail believes in helping people he cares about--even if it means clashing with the government's enforcers. But this wildcase has toxic tendrils rooted in a distant past, snaking through a shady megachurch, through Sin City, and into shadowy places halfway around the globe. And the precious blood already spilled is nothing compared to the deluge to come--with Rail's own added to the mix if he gets too close.
