FBI agent Tyler Bannister has a problem: actually he has a couple of problems. When his good friend Caleb Williamson, a career officer with the CIA, disappears officials are trying to decide if he is some type of spy who may have defected or whether he was a victim of a crime. Although Bannister is concerned for his old friend, his main focus is on catching an extortionist who has threatened to unleash a biological weapon if a 5-million dollar demand is not met. After catching a break, Bannister’s team is quickly able to catch the would-be terrorist. But, when Williamson turns up dead alongside the corpses of two women near a northern Virginia highway, Bannister is assigned to a task force to identify what appears to be the work of a serial killer. Bannister and the task force are obsessed with finding the murderer before he strikes again, but unfortunately a fourth body is discovered. Can Bannister and the team end this reign of death, or will the killer continue leaving bodies by the roadside?
"The Mile Marker Murders" is a well-thought out, well-written novel. The characters are defined and realistic. The plot moves along at a quick pace and the police procedures are sound. The start of the story is actually three plotlines and could have been a tad confusing but the author is able to nicely tie them all together. The end is very good, leaving the reader with the expectation of things to come in the life of FBI Agent Ty Bannister. Very nicely done.
