Few authors get the blood pumping faster than the inimitable Karin Slaughter and her latest thriller is a breakneck ride into terror, mystery and the dark heart of the American dream. A missing daughter sparks an investigation that takes in radical activists and a gripping showdown in the Appalachian mountains.
From the No.1 bestselling author comes a gripping new crime thriller featuring Will Trent and Sara Linton
It begins with an abduction. The routine of a family shopping trip is shattered when Michelle Spivey is snatched as she leaves the mall with her young daughter. The police search for her, her partner pleads for her release, but in the end...they find nothing. It's as if she disappeared into thin air.
A month later, on a sleepy Sunday afternoon, medical examiner Sara Linton is at lunch with her boyfriend Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. But the serenity of the summer's day is broken by the wail of sirens.
Sara and Will are trained to help in an emergency. Their jobs - their vocations - mean that they run towards a crisis, not away from it. But on this one terrible day that instinct betrays them both. Within hours the situation has spiralled out of control; Sara is taken prisoner; Will is forced undercover. And the fallout will lead them into the Appalachian mountains, to the terrible truth about what really happened to Michelle, and to a remote compound where a radical group has murder in mind...
