Publishers Weekly Review
At the start of bestseller Kane's riveting seventh Forensic Instincts novel (after 2017's A Face to Die For), college student Lauren Pennington, on a junior year abroad, is kidnapped in Munich. Her abductors have been hired by someone who wants to obtain the technology that NanoUSA is about to release that will revolutionize the electronics industry. The company's v-p of manufacturing is Lauren's father, Vance. Vance is approached by Aidan Devereaux, whose job at the world's largest investment bank is a cover for his involvement in the Zermatt Group, a team of former analysts of the National Security Agency who monitor data for signs of possible global crises. Aidan, who determines that Lauren has been abducted, offers Vance his team's services to bring his daughter home safely. When the kidnappers contact Vance, they demand the technology be delivered within seven days, leading Aidan's team to undergo a dangerous, high-pressure investigation spanning three continents to locate and free Lauren. This thriller is a nail-biting adventure with a stunning conclusion. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
