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.


  • 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.

  • Not great

    By Keith Sk.
    Again, another unsatisfactory ending.
  • Atlee Pine series

    By J Atwell
    I really love this series and I love that he pulled John Puller into this one. The book is a fun read with some unexpected turns.
  • Not my favorite

    By Propertylover
    I found the book a bit too predictable. Like a bad movie script. I do generally like Baldacci but I found myself giving the story the old eye roll because it moved forward in the same way a b movie moves.
