The master of the "thrill ride between covers" (Los Angeles Times) delivers a suspenseful cat-and-mouse tale that unfolds in real-time and gives a harrowing look at the consequences of heartless evil.
When a 911 call from a secluded Wisconsin vacation house is cut short, off-duty deputy Brynn McKenzie leaves her husband and son at the dinner table and drives up to Lake Mondac to investigate—and walks right into a nightmare when she stumbles upon the scene of an atrocious, gruesome murder. Brynn realizes that the perpetrator hasn’t left the crime scene yet, but it’s already too late to call for backup—dense woods surround the house, and there is nowhere for her to run but into the hostile Wisconsin wilderness.
The Bodies Left Behind is filled with Deaver’s signature twists and turns, where nothing is what it seems, and death lingers just around the next curve on a deserted path deep in the midnight forest.
Jeffery Deaver is the bestselling author of The Broken Window, The Bone Collector, The Blue Nowhere, The Empty Chair, and many other novels of suspense. A former lawyer, he lives in North Carolina.
