He sucked in each breath and let it out like it would be his last. Through headphones a fast blast of words filled his ear canals and then flooded his brain. An array of sensors was strapped into a heavy cloth harness that was buckled over his torso. He also wore a cap with electrodes attached that measured his brain waves.

Roy is an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility in Maine. Roy is awaiting trial and almost certainly faces conviction.
On their to the first meeting with their employer, Bergin, they find him murdered on a lonely stretch of Maine road. There is one twist to the end and the novel does reach to the heights of power in Washington, D. If you like typical De Mille, Brad Thor, etc. If you like something deeper, try Olen Steinhauer. On the several hour drive from the airport to the remote town where they will be staying, they come across a car alongside a deserted stretch of highway.
Inside, is Ted Bergin with a bullet in his brain. Sean believes this to be murder and an attempt to stop the defense of Edgar Roy. Roy is accused of killing 6 people and burying them on his family farm.
What initially seemed to be a simple murder defense soon becomes a tangled and twisted intrigue involving national security, a struggle between government agencies and an assassination plot.
Even better, the personal demons that Michelle has struggled with for the first four books finally seem to have been vanquished and she has become an asset to the team rather than a liability.
Sean seems more trusting and open now that the relationship has improved and Michelle is less volatile. At this point, there is one more book in the series. I will definitely continue with this story.
