The blistering new novel from the author of the multi-award-nominated The Professionals

When you’ve got nothing left, you’ve got nothing left to lose. In Cass County, Minnesota, a sheriff’s deputy steps out of a diner on a rainy summer evening, and a few minutes later, he’s lying dead in the mud. When BCA agent Kirk Stevens arrives on the scene, he discovers local authorities have taken into custody a single suspect: a hysterical young woman found sitting by the body, holding the deputy’s own gun. She has no ID, speaks no English—a mystery woman. 

The mystery only deepens from there, as Stevens and Carla Windermere, his partner in the new joint BCA–FBI violent crime task force, find themselves on the trail of a massive international kidnapping and prostitution operation. Before the two agents are done, they will have traveled over half the country, from Montana to New York, and come face-to-face not only with the most vicious man either of them has ever encountered, but two of the most courageous women. They are sisters, stolen ones. But just because you are a victim doesn’t mean you have to stay one.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Here is my one-word review of The Stolen Ones: Whoa. Owen Laukkanen is rapidly becoming the king of the one-night reads…Read this one (and his backlist) and spread the word. These books are amazing.”


  • “[A] fast-moving installment. Here it is not the criminals who are intriguing but rather the victims who turn out to be far stronger and more remarkable than originally anticipated. Recommended for fans of well-written, thought-provoking thrillers.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Breakneck pacing, scarily plausible evils, and steadily rising stakes.”


  • “A fast-moving and satisfying thriller starring a likable if unlikely duo…The two agents have worked together before, and if there’s justice in the literary world, they will team up on many more cases.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Edoardo Ballerini’s performance of this thriller is like watching a tightrope walker working without a net. You can see that the balance is perfect, and yet you can’t tell why it works. Assured and quiet, Ballerini rolls out the story, simply paying attention to the meaning and diction of every word, the pacing of every sentence…The higher the tension on the page, the more effective Ballerini’s no drama delivery becomes. And he does a killer Romanian accent.”
