It should be impossible: Brady is confined to a hospital room in a seemingly unresponsive state. But Brady Hartsfield has lethal new powers. And he's planning revenge not just on Hodges and his friends; but on an entire city. The clock is ticking in unexpected ways... BRADY IS BACK. AND SO IS HODGES. The extract above is abridged from End of Watch.
