Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Greg Rucka has earned a devoted following for his edgy Atticus Kodiak thrillers, Finder, Keeper, and Smoker. Now, in an electrifying new suspense novel, Rucka puts us in the heart and brain of Kodiak's friend and lover, Bridgett Logan, a young woman living life on her own terms — and living it on the edge.

It began with a promise made to a friend, made when they were both teenagers. Now, years later, the friend wants to collect. All Bridgett Logan has to do is keep her word and the vow she made: commit a murder. Now two men are desperately trying to find Bridgett.

One to save her. The other — to kill her.

Review:

"[A] palpable sense of danger drives the narrative....[A] breathless barrage of betrayal and brutality....[A] crime novel that, if not strictly realistic, possesses a relentless and nearly irresistible force." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Review:

"First-rate suspense....Strong writing and intelligent plotting, but best of all are Rucka's characters: edgy, complex, interesting to a one. And [Bridgett] is a triumph." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Rucka's best yet, on all levels." The Dallas Morning News

Review:

"Edgy, complex — a triumph!" The Philadelphia Inquirer

Review:

"This is prime Rucka, deliberately paced and wound tight....This book will keep you awake until you've finished the last page. And maybe even after that." Statesman Journal (Salem, OR)

Review:

"A whiplash ride...with more turns than an Alpine highway." St. Petersburg Times

Review:

"Rucka stumbles slightly in the middle of the book, when he abruptly changes narrators, but he gets back on track when Bridgett returns to the center. This is a series to watch." Booklist
