Out of Reach

by Patricia Lewin

In her acclaimed debut Blind Run, Patricia Lewin proved her brilliant command of heart-stopping tales of suspense-and the staggering human emotions that go with them. Now in Out of Reach, Lewin returns with a gripping new thriller-a beguiling story of a man and a woman entering a battle against an unseen evil . . . the kind that targets the most innocent among us.A rising star in the CIA, Erin Baker is driven by a tragedy from her past. When she was a child, her eight-year-old sister, Claire, was kidnapped. Though Claire was miraculously found, she was changed forever. As was Erin, who now just might get what she's always wanted most: the chance to make a difference in someone's life. But she must be willing to risk everything she holds dear.A covert officer overseas, Erin now works stateside in the world's most sophisticated intelligence-gathering organization. But her life takes an unexpected turn when she spots an ice cream vendor performing magic tricks for kids. She has seen this man before-the day her sister disappeared. Obtaining access to records few are allowed to see, Erin pries open her sister's cold kidnapping case. With her arsenal of data banks and espionage techniques, Erin hopes to finally bring the criminal to justice. When a boy disappears near her home, Erin is certain there is a link between the two cases. She meets Alec Donovan, an FBI agent on the hunt to find the missing child, whose record for locating missing children is unquestioned. Suddenly Alec and Erin find themselves on a desperate pursuit-from the streets of America's most peaceful neighborhoods to a horrifying underworld where children are stolen and trafficked. And as they get closer to the truth, they make their own lives, and the lives of everyone they love, into perfect targets for a killer.With its deeply-drawn characters, relentless pace, and powerful depiction of human courage in the face of danger, Out of Reach is a gritty, terrifying novel of a nerve-wracking race against time. With echoes of today's most shocking headlines, this is fiction at its most passionate and suspenseful.
