A girl missing in New York. A political bombing in Iceland. No ordinary cop would see a connection. But Detective First Grade Brian McKenna didn't earn his reputation by being ordinary. In Once In, Never Out, McKenna travels the globe in pursuit of his darkest foe yet--a terrorist bomber whose next target could be New York's St. Patrick's Day Parade.
