Publisher's Summary

The Amazon Charts bestselling series continues as air marshal Seth Walker hunts a potential terrorist who could hold the key to the darkest chapter of his own past.

When an electrical engineer from one of America’s premier tech companies disappears inside the San Francisco International Airport before an overseas flight, air marshal Seth Walker is called in to investigate. With the clock ticking down and questions multiplying at every turn, Walker can’t afford to fail: the lives of all two hundred thousand passengers inside SFO may hang in the balance. 

As he races through crowded concourses, desperately searching for clues, Walker can sense this is no routine missing-persons case. But as he digs ever deeper into the young man’s background, the tangle of contradictions he finds is confounding. Is the engineer the victim of a crime...or the perpetrator of one? 

As the case forces Walker to confront his own demons and the reason he fled his former life in industry, finding this man may mean exposing his own darkest secret.

Critic Reviews

“…it is narrator JD Jackson's fast-paced narration that makes the latest Seth Walker mystery so enjoyable… He uses an assured tone in the present, while channeling Walker's mistrust of the tech world with a measured hesitancy that gives the audiobook its memorable voice.” (AudioFile Magazine)

“Reid’s explosive third Seth Walker novel (after 2019’s False Horizon)…maintains a frenzied pace throughout…Background about Walker’s previous career in high tech and what drove him away from the industry will please fans of the appealing Walker, who’s never short on opinion or emotion…” (Publishers Weekly)

“Reid’s third Walker yarn is a by-the-minute thriller, with roller-coaster action and authentic airport atmosphere.” (Kirkus Reviews)

More than a Good Thriller

Having listened to Joseph Reid's two previous books, I expected this one to be a good read, suspenseful, and with a bit of tech quirkiness. I was not disappointed. But to my surprise, by the end of the book I was in tears. In addition to being a great thriller, this is also a story that grabs you by the heart, candidly describing and evoking feelings of grief, guilt, confusion and hope that naturally arise from the protagonist's experiences. It's a good book, that transcends the usual limitations of the genre!
