A gripping and enthralling follow-up to The Network (praised by Steve Berry as “mandatory reading for any thriller aficionado”), in which a conspiracy with far-reaching implications threatens to engulf our heroes.

It’s been almost two years since investigative reporter, Jack Logan, and television producer, Taylor Parks brought down the Institute—the secret facility responsible for indoctrinating a generation of America’s political and media power players. Their lives are just getting back to normal, and Jack and Taylor have settled into married life with their young son, Evan. The man who’d threatened their lives—Damon Crosse, is dead, and his evil plan for society thwarted.

But soon a series of bizarre murder/suicides capture Jack’s attention. When he begins to piece together the seemingly unrelated incidents, a disturbing pattern emerges. Could someone be intentionally causing people to become homicidal? Meanwhile, Taylor is producing a story about a class action suit against a national insurance company that has reached the Supreme Court. As Jack and Taylor uncover layer after layer, they start to suspect that their stories are connected and that there is something darker and more insidious at play.

When they make the shocking discovery that Crosse actually faked his own death, and is very much alive, Jack and Taylor must race against the clock to try and find him before he executes his new plan to take back control and destroy not only their lives,  but the future of the country.

“Revel in L.C. Shaw’s thriller, The Network. . . . Part Dan Brown, part Ira Levin, part Ian Fleming, part Steve Berry—and wholly terrifying—The Network displays Shaw’s talents, skills that enable her to produce nearly unbearable tension and multiple shocks as she seizes the reader and never lets go, not even on the final page.”

“Exhilarating . . . . From the opening pages to the thrilling conclusion, The Network is an intense and action-packed roller-coaster ride of emotions. . . . The suspense and intrigue is relentless from beginning to end. It has it all: political corruption, religious under tones, immorality, hidden treasures, historical artifacts, conspiracy, heart-pounding action, along with a cast of characters you’ll love and hate. The conclusion leaves the reader with a bit of a cliff-hanger and certainly wanting more.”
