A wealthy man has been abducted—but it’s not his money the kidnappers are after—in this inventive thriller by an Edgar Award–winning author.

Devlin’s beat is usually organized crime, but now he’s been called to the home of Jennifer Keyes, a redheaded actress whose husband has gone missing. It’s not Devlin’s sort of case, but he finds Jennifer compelling so he agrees to help—and of course, handle the matter with discretion.

J. Walter Keyes’s lawyer insists his client is a virtual saint, so a drunken bender or affair is ruled out, and the hospitals have nothing to report. All signs point to kidnapping.

But as Devlin puzzles out the disappearance, looking deeper into Keyes’s background, he discovers this is no ordinary abduction. The man has been taken by a mysterious group known as the Eden Movement. And they have plans— not just for Keyes, but for the entire world . . .

“[A] superlative storyteller.” —Publishers Weekly
