Summary

A secret buried in an open grave returns to haunt a small Pennsylvania town in an action-packed thriller by the New York Times–bestselling author . . . When divers discover an antique car with a skeleton inside, the Beacon Group dispatches TK O’Connor to lead the investigation into the sixty-year-old cold case. It’s TK’s first chance at lead investigator, and the former Marine is determined not to let her team down. But almost as soon as she arrives in the downtrodden rustbelt Pennsylvania town, her challenges mount. First, there’s the issue of identifying the man inside the car. Who was he and why did he seemingly drive off a cliff into a quarry, leaving no trace of his life behind? Then there’s the brewing racial tension in the city. A white police officer is on trial for shooting a black man and the verdict is due any minute. When a second killing occurs, TK suddenly finds herself at the center of a new investigation while the town literally explodes around her. As protesters storm the once peaceful town, it’s up to TK and her boss, Lucy Guardino, to untangle the truth, both past and present. But is the truth powerful enough to stop the violence before anyone else is killed? “Combine Dirty Harry with a loving wife and mother and you might end up with Lucy Guardino.” —RT Book Reviews “A compelling new voice in thriller writing.” —Jeffery Deaver, New York Times–bestselling author of The Never Game

    Like a cross between Denis Johnson's Already Dead and David Lynch's Blue Velvet, Reap draws us into the hot, still air of a summer backwoods at whose fringes lurk danger and epiphany. Jessup Burke, a lonely, naive sixteen-year-old, has grown up without a father in a jobless, indifferent logging town. Out of high school a year early, he now bikes through the woods with his fishing gear, daydreaming of his sweetheart and their secret "home" in an abandoned farmhouse. When Reg, an embittered, paranoid recluse fresh out of jail for growing marijuana, encounters Jessup hitchhiking, he is at first drawn to the boy's easily manipulated naïveté, but the two soon become irreversibly bound. As Jessup unknowingly participates in Reg's perilous, criminal behavior, he also endangers himself when his relationship with Marigold, Reg's younger, married sister, goes beyond friendship.Jessup's rude awakening into adulthood is rendered in sure and supple prose in this dramatic, action-packed novel.
