Rucka breaks the rules!

Read one of today's most surprising and satisfying thriller writers.

Greg Rucka has earned a devoted following for his edgy Atticus Kodiak thrillers, Finder, Keeper, and Smoker. But now, in an electrifying new suspense novel, Rucka puts us in the heart and brain of Kodiak's friend and lover, Bridgett Logan, a young woman living life on her own terms, and living it on the edge.

Private investigator Bridgett Logan has shared a great deal with Atticus Kodiak since they were brought together by a case. But there are secrets she has never shared--the dark story of a nightmare that began when she was sixteen--and has never really ended. It will only take a single moment of weakness to tear down the facade and the life she has struggled to build. One moment of weakness--or one rash promise to help an old friend.

Lisa Schoof knows the life Bridgett has escaped--from the inside out. Her struggle to overcome her past has come at an even higher cost--and with higher stakes. For Lisa wants to give her young son a life untouched by the horrors she has known. She will do anything to attain that one goal, at any cost to herself--or her friends.

To help Lisa, Bridgett must return to the hellish landscape of her past, into a dangerous world where death is a final mercy. But she has sworn Atticus will never know about the life she has put behind her, and so Bridgett walks alone, without backup, without explanation, vanishing from view. It's a decision that may cost her dearly. For by the time Atticus learns why Bridgett has dropped from sight, it may be far too late....

In Shooting at Midnight, Greg Rucka proves once more that he is writing some of the most authentic, electrifying thriller fiction in America today. A novel of complex personalities, nonstop action, and bravura plotting, this is the most remarkable work yet from a writer who allows his characters to walk the razor's edge--and makes his readers care.
