Mike Yeager, an FBI agent with a gift for profiling, is no angel, yet somehow the Bureau has always found a way to forgive him his mistakes. Now, even though he’s in disgrace, there’s a job that only he can do. In New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, a couple was kidnapped; the husband---a spy---was tortured and killed, and now the wife is in danger.

Normally the Bureau might ask Yeager to lead a rescue mission, but this time, they want him to pose as a fallen agent---a broken wing---infiltrate the group responsible, and wait to see what he can learn. The kidnappers are thought to be working for Emelio Barca, one of the most powerful crime bosses in New Orleans, and the target of Mike’s past botched case.

Mike sees this opportunity as his last chance, even though it’s bound to wreck his renewed relationship with fellow agent Peggy Weaver, maybe for good. He’s gone undercover once before in his career, and that time his mistakes led to Barca’s escape and the maiming of Mike’s first partner. This time he vows Barca won’t get away. One way or another, Yeager’s career will come full circle in the Big Easy, the city where it all began.

Broken Wing is a breathtaking page-turner from a writer who seems to have mastered the genre in only three novels.

Praise for Broken Wing

Praise for Thomas Lakeman

“Two elements elevate Lakeman. First, he gets the characters right. . . . Lakeman creates people so real, you either want to save them, sleep with them, or send them to prison. Second, Lakeman makes you turn the pages. . . . It’s a gift similar to Dan Brown’s, but unlike Brown, Lakeman can really write, not simply plot.”
---Cleveland Plain Dealer

“The very definition of a page-turner.”
---Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on Broken Wing

“An atmospheric, action-filled story . . . Many dark corners fill Chillwater Cove, even when the sun seems to be shinning.”
---South Florida Sun-Sentinel on Chillwater Cove

“The pace is fast and the prose often tasty. . . . Lakeman is also trying . . . to speak the truth about a region that arouses his love, his anger, and his sorrow.”
---The Washington Post on Chillwater Cove

“When a debut novel like The Shadow Catchers by Thomas Lakeman comes on like gangbusters . . . it's like watching a rookie pitcher on the way to a no-hitter.”
---The Boston Globe on The Shadow Catchers

“Thomas Lakeman had me hooked to the end, where the plot twisted like an Olympic diver.”
---The Charlotte Observer on The Shadow Catchers
