Once it was a swamp. Now Foggy Bottom is swimming with real-estate sharks. When a man is found stabbed to death in this trendy D.C. neighborhood, it is major news. But within fortyeight hours the nation is gripped by a fear that leaves this comparatively small crime in the dark.
Three passenger planes are shot out of the sky. Everywhere -- in law enforcement, in the media, and in the most secret realms of government -- men and women scramble to find out who shot handheld missiles at the planes and why. It is a search that reaches from Moscow to the Pacific Northwest, putting some people's lives in jeopardy and turning others' lives inside out. But no one can guess the truth: that the epicenter of the terrorist outbreak is Washington, D.C.... and a dead man behind a park bench in a place called Foggy Bottom.
This hardback book is in near new condition. The dust jacket has some edge wear and a small chip at the spine's bottom.
