The Survivor

In his first hour back from a six-month leave of absence, Detective Jacob Striker's day quickly turns into a nightmare. He is barely on the scene five minutes at his daughter's high school when he encounters an active shooter situation. Three men wearing hockey masks - Black, White, and Red - have stormed the school with firearms and are killing indiscrimintately. Striker takes immediate action.

Within minutes, two of the gunmen are dead and Striker is close to ending the violence. But before Striker can react, the last gun man - Red Mask - escapes. Against the clock, Striker investigates the killings for which there is no known motive and no suspect. Soon his investigation takes him to darker places, and he realizes that everything at Saint Patrick's High is not as it appears. The closer he gets to the truth, the more dangerous his world becomes.

Until Striker himself is in the line of fire.

The Survivor is a thrilling debut novel by a real-life Vancouver cop, and the first in the Jacob Striker series.

Sean Slater

Sean Slater is the pseudonym for Vancouver Police Officer Sean Sommerville. As a police officer, Sommerville works in Canada's poorest slum, the Downtown East Side - an area rife with poverty, mental illness, drug use, prostitution, and gang warfare. He has investigated everything from frauds and extortions to homicides. Sommerville has written numerous columns and editorials for the city newspaper. His work has been nominated for the Rupert Hughes Prose Award, and he was the grand-prize winner of the Sunday Serial Thriller contest, which was co-written by Daniel Kalla and published in the Vancouver Province. When not patrolling the 'Skids', Sommerville is working hard on Stone Cold, the second novel in the Jacob Striker series.
