“Everything a great thriller should be – action-packed, authentic, and intense” Lee Child on CJ Lyons’ Rock Bottom

Lucy Guardino still feels like the new kid on the block among her tight-knit team at Beacon Falls cold case unit… until a young woman with memory loss shines a spotlight on one of Lucy's team members.

Tommy Worth left his job as an emergency ward doctor to join the Beacon Group after his wife went missing, leaving him to raise their five-year-old daughter alone. Now the press is hounding him on the anniversary of her disappearance. Distracting himself with work at Beacon Falls fails miserably, after the woman he is trying to help becomes the target of an anonymous stalker.

When you can’t even recall who you are, how do you know who to trust? Or who to run from?

Devil Smoke is the eighth Lucy Guardino novel, but they can be read out of order. If you enjoy gripping suspense, intelligent storytelling, strong characters and a freight-train pace, then you'll love this adrenaline rush of a crime thriller from “a master of the genre”.
