2 starred reviews!

“This is a compulsive, nail-biting, stay-up-all-night thriller.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“As always, Lee builds tension superbly, but here he adds the extra element of parceling out information from past and present in ever-so-small increments, creating exquisite dramatic irony as we know just enough more than the protagonists do to twist our stomachs into ever-tightening knots. Breakneck pacing, of course, but somehow Lee manages to build character and create an audacious premise without ever taking his foot off the throttle.“–Booklist, starred review

From the author of RUNNER, Sam Dryden comes under attack from unknown forces as an unremembered episode from his past threatens more than just his life.
