What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

22 seconds… until Lindsay Boxer loses her badge – or her life.

SFPD Sergeant Boxer has guns on her mind.

There’s buzz of a last-ditch shipment of drugs and weapons crossing the Mexican border ahead of new restrictive gun laws. Before Lindsay can act, her top informant tips her to a case that hits disturbingly close to home.

Former cops. Professional hits. All with the same warning scrawled on their bodies.

You talk, you die.

Now it’s Lindsay’s turn to choose.

Critics Review

  • No one gets this big without natural storytelling talent – which is what Jim has, in spades.

    LEE CHILD, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series
  • Patterson boils a scene down to a single, telling detail, the element that defines a character or moves a plot along. It’s what fires off the movie projector in the reader’s mind.

    MICHAEL CONNELLY
  • James Patterson is the boss. End of.

    IAN RANKIN, bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus series
