“As hard as nails, fast-paced, and precise.” —Playboy (Germany)
A school shooting in snowbound Vermont; an American journalist beheaded in war-torn Syria; a passenger jet exploding in the Thai jungle—everything connects to Kate Swift, CIA assassin turned whistleblower, on the run from a sinister intelligence unit.
With her six-year-old daughter, Suzie, she flees across the Canadian border to begin a perilous journey to Berlin and then Thailand in search of the only man who can keep them alive: Harry Hook, a disgraced ex–CIA case officer living rough in the wilderness, battling the bottle and ghosts from his past.
Can Hook conjure an inspired but desperate plan that will save Kate and Suzie and bring him the redemption he yearns for?

Fabian, battling political enemies and the creeping dementia that has him in its grip, is determined to silence Ash who has linked him to his wife’s murder. As he tracks his son through an American heartland scarred by poverty and opioid addiction, Ash has to confront a dark secret from his past even as he fights to save the boy’s life.
