The youngest lawyer ever to grab the helm of Seattle's most prominent law firm, Gus Wheatley has found success-as well at money, power, and prestige. He thinks nothing can interfere with his meteoric rise to the top. Until his wife, Beth, vanishes.

Beth's disappearance coincides with a series of brutal murders the FBI dubs the "bookend killings." They think Beth isthe killer's latest victim... or his willing accomplice. But Gus knows his wife would never ally herself with a cold-blooded killer. The further he searches, however, the more he discovers that Beth isn't the woman he thought he knew.

Beth may be alive. She may or may not be innocent. She may have come up against evil far more reaching than a serial killer. And for Gus and his family, that evil is much too close to home.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Powerful…undeniable a page-turner.

    Miami Herald

  • “Grippando’s yarns are always refreshing for several reasons. His characters are well drawn but not excessively detailed; his plots are intelligently conceived and executed; and he avoids many of the cliches of this genre. Here, for instance, the lawyer is working with a tough, attractive female FBI agent, but, for a change, we aren’t treated to the usual sexual-tension, will-they-or-won’t-they subplot.


  • “Ron McLarty performs this creepy thriller with consummate skill and unerring characterizations. Grippando creates emotionless killers, and McLarty brings these monsters to life. Evil and death abound as McLarty brings every mind-twisting detail to the listener.
