The Cates family is equally powerful, influential and brutal, and it's coming after Joe with everything it's got. Back in the day, he managed to deliver a deadly blow right at their heart when they threatened his daughter's life. However, he always knew that they won't let it "slide" and has been preparing for their retaliation.
The time of wondering is over: Pickett knows these animals are coming after his family, and there's nothing he won't do to protect them. Nate, his trusty partner, is standing with him, but will the two men be able to defeat a fierce enemy like that? All they can do right now is stay calm, count their prayers and prepare. Joe can't make the first move, as that would compromise his whole operation. He needs to wait for them to step out of the darkness and to show their faces. Only then will he strike.
The past always comes back to haunt you, and Joe will have to use the experience and the skillz to try and protect the ones he loves and holds dear to heart. This is by far his greatest threat, and if he fails to prevail, everything will be lost. Will the hero find a way to put a stop to the Cates fam, or is it already too late for him? C. J. Box is back with a blood-chilling and heart-pounding new thriller that you won't be able to put down.
