The Mile Marker Murders follows Ty Bannister an FBI agent in two story lines. In the first, a friend of Bannister's, a CIA agent, disappears and there are questions about concerning the possibility of defection. Bannister insists Caleb Williamson would never betray his country.
The other story line has to do with the threat of a biological weapon being released if extortion demands are not met.
There are parts of the FBI investigation scenes that feel real and authentic, and these are the best part of the novel.
What detracted from an interesting plot was the lack of a believable motive, the implausible behavior of the villain, and an unconvincing love story.
