Publisher's Summary

From the #1 bestselling author of the Harry Bosch and the Lincoln Lawyer series and who "is the master of the universe in which he lives" (Huffington Post), comes the gripping novel that inspired the film starring Clint Eastwood.

When Graciella Rivers steps onto his boat, ex-FBI agent Terrell McCaleb has no idea he's about to come out of retirement. He's recuperating from a heart transplant and avoiding anything stressful. But when Graciella tells him the way her sister, Gloria, was murdered, Terry realizes he has no choice. Now the man with the new heart vows to take down a predator without a soul. For Gloria's killer shatters every rule that McCaleb ever learned in his years with the Bureau-as McCaleb gets no more second chances at life...and just one shot at the truth.

Edge of your seat thriller!

Nice twists and turns, with a satisfying ending. Great characterization of even secondary people, like Buddy on the next boat. Highly recommended for a long read when you have time to settle in and hunker down.

Spooky!

I guess I read (and listen to) too many suspense/murder novels, because I found right from the start, that there was something definitely wrong with that witness.

Of course I could never have imagined all those twists and turns.

The book kept my attention and the reader was great.

Very enjoyable if you love procedurals

I enjoyed this book more than I expected, I think I got it on a daily deal. It is very detailed and procedural but not at all in a dry way, I was interested all the way through. My main complaint is that the main female/love interest character was completely one-dimensional and that really irritated me.

The narrator was very good.
