Excerpt from Hot Ice by Cherry Adair
August 10 San Cristobal South America
Dressed in black, shrouded by the night, T-FLAC opera- tive Huntington St. John melded with the darkness of the fetid alley behind the adobe jail. Night vision glasses made it possible to observe every inch of the inky interior of the cell through a narrow barred window high in the wall.
Where in the hell was the prisoner?
It had taken six long, bloody months to discover this woman's identity. Six months, and the considerable resources of the counterterrorist organization Hunt worked for. It hadn't been easy, by God, and he was not leaving without her.
He needed a thief. Someone resourceful, cunning, and unscrupulous. Someone at the top of his game. Hunt wanted the best. Nothing less would do.
Determined to find the right thief, T-FLAC's crack team had scrutinized past burglary victims for the last five years. Limiting their search to individuals, or companies, with collections of fine gems who had the most sophisticated, advanced security systems. They'd compiled lists comprising thousands upon thousands of names. They'd cross-matched friends of the victims, relatives, staff, and lifestyle to find a common denominator.
