In this dramatic new novel following the bestselling The Dark Tide, a drive-by shooting rocks the posh suburb of Greenwich, Connecticut, and an innocent bystander is left dead. Detective Ty Hauck plunges into what seems like a vicious case of retribution and follows the trail to a sinister gambling scheme at an upstate casino. Until Annie Fletcher, a young restaurateur in the midst of rebuilding her life, witnesses something she shouldn't have-and immediately runs to him with what she knows. Suddenly, Hauck is pulled into a rising storm far greater than it first appeared-a storm wide enough to encompass corruption inside Greenwich's circle of wealthy and powerful citizens. And punishing enough to consume Hauck's own family, and tear brothers apart forever . . . if it doesn't kill them first.Don't Look Twice is a gripping story of profiteering on an international scale and an emotionally resonant domestic thriller from one of the hottest new talents in suspense fiction.
At the start of bestseller Gross's twisty second thriller to feature Ty Hauck (after The Dark Tide), the Greenwich, Conn., police detective gets caught in a shooting at a local service station. A young man wearing a red bandana leans out a car window and fires: he nicks Hauck; kills David Sanger, a federal prosecutor; and wounds others. Was Hauck the target? Was it a hate crime directed at the Pakistani who owned the gas station? Or was Sanger the target? As Hauck investigates, potential leads evaporate or end in blind alleys. When the triggerman is shot dead in the Dominican Republic, the Greenwich police chief suggests Hauck should consider the case closed. Hauck decides to continue, despite increasing pressure to desist from many quarters, including the FBI and the owners of the Pequot Woods Resort and Casino. Hauck does "look twice," with results that will change his life radically, though some readers may doubt the wisdom of the choice he makes at the end. 10-city author tour. (Mar.)
