The blistering new novel in James Patterson's no.1 bestselling series set in Australia.
Detective Harriet Blue is in prison. For murder...
But now Deputy Police Commissioner Joe Woods is offering her a ‘get out of jail free’ card.
His daughter Tonya and her two-year-old child are missing and he needs Harry’s expertise – and willingness to go outside the law – to find them, fast.
So Harry walks out of the prison gates – and straight into a deadly game. Because although Tonya has a top cop for a father, she also has some dangerous friends.
It might have been safer if Harry had stayed inside . . .
"James Patterson is the boss. End of."
