Trust No OneLarge Print - 2009 | Large print
At 17, Nick Horrigan made a mistake that he believed resulted in the death of his stepfather -- a federal agent -- and put his mother at great risk. Twenty years later, Nick has created a safe, quiet life for himself, but his tranquility is shattered when a SWAT team bursts into his apartment while he's asleep and takes him to a waiting helicopter. A terrorist has seized control of a nuclear reactor, and insists that the he'll only talk is Nick.
Nick is certain that the man being labeled a terrorist is no one he has ever known -- but he doesn't think he has much choice but to cooperate. When, as instructed, he hands a ringing cell phone to the man at the nuclear site, the ensuing explosion kills the man, but doesn't severely harm Nick. Suddenly, everyone wants to make Nick a hero -- and that includes both presidential candidates. Nick smells a rat. He's not a kid anymore, and this time, he's going to stay and fight back. As he faces the horrors that two decades of lies, and secrets created, he remembers the dying words of his stepfather: Trust No One . . .
