Captain Jim Vaughn is a government agent known for performing missions no one else wants. So when an old colleague approaches him with an assignment, he can't refuse––even if the mission has been set in motion by a dead man's letter, found in Antarctica and dated 1949. The Citadel has been cracked, and the only man who can safeguard it is Vaughn. Nothing short of the fate of mankind rests on his shoulders.
When a routine bank visit goes horribly wrong, Jake and his girlfriend, Elizabeth, are caught in the midst of an armed robbery.
The criminals? They call themselves The Crimsons. One of the most notorious groups of armed robbers in the country, whose reputation precedes them.
And now they've just chosen their next victim.
Alone and afraid, Jake must protect himself at all costs, while saving others in this fight or flight situation.
Will Jake succeed, or will The Crimsons fire their first-ever shot in this survival race against time?

Your Friendly Author,
Interview with the author, Jack Probyn
Q - Can Jake Tanner be compared to any other crime thriller heroes out there?
A - You know, I wouldn't say Jake Tanner is like any of the other crime thriller heroes currently out there. He's not like the Jack Reachers' or the Alex Cross' of these worlds. Sure, he has some similar characteristics, but Jake Tanner is very unique. Jake is a very heavily family-centered man. Anything and everything he does is done for them. But this does, in no way, mean that he is like Alex Cross who, readers familiar with James Patterson's star, will know is a lean, mean, fighting machine. Instead, Jake Tanner is simply an everyday man. The one you see on the train to and from work everyday. That's what makes Detective Jake Tanner different.
Q - What makes the Detective Jake Tanner series special?
A - A mix of things. I wanted something that would "Wow!" readers, something that is going to make them think, "What if that ever happened to me?" And so I mirrored the Jake Tanner series on something I would like to read myself. The Jake Tanner terror thriller series has a bit of everything. But all of them feature the big question: "What if…" And, once you've read them, you'll never feel the same way about certain things again.
