Will Trent è considerato uno dei migliori agenti del Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Eppure, quando una studentessa del college locale viene brutalmente assassinata, il suo supervisore Amanda Wagner lo tiene fuori dal caso. Will non riesce a comprenderne il motivo fino a quando i due non si incontrano in un orfanotrofio abbandonato: il luogo in cui Will aveva trascorso la sua infanzia dopo che la madre era stata uccisa e il padre incarcerato per omicidio. I due detective scopriranno presto che ciò che li lega non è solo un rapporto di lavoro, ma una traccia sepolta a metà degli anni Settanta, quando Amanda era una giovane agente di polizia alle prese con un ambiente ostile alle donne e Will un bambino che stava per perdere tutti i suoi sogni. Una traccia che dovranno seguire e affrontare, a costo di aprire ferite che sembravano rimarginate, per impedire che l’orrore del passato li travolga di nuovo.

"Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda's motivation until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before, when his father was imprisoned for murder, this was Will's home. It appears that the case that launched Amanda's career forty years ago has suddenly come back to life--and it involves the long-held mystery of Will's birth and parentage. Now these two dauntless investigators will each need to face down demons from the past if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed."--Back cover.

In Ben Sanders's American Blood, a former undercover cop now in witness protection finds himself pulled into the search for a missing woman; film rights sold to Warner Bros with Bradley Cooper attached to star and produce. After a botched undercover operation, ex-NYPD officer Marshall Grade is living in witness protection in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Marshall's instructions are to keep a low profile: the mob wants him dead, and a contract killer known as the Dallas Man has been hired to track him down. Racked with guilt over wrongs committed during his undercover work, and seeking atonement, Marshall investigates the disappearance of a local woman named Alyce Ray. Members of a drug ring seem to hold clues to Ray's whereabouts, but hunting traffickers is no quiet task. Word of Marshall's efforts spreads, and soon the worst elements of his former life, including the Dallas Man, are coming for him. Written by a rising New Zealand star who has been described as "first rate," this American debut drops a Jack Reacher-like hero into the landscape of No Country for Old Men.
