Summary

Bombs, bullets and the remote jungle - and America's coolest covert agent Jake Fonko is up to his neck in it all. 
Army Ranger Jake Fonko's latest mission - locate a former CIA asset gone missing in Cambodia - has his instincts on full alert. He might be a decorated soldier, but he's certainly no international spy. 
But Jake, ever the loyal warrior, agrees to the CIA's directive. But no sooner has he crossed the border into Phnom Penh when the bloodthirsty Khmer Rouge roars into town. And as Jake fights to survive in the jungle warzone, the dots begin to connect, all pointing to a startling truth. 
Maybe that CIA asset was never really missing at all. 
For fans of fun, fast-moving adventures, the Jake Fonko series seamlessly blends well-researched 20th century history with equal parts white-knuckle thrills, satirical humor and explosive action. If you like Ian Fleming (Bond), John D. MacDonald (Travis McGee), George MacDonald Fraser (Flashman) or Clive Cussler (Dirk Pitt), you'll enjoy the Jake Fonko series.   
NOTE: This is a standalone novel that can be fully enjoyed without reading any other books in the Jake Fonko series.

    THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 
    In her enthralling debut, Gilly Macmillan explores a mother’s search for her missing son, weaving a taut psychological thriller as gripping and skillful as The Girl on the Train and The Guilty One. 
    In a heartbeat, everything changes… 
    Rachel Jenner is walking in a Bristol park with her eight-year-old son, Ben, when he asks if he can run ahead. It’s an ordinary request on an ordinary Sunday afternoon, and Rachel has no reason to worry—until Ben vanishes.   
    Police are called, search parties go out, and Rachel, already insecure after her recent divorce, feels herself coming undone. As hours and then days pass without a sign of Ben, everyone who knew him is called into question, from Rachel’s newly married ex-husband to her mother-of-the-year sister. Inevitably, media attention focuses on Rachel too, and the public’s attitude toward her begins to shift from sympathy to suspicion. 
    As she desperately pieces together the threadbare clues, Rachel realizes that nothing is quite as she imagined it to be, not even her own judgment. And the greatest dangers may lie not in the anonymous strangers of every parent’s nightmares, but behind the familiar smiles of those she trusts the most. 
    Where is Ben? The clock is ticking...

    A teaching assistant knows that a man named John is out to kill him—but which John is it? Mervyn Gray sits at the college coffee shop scowling at his notes. The waitress assumes he’s just another overworked Berkeley undergrad, but she is dead wrong. Gray is a teacher’s aide fighting for his life. Two days ago, he was nearly poisoned. Yesterday, a bullet missed him by inches. Unless he can guess who is trying to take him out, and why, Gray will be dead by tomorrow. He has heard that his assailant is named John—but there are too many Johns to choose from.   One John is a philandering librarian, another a lustful accountant. One is a disreputable fashion photographer, and the last is a half-baked campus poet. All four are in love with Mary Hazelwood—and she has been missing for a week and a half. All Gray knows is that any of the Johns could be responsible, and he’s the next target on the murderer’s list.
