Harper Flynn survived the shootout and fire that destroyed the club where she tended bar—an attack that killed her boyfriend. A year later, she’s trying to move on, but is tormented by the certainty that one of the shooters escaped. The cops don’t believe her. Nobody does, except Detective Aiden Garrison—and he suffered a head injury in the attack, damaging his memory and causing a rare kind of face blindness. When Harper spots someone stalking her, she and Aiden are the only people who understand that a killer has returned. It’s up to them to track him down, because he's targeting people who witnessed the attack, and nothing will stop him from killing again.

What happens when going off the grid is no longer an option?

Sarah Keller is a single mother to five-year-old Zoe, living quietly in Oklahoma. She’s also a skip tracer, an expert in tracking people who’ve gone on the lam to avoid arrest, prosecution, or debt—pinpointing their locations to bring them to justice. Then an accident reveals that Sarah has been living a lie. She takes Zoe and goes on the run herself. She’s being hunted not only by a sinister religious cult but also the FBI... what on earth can this young mother have done to lure so much destruction into her world?

Can her knowledge as a skip tracer help her stay off the grid, remain one step ahead of her pursuers, and find a way to save her daughter?
