Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"The New York Times bestselling master of suspense is back with a riveting thriller, as reward seeker Colter Shaw plunges into the woods and races the clock in a case where nothing is quite what it seems"-- Provided by publisher.
Allison Parker is on the run with her teenage daughter, Hannah, and Colter Shaw has been hired by her eccentric boss, entrepreneur Marty Harmon, to find and protect her. Though he's an expert at tracking missing persons--even those who don't wish to be found--Shaw has met his match in Allison, who brings all her skills as a brilliant engineer designing revolutionary technology to the game of evading detection. The reason for Allison's panicked flight is soon apparent. She's being stalked by her ex-husband, Jon Merritt. Newly released from prison and fueled by blinding rage, Jon is a man whose former profession as a police detective makes him uniquely suited for the hunt. And he's not alone. Two hitmen are also hot on her heels--an eerie pair of thugs who take delight not only in murder but in the sport of devising clever ways to make bodies disappear forever. Even if Shaw manages to catch up with Allison and her daughter, his troubles will just be beginning. As Shaw ventures further into the wilderness, the truth becomes as hard to decipher as the forest's unmarked trails...and peril awaits at every turn.

    Reward seeker Colter Shaw returns for a fourth outing (following Final Twist, 2021). This time, Shaw is hired to locate Allison Parker, an engineer who has disappeared with her teenage daughter, Hannah, but finding the missing woman proves more difficult than Shaw anticipated, and he makes his living finding people, including those who would prefer to stay hidden. Allison, however, knows how to use her technological skills to stay hidden. In addition, when Shaw discovers why the woman has gone into hiding and who is threatening her, he realizes he's stepping into some very dangerous territory. Though not as strong as Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme novels, the Shaw series has grown since its inception in 2019's The Never Game: in subsequent Shaw novels, Deaver has opened the character up, exploring his tumultuous past and giving him more depth. Each novel in the series has been better than the last, and this is the best one yet, with some seriously evil villains and some very nicely handled twists and turns. Keep 'em coming.
