In this gripping mystery, an FBI Agent’s search for her sister clashes with a military investigator's high-stakes case, leading them both deep into a global conspiracy—from which neither of them will escape unscathed.
For many long years, Atlee Pine was tormented by uncertainty after her twin sister, Mercy, was abducted at the age of six and never seen again. Now, just as Atlee is pressured to end her investigation into Mercy's disappearance, she finally gets her most promising breakthrough yet: the identity of her sister's kidnapper, Ito Vincenzo.

With time running out, Atlee and her assistant Carol Blum race to Vincenzo's last known location in Trenton, New Jersey—and unknowingly stumble straight into John Puller's case, blowing his arrest during a drug ring investigation involving a military installation.

Stunningly, Pine and Puller's joint investigation uncovers a connection between Vincenzo's family and a breathtaking scheme that strikes at the very heart of global democracy. Peeling back the layers of deceit, lies and cover-ups, Atlee finally discovers the truth about what happened to Mercy. And that truth will shock Pine to her very core.


  • Keeps it lively!

    David Baldacci has a gift of dialogue, excellent description of landscape and locations, and the way he develops his characters in his novels keeps you turning the pages. He throws in enough surprise and plot twist to keep any good crime mystery reader thoroughly engaged. Wonderful page turner.
  • Same ‘ol same ‘ol

    By TexasBrady
    Based on tired old stereotypes of Congress, often uninformed or wrong in its accuracy. Too bad. great writer, excellent characters, good narrative to carry the series.
  • Scattered story line

    By ronr7021
    Improbable events to bring the story together. If a ADHD author on mushrooms took acid and then had a dream. Unfortunately this got published and I paid for it. Not again. Ron R
  • Another Home-run for Baldacci

    By LB Whitney
    I loved the newest book in the Amos Decker series. And to bring Will Robie and Jessica Reel into the story was such a surprising and awesome development. When I got to that part I knew I would love this book. David Baldacci is my favourite mystery crime thriller author. I’ve loved all his novel series and the majority of his standalones. I can’t wait for the next novel in the series.

    Too much of a flight from reality

    Can’t wait for the next one!!
  • Just OK.

    By Salty Broad
    The stilted dialogue was distracting. Pine’s MMA moves read like a bad action movie . It’s all just a little much. I prefer a more carefully crafted plot with deeper character development.
  • As Riveting and Current as any novel out there

    By Jim Cooke
    David Balducci is a master of the high crime and misdemeanors novel. He slays with Attlee Pine and I like the way he incorporated “Superman” Puller into this one. Awesome and well worth the price.
  • The ending is not what you may think it is.
