"A heart-pounding new Stevens and Windermere thriller from the award-winning author ofa The Stolen Ones and aThe Professionals . a Kirk Stevens and Carla Windermere of the joint BCA-FBI violent crime task force have handled shocking cases before, but this one is different. Stevens's daughter, Andrea, is distraught over a classmate's suicide, but what the two investigators find is even more disturbing-an online suicide club of unhappy teenagers, presided over by an anonymous presence who seems to be spurring them on. Soon, it becomes apparent that the classmate wasn't the first victim-and won't be the last, either, unless they can hunt down this psychopath once and for all.a Praise for Owen Laukkanen'sa The Stolen Ones 'From start to finish,a The Stolen Onesa is a fast-moving and satisfying thriller. Laukkanen is a first-class storyteller.' Kirkus Reviews a 'Laukkanen is gifted at creating relatable characters, and readers will happily tear through it. The combination of breakneck pacing, scarily plausible evils, and steadily rising stakes culminates in an explosivea finale.' Booklist a 'Savage, cathartic . . . Laukkanen deftly mixes sharp social criticism with bleak white-knuckle suspense.' Publishers Weekly a 'Fans ofa The Professionalsa will be delighted. Here it is not the criminals who are intriguing, but rather the victims who turn out to be far stronger and more remarkable than originally anticipated. Recommended for fans of well-written, thought-provoking thrillers.' Library Journal a 'Intense and fast-paced, with an intriguing storyline. An insightful look at morality and greed (in) an action-packed plot.' Blackfive a 'Here is my one-word review ofa The Stolen Ones - Whoa. Owen Laukkanen is rapidly becoming the king of the one-night reads.a The Stolen Onesa will make you a believer. You will also wonder why Laukkanen is not a household name in the constellation of thriller authors. Read this one (and his backlist) and spread the word. These books are amazing.'a "
