She feared no one. Her heart had travelled to regions few could conjure in dreams. It was reflected in her photo ID card clipped to her chest. Her pretty face was a mystery. A glint of arrogance in her eyes that squinted slightly to offer a smile; a manifestation of righteous contempt for every injustice that had befallen her. It held a vengeful calm.

Jason Wade - 02 - Every Fear

### Review

"Pushes crackling suspense to the breaking point and beyond. . . a must read!" -- _Kay Hooper, New York Times Bestselling Author._

### Product Description

EVERY FEAR, is the second book in Rick Mofina's acclaimed new series, which debuted with THE DYING HOUR. The series introduced rookie crime reporter Jason Wade, and was not only a bestseller, but the International Thriller Writers selected The Dying Hour as a BEST PAPERBACK ORIGINAL FINALIST for a THRILLER AWARD.

With EVERY FEAR, Mofina takes suspense to a whole new level in a heart-pounding story that moves like a true crime case torn from today's headlines.

On an ordinary morning, Maria Colson takes her baby son Dylan to the corner store. She only turns her back for a few seconds. When she looks again, she sees his empty stroller, at the same time he is being abducted into a waiting van. Maria climbs onto the van, but is violently thrown to the road where she is left for dead as the van vanishes without a trace.

As Maria fights for her life and her anguished young husband keeps a beside vigil, The FBI and police across metro Sea-Tac and Washington State, search for Dylan.

Across the city, Seattle Mirror reporter Jason Wade is under a lot of pressure to bring in a big story, and the Colson kidnapping could be it. It’s certainly a bizarre case with pieces that just don’t add up: The Colsons are a hard-working couple. Former high school sweethearts. No problems. No enemies.

Then Jason and his dad, a private detective haunted by his former life as a cop, discover a grisly murder of a young woman that is somehow connected to the Colsons.

Now, in a dark Seattle underground of desperate dreamers and ex-convicts, Jason, embarks an investigation that parallels one led by Homicide Detective Grace Garner.

They're both hunting for the one piece of the puzzle that connects the baby’s disappearance with a sping-tingling case of revenge. And time is running out, because whoever took little Dylan Colson is more dangerous than anyone could ever imagine.
