Poised to Kill Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Poised to Kill

Extortionists present corporate executive Hal Dwyer with a nightmarish dilemma: turn over top secret anti-missile software from his defense contractor employer, or forfeit the life of his twelve-year-old daughter. To thwart the kidnappers, Dwyer sets out on a quest for answers that takes him from the boardrooms of southern California to the wilds of northern Minnesota, confronting a ruthless foreign tycoon, a treacherous corporate CEO, and a new, deadlier breed of terrorists, who are determined to turn America's defenses and freedoms against itself.
