Rick Mofina. No Way Back (2003) 384 pp. [pbo]
Publisher’s description: “San Francisco crime reporter Tom Reed is burnt out. The breaking story of a jewel heist gone violently awry—with the murder of a cop and the abduction of a female hostage—is one most journalists would kill for. Tom hopes it will be his last. But this time, there’s more at stake than a Pulitzer. Because the woman taken by the two homicidal fugitives is Ann Reed, Tom’s wife. And her capture wasn’t random...it was personal.”
Setting: San Francisco
