From the number one New York Times bestselling coauthor of Judge & Jury and Lifeguard comes this electrifying solo debut, The Blue Zone.

Kate Raab's life seems almost perfect: her boyfriend, her job, her family . . . until her father runs into trouble with the law. His only recourse is to testify against his former accomplices in exchange for his family's placement in the Witness Protection Program. But one of them gets cold feet. In a flash, everything Kate can count on is gone.

Now, a year later, her worst fears have happened: Her father has disappeared—into what the WITSEC agency calls "the blue zone"—and someone close to him is found brutally murdered. With her family under surveillance, the FBI untrustworthy, and her father's menacing "friends" circling with increasing intensity, Kate sets off to find her father—and uncover the secrets someone will kill to keep buried.

Worse than the sniper fire is the emotional impact that hits clueless Kate ''like a fist in her abdomen,'' ''like a punch deep into her solar plexus,'' or ''like some meteor slamming into her.'' Oof!

Reviewing the Evidence

I always enjoy a well-researched novel so I must admit that Andrew Gross's obvious lack of adequate research on Type One diabetes, a condition of which I have a fair knowledge, had me squirming, since he chose as a protagonist Kate Raab, a lab researcher who just happens to suffer from the disease.
