How do you choose between catching a paedophile and defending your family?

It's Lucy Guardino’s first day back at work after she killed a man to protect her daughter. Little does she know she’s about to be thrown back in the deep end…

When serial child abuser ‘Daddy’ reappears wanting revenge on his first victim, June Bernhart, the FBI must scramble to protect her and track him down before it’s too late. But things are changing at the Bureau: Lucy’s team is being shut down, and this case – the most urgent and dangerous of her career – is supposedly her last.

How will Lucy protect June and her family from Daddy when he’s always two steps ahead? Gripping, dark, and relentlessly intense, the fifth Lucy Guardino thriller is a heart-stopping race against time as Lucy struggles to bring her most disturbing foe yet to justice.
