From the author of the award-winning debut crime novel "Good Neighbors"-a white-knuckle thriller about the lengths a man will go to for his daughter.

" The phone rings. It's your daughter. She's been dead for four months. "

So begins East Texas police dispatcher Ian Hunt's fight to get his daughter back. The call is cut off by the man who snatched her from her bedroom seven years ago, and a basic description of the kidnapper is all Ian has to go on. What follows is a bullet-strewn cross-country chase from Texas to California along Interstate 10- a wild ride in a 1965 Mustang that passes through the outlaw territory of "No Country for Old Men" and is shot through with moments of macabre violence that call to mind the novels of Thomas Harris.
