In this electrifying thriller—a bestseller in Great Britain
and Ireland—Alex Barclay creates a stunning array of
contrasts—from the violence of a cop’s world to the
fragility of an embattled marriage, from the danger of New
York’s gritty streets to the quiet of a seaside Irish
village. With brilliance and subtlety, Barclay delivers a
nerve-wracking tale of a troubled family, facing a brutal
danger rushing relentlessly out of the past.
One year has passed since a kidnapping drama exploded into
violence on a New York street. And for NYPD detective Joe
Lucchesi, the memory of that terrible moment is still
alive. Joe’s wife, Anna, has brought him and their teenage
son to Ireland, hoping to repair their fragile marriage—and
cut the cord between Joe and the job. But when the
girlfriend of their son vanishes, Joe begins to suspect
that the crime may have its roots in his old life—and that
someone has followed him all the way there….
An outsider in Ireland, Joe watches with rising
apprehension as local cops try to solve the disappearance—
and then reacts with fury when his son becomes the leading
suspect. Frantically, Joe tries to piece together clues to
the crime, certain that a predator has come to Ireland in a
twisted act of vengeance. And in a culture he doesn’t
understand, among people who may or may not be his friends,
Joe must find a way to strike back…against a vicious killer
who has Joe’s family in his sights....

mounting dread, Alex Barclay’s ingenious tale of a family
under siege ratchets up the suspense one shocking
