The audacious new adventure of the At Risk team from
America’s #1 bestselling crime writer.
Patricia Cornwell introduced the quicksilver,
cut-to-the-bone style and extraordinary cast of characters
of At Risk, the result was electrifying: “At
Risk is Cornwell’s finest novel. It works in every way
possible— fascinating characters, solid plot, great pacing
and expertly crafted prose” (St. Louis
Post-Dispatch); “Absolutely the best. Here’s hoping
we’ll see more of Win, Monique, Nana and Sykes in the coming
years. They are the best characters to emerge from
Cornwell’s creative pen since . . . well, Kay Scarpetta”
(The Denver Post).
At Risk featured
Massachusetts state investigator Win Garano, a shrewd man of
mixed-race background and a not inconsiderable chip on his
shoulder; District Attorney Monique Lamont, a hard-charging
woman with powerful ambitions and a troubling willingness to
cut corners; and Garano’s grandmother, who has certain
unpredictable talents that you ignore at your peril.
And in The Front, peril is what comes to them all.
D.A. Lamont has a special job for Garano. As part of a new
public relations campaign about the dangers of declining
neighborhoods, she’s sending him to Watertown to “come up
with a drama,” and she thinks she knows just the case that
will serve. Garano is very skeptical, because he knows that
Watertown is also the home base for a loose association of
municipal police departments called the FRONT, set up in
order that they don’t have to be so dependent on the
state—much to Lamont’s anger. He senses a much deeper agenda
here—but he has no idea just how deep it goes. In the days
that follow, he’ll find that Lamont’s task, and the places
it leads him, will resemble a house of mirrors—everywhere he
turns, he’s not quite sure if what he’s seeing is
“Falsehoods rule,” warns his grandmother. And
they can also kill.
