<b>FBI Agent Atlee Pine returns to her Georgia hometown to investigate her twin sister's abduction, only to encounter a serial killer in this page-turning thriller from the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author.</b><b><br /></b>FBI Agent Atlee Pine's life was never the same after her twin sister Mercy was kidnapped--and likely killed--thirty years ago. After a lifetime of torturous uncertainty, Atlee's unresolved anger finally gets the better of her on the job, and she finds she has to deal with the demons of her past if she wants to remain with the FBI.<br /><br /> Atlee and her assistant Carol Blum head back to Atlee's rural hometown in Georgia to see what they can uncover about the traumatic night Mercy was taken and Pine was almost killed. But soon after Atlee begins her investigation, a local woman is found ritualistically murdered, her face covered with a wedding veil--and the first killing is quickly followed by a second bizarre murder.<br /><br /> Atlee is determined to continue her search for answers, but now she must also set her sights on finding a potential serial killer before another victim is claimed. But in a small town full of secrets--some of which could answer the questions that have plagued Atlee her entire life--digging deeper into the past could be more dangerous than she realizes . . . <br /><br />

<b> The eighth book in the <i>NYT</i> bestselling Expanse series, <i>Tiamat's Wrath </i>finds the crew of the <i>Rocinante</i> fighting an underground war against a nearly invulnerable authoritarian empire, with James Holden a prisoner of the enemy. Now a Prime Original series.</b><b><br /></b>Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, the mysteries and threats grow deeper. <br />In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets, Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened before the first human beings existed, and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable. But the price of that knowledge may be higher than she can pay.<br />At the heart of the empire, Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father's godlike ambition. The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cort謾zar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue, but Teresa has a mind of her own and secrets even her father the emperor doesn't guess. <br />And throughout the wide human empire, the scattered crew of the <i>Rocinante</i> fights a brave rear-guard action against Duarte's authoritarian regime. Memory of the old order falls away, and a future under Laconia's eternal rule -- and with it, a battle that humanity can only lose -- seems more and more certain. Because against the terrors that lie between worlds, courage and ambition will not be enough...<br /><b>The Expanse</b><i>Leviathan Wakes</i><i>Caliban's War</i><i>Abaddon's Gate</i><i>Cibola Burn</i><i>Nemesis Games</i><i>Babylon's Ashes</i><i>Persepolis Rising</i><i>Tiamat's Wrath</i><b><br />The Expanse Short Fiction</b><i>The Butcher of Anderson Station</i><i>Gods of Risk</i><i>The Churn</i><i>The Vital Abyss</i><i>Strange Dogs</i>

<b>Introducing a remarkable new character from #1 New York Times bestselling writer David Baldacci: Atlee Pine, an FBI agent with special skills assigned to the remote wilds of the southwestern United States who must confront a new threat . . . and an old nightmare.</b><br /><br /><i>Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Catch a tiger by its toe.</i><br /><br />It's seared into Atlee Pine's memory: the kidnapper's chilling rhyme as he chose between six-year-old Atlee and her twin sister, Mercy. Mercy was taken. Atlee was spared. <br /><br />She never saw Mercy again.<br /><br />Three decades after that terrifying night, Atlee Pine works for the FBI. She's the lone agent assigned to the Shattered Rock, Arizona resident agency, which is responsible for protecting the Grand Canyon. <br /><br />So when one of the Grand Canyon's mules is found stabbed to death at the bottom of the canyon-and its rider missing-Pine is called in to investigate. It soon seems clear the lost tourist had something more clandestine than sightseeing in mind. But just as Pine begins to put together clues pointing to a terrifying plot, she's abruptly called off the case. <br /><br />If she disobeys direct orders by continuing to search for the missing man, it will mean the end of her career. But unless Pine keeps working the case and discovers the truth, it could spell the very end of democracy in America as we know it...<br /><b>"Love it!" --Lisa Gardner</b><b>"Atlee Pine is unforgettable." --James Patterson<br /></b><b>"David Baldacci's best yet." --Lisa Scottoline <br /></b><b>"Heart-poundingly suspenseful." --Scott Turow<br /></b><b>"A stunning debut." --Douglas Preston <br />"A perfect blend of action, secrets, and conspiracies." --Steve Berry<br />"Baldacci is at the top of his game." --Kathy Reichs</b><br />
