Life for private investigator Lizzy Gardner will never be the same. It's been three weeks since her fiancé, Jared, was shot on what was supposed to be their wedding day. He's in a coma now, and Lizzy is being forced to make a decision she might not be able to live with. But a string of deaths has forced her to get back to work. While they appear to be unrelated accidents at first glance, a closer look shows they all have something in common. More than a decade earlier, the victims were all members of the Ambassador Club at a Sacramento high school: a posh posse that bullied other students, one of whom remains tormented years later. In this pulse-pounding thriller from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author T.R. Ragan, Lizzy will need her colleagues and what's left of her wits to help her track down a cunning killer with a deadly revenge list before the next name--maybe hers--is crossed off for good.

Schoolteacher Faith McCann, the heroine of this searing first in a new crime series from Ragan (Evil Never Dies), returns one afternoon to her Sacramento, Calif., home to discover the members of her family bound and gagged: her husband, Craig, and their children, 10-year-old Lara and nine-year-old Hudson. The bad guys take the kids, slit Craig’s throat, and leave Faith for dead after a vicious beating. After a stint in a drug-induced coma and intensive care, Faith finds new purpose in searching for Lara and Hudson and their captors. Frustrated by the slowness of the official investigation, Faith assaults a police detective and winds up in court-mandated anger control classes, where under the sobriquet “Furious” she meets “Rage” and “Beast.” Rage and Beast become unlikely allies in her effort to penetrate the world of human trafficking, the evils of which are highlighted in chapters revealing what happened to Lara and Hudson. Readers with strong stomachs will eagerly await the next installment.
