On a serene summer Sunday, a routine admission for a run-of-the-mill surgery at Atlanta's Emory Hospital goes tragically wrong, setting off a catastrophic wave of destruction that sends the facility and the surrounding area into lockdown. One of the city's largest and most prestigious institutions, Emory is situated near the Centers for Disease Control, the FBI counter-terrorism headquarters, and a large children's hospital. Anything that happens there has repercussions for the entire city, the state of Georgia, and possibly the entire nation. A few miles away, medical examiner Sara Linton is enduring an awkward lunch with her mother, her aunt, and her boyfriend Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. But the sudden wail of sirens blaring in the distance cuts the uncomfortable get-together short, drawing her and Will to the scene. Within an hour the situation at Emory has spiraled out of control-Sara has been taken prisoner and Will forced undercover, on a case in which thousands of lives are at stake. That "routine admission" at Emory was the opening maneuver in a perilous game of hunter and prey that leads him out of Atlanta into the Appalachians, to a remote compound where a radical group has hatched a diabolical plan for murder on a massive scale that will rock the nation if it isn't stopped.

*Starred Review* The latest entry in the Will Trent series (and the first since The Kept Woman, 2016) is cause for celebration by fans of Slaughter, in particular, and of crime fiction in general. A month after Michelle Spivey, an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control, is kidnapped, explosions are set off at Emory University. Arriving at the scene, Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) agent Will Trent and Sara Linton, GBI medical examiner and Will's lover, are stopped at an odd accident scene, where attackers assault Will and abduct Sara. Bereft at his failure to stop the attack and still in severe pain, Will perseveres to do whatever it takes to save Sara. But he's up against the Invisible Patriot Army (IPA), a paramilitary white nationalist group led by a pedophile known as Dash, who plans to send a message to the nation that will cause countless casualties. As the narrative moves between law-enforcement officers and the secluded IPA camp, and time becomes critical, the depth of the relationship between Will and Sara is also vividly portrayed. With familiar characters, further developed here, and a plot as timely as it is riveting, Slaughter's latest will enthrall her ever-growing legion of fans.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Slaughter's thrillers have become near-automatic best-sellers, and this is one of her best.
