Edwin Kreiss is a former FBI agent whose discovery of a Chineseespionage ring made him a lot of enemies and resulted in his early retirement.Now his daughter is missing, and nobody, least of all a junior G-woman namedJanet Carter, is going to keep him from finding her. Browbeating the one clue toher disappearance out of a terrified college student, Kreiss follows hisdaughter's trail to a deactivated federal arsenal in southwestern Virginia,where a fanatic whose son was immolated at Waco is cooking up a plan to blow theATF to bits. Kreiss is uniquely qualified to play his role as hunter-in-chief. He's beentrained as a "sweeper," a job title that refers to the cleanup of rogue agentsand other enemies of the state, and he took a few high-tech search-and-destroygoodies with him when he was prematurely put out to pasture by his formeremployers. Now another sweeper wants to put him out of action, and JanetCarter's getting conflicting signals from her own superiors about just how muchcooperation they're willing to give Kreiss as he sets out to rescue hisdaughter--and, incidentally, redeem his own troubled past.P.T. Deutermann is a skillful writer who knows how to tell a story. This brisklypaced thriller almost turns the pages by itself. Carter, the ostensible heroineof the novel, never quite extinguishes her ambivalence about either Kreiss orthe agency she serves, an attempt at multidimensionality of character that'smore confusing than revealing. The ending hints at a continued relationshipbetween them, but it's Kreiss, rather than Carter, who engages the reader'sattention and whose future we really care about. --Jane Adams
