Hard to Find
The instant New York Times bestselling thriller from the “master of ticking bomb suspense” (People) who created Lincoln Rhyme and Kathryn Dance is “a tour de force…the suspense never flags” (Kirkus Reviews).
When a 911 call from an isolated vacation house on Lake Mondac is cut short, off-duty county sheriff’s deputy Brynn McKenzie leaves her husband and son at the dinner table to investigate—and walks into a scene of true horror. A visiting Milwaukee couple has been shot dead. Brynn, quickly connecting with the lone survivor of the carnage, realizes the perpetrators—two professional criminals—haven’t left the crime scene. Unable to call for back-up, deprived of her gun and car, Brynn and her charge escape into the hostile wilderness in a terrifying cat-and-mouse chase. Will Brynn be the next victim?
