Don't Look Twice by Andrew Gross

In this explosive follow-up to 2008's The Dark Tide, Andrew Gross continues the story of Greenwich, Connecticut lieutenant Ty Hauck, only this time, the case gets personal.

Trying to enjoy one of the few weekends Ty gets to spend with his daughter, they make a pit stop at a local gas station before heading to the dock. While the two are at the check-out line, all hell breaks lose. A crazed man in a red banana rushes in shooting up the place and makes a quick getaway before Ty can get a full read on the plates. The only causality happens to be a federal prosecutor.

A few leads suggest a gang seeking revenge, but Ty suspects the shooting of the federal employee is a front for something bigger. What he discovers about the case leads him to the Pequot Woods casino, where a powerful security pit boss acts as the hands to an even more powerful that will do anything to protect its own, no matter who ends up dead.

While working on the case, Ty's estranged older brother, Warren, is suddenly back in his life. Ty is happy to reconnect with his brother and having family around can be a comfort, unless, of course, that person happens to be involved in a deadly cover-up.

After co-writing five books with James Patterson, Gross has struck out on his own in this third entertaining effort. Thriller fans looking for an unstoppable character who will do whatever it takes to uncover the truth need look no further than Ty Hauck in Don't Look Twice.
