"An American government official dies suddenly in a Washington restaurant, but the coroner cannot determine a cause of death. When a second bureaucrat dies, Metro detective Av Smith discovers that both were members of a committee known only as DMX. DMX operates in total secrecy, and its mission is to target foreign terrorists for elimination. Detective Smith is determined to pursue both murder cases, even if it means butting heads with Carl Mandeville, the alpha wolf of DMX. As Smith delves deeper and deeper, he finds himself the target of a plot that goes well beyond DMX- and reaches into the darkest areas of the government. Set in contemporary Washington, D.C. amidst the immense counter-terrorism bureaucracy, Cold Frame is a compelling thriller by a masterful novelist with insider knowledge of how the military, federal, and local intelligence"--
"The downtown area of today's Washington, D.C., has become an armed camp. Men with assault rifles crouch on top of monuments and buildings. Anti-missile sites bristle on the White House roof. Meter maids carry Glocks and tactical radios, all in the name of federal CT: counterterrorism. In Cold Frame, the dramatic new thriller by P. T. Deutermann, a secret committee of government and civilian officials puts names on the Kill List, which targets overseas threats to America for termination. When a senior bureaucrat who is part of the Kill List process dies in Washington under mysterious circumstances that include a beautiful woman, a glass of wine, and a bouquet of flowers, Metro detective Av Smith is tasked to investigate. Smith and his fellow detectives soon find themselves besieged by a hornet's nest of intrigue and deception. With the aid of an FBI agent and a reclusive scientist who nurtures unusual interests, Av digs deeper into the mystery--only to become the target of a plan that reaches into the highest levels of the federal government, and far exceeds the mission of the Kill List itself. Set in contemporary Washington, D.C., amidst the Byzantine counterterrorism bureaucracy, Cold Frame is a compelling thriller by masterful novelist P. T. Deutermann, whose insider knowledge of how the military, federal, and local intelligence agencies work--or don't--illuminates the dark world of Washington's War on Terror"--
