Synopses & Reviews
When Philadelphia narcotics detective Doyle Carrick loses his mother and step-father within weeks of each other, he gains a 20-day suspension for unprofessional behavior and instructions to lay low at the unfamiliar house he s inherited in rural Pennsylvania. Feeling restless and out of place, Doyle is surprised to find himself falling for his new neighbor, Nola Watkins, who s under pressure to sell her organic farm to a large and mysterious development company. He s more surprised to see high-powered drug dealers driving the small-town roads dealers his bosses don t want to hear about. But when the drug bust Doyle s been pushing for goes bad and the threats against Nola turn violent, Doyle begins to discover that what s growing in the farmland around Philadelphia is much deadlier than anything he could have imagined. Quick, clever, and terrifying, Jon McGoran s Drift is a commercial thriller in the tradition of Nelson DeMille s Plum Island.
