A month later, on a sleepy Sunday afternoon, medical examiner Sara
Linton is at lunch with her boyfriend Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia
Bureau of Investigation. But the serenity of the summer’s day is broken by
the wail of sirens.
Sara and Will are trained to help in an emergency. Their jobs – their
vocations – mean that they run towards a crisis, not away from it. But on
this one terrible day that instinct betrays them both. Within hours the
situation has spiralled out of control; Sara is taken prisoner; Will is forced
undercover. And the fallout will lead them into the Appalachian mountains,
to the terrible truth about what really happened to Michelle, and to a remote
compound where a radical group has murder in mind…
