Overview

Master of suspense Gregg Hurwitz returns with this gripping, fiercely inventive thriller featuring the return of The Kill Clause hero, deputy U.S. marshal Tim Rackley. The series that started it all! In this powerful follow-up to his action-packed thriller The Kill Clause, Gregg Hurwitz, the new maestro of pulse-pounding suspense, ratchets up the excitement with another sensational page-turner featuring Tim Rackley, a driven lawman motivated by honor, morality, and a deep sense of justice. Called back into the fold of the U.S. Marshals Service, Tim is tasked with retrieving Leah Henning, the daughter of a powerful Hollywood producer, from a mind-control cult. As Tim wends his way deep undercover into an insidious operation called The Program, he confronts a brand of mind-warping manipulation beyond his worst expectations. Tim becomes enmeshed with a diverse band of characters-from the charismatic, messianic leader T. D. Betters to a cult reject burnout to the intelligent yet highly vulnerable Leah herself-and finds himself caught in a shadowy landscape of lies, manipulation, and terror. At stake: innocent minds-maybe even his own. The series that started it all!
