by J. R. Maddux

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The Midas File details a dizzying mystery involving assassination, political corruption, organized crime, espionage and high treason that draw FBI Special Agent Price McLean into a vortex of deadly danger. As competing interests joust for control of the top secret document under lock and key at CIA headquarters, and all players continue to up their bids for it, the drama builds to a pulse pounding conclusion and the final, stunning revelation of the shocking secret it contains.
When two high-ranking federal officials are targeted for assassination, crack FBI Special Agent Price McLean is assigned to track down the perpetrators and bring them to justice. But his investigation soon leads him into a nefarious, jumbled maze of crime and malfeasance reaching into the highest echelons of government, and his dogged pursuit of those involved soon paints a target on his own back. McLean's chief suspect is Mafia don Giancarlo Pavone, head of New York's most powerful crime family. But Pavone has friends and allies in both high and low places, fueling a deadly mix of murder, espionage, bribery and power politics. At the center of the conspiracy is a top secret file locked away at the Central Intelligence Agency in Langley, Virginia. It has only been seen by the most senior officials in the U.S. government who have aptly named it "The Midas File," because it contains information that is the key to limitless power and wealth. Step by painstaking step, McLean pieces together the evidence leading toward exposure of the conspirators. As one chilling discovery leads to the next, the question becomes one of whether McLean will live to make his arrests. And whether he lives or dies, what will become of the mysterious file?
