Bestselling novelist Kyle Mills took the nation by storm with his stunning debut thriller, Rising Phoenix, a powerful tale of intrigue and suspense that introduced maverick FBI agent Mark Beamon. Frederick Forsyth raved, "In the world of political thrillers, I have the feeling that young Kyle Mills will soon be a very big player." Now Kyle Mills returns with his most riveting story yet, an edge-of-the-seat drama featuring a new star -- female FBI employee Quinn Barry.

Bright, young, and ambitious, Quinn Barry desperately wants to be an FBI agent. Right now, though, she's just a low-level employee toiling in the basement at Quantico. But Quinn's career -- and her life -- are about to change wildly. Testing her new database program, Quinn turns up a mysterious DNA link among five gruesome murders. A link that the old FBI computer system had been carefully programmed to miss. The discovery lands her a demotion to the hinterlands, followed by a series of unfortunate "accidents" that nearly end her life.

Pitted against a conspiracy of unimaginable proportions, Quinn is determined to uncover what someone very powerful wants to keep hidden -- dark, dirty secrets involving high levels of government. She turns for help to her boyfriend, an ambitious young CIA agent, only to flee to protect herself and, she hopes, him. Finally an ally emerges from teh most unlikely place of all, and with his help Quinn will at last turn the tables on her shadowy assailants -- and land herself in the clutches of a sadistic, brilliant madman who holds the key to it all.

Bristling with the galvanizing suspense and hair-trigger action that Kyle Mills's fans have come to expect, Burn Factor is certain to carve another notch in bestseller lists nationwide.
