In this powerful follow-up to his action-packed thriller The Kill Clause, Gregg Hurwitz ratchets up the excitement with another page-turner featuring Tim Rackley, a lawman motivated by honor, morality, and justice.
Called back into the fold of the U.S. Marshals Service, Tim is tasked with retrieving Leah Henning, the daughter of a powerful Hollywood producer, from a mind-control cult. As Tim wends his way deep undercover into an insidious operation called "The Program," he confronts a brand of mind-warping manipulation beyond his worst expectations.
Tim becomes enmeshed with a diverse band of characters -- from the charismatic, messianic leader T. D. Betters to a cult reject burnout to the intelligent yet highly vulnerable Leah herself -- and finds himself caught in a shadowy landscape of lies, manipulation, and terror. At stake: innocent minds -- maybe even his own.
Performed by Dylan Baker

A shocking suicide in the La Brea Tar Pits serves as the prologue to this well-realized thriller about a mind control cult and the efforts of former deputy marshal Tim Rackley to rescue the stepdaughter of a Hollywood producer with political aspirations from its clutches. Rackley’s Rambo-esque vigilantism in the wake of his own daughter's violent death got him cashiered from the marshal's service, but Will Henning has enough clout to get Tim temporarily reinstated to the service--at least, until he manages to return Leah Henning to her family. But the only way to get into the heavily guarded compound controlled by the mysterious cult leader known as the Teacher is for Tim to go undercover as a willing initiate, a potentially deadly masquerade that brings him face to face with the demons that have haunted him since childhood. A sharp, tense, multidimensional novel that will keep the reader turning the pages until the bloody end, The Program more than measures up to the previous titles in Hurwitz's series featuring series hero Rackley ( The Kill Clause). --Jane AdamsAbout the Author:
