In Daniel Palmer’s electrifying, brilliantly plotted new thriller, a private school campus becomes a battleground as a desperate father takes on a terrifying enemy....
When Jake Dent’s dreams of baseball glory fell apart in a drunk-driving incident, his marriage did too. In those dark days, a popular survivalist blog helped to restore Jake’s sense of control. He’s become an avid Doomsday Prepper, raising his diabetic son, Andy, to be ready for any sudden catastrophe.
Andy, now a student at the prestigious Pepperell Academy where Jake works as a custodian, has a secret—he’s part of a computer club that redistributes money from the obscenely wealthy to the needy. Usually, their targets don’t even realize they’ve been hacked. But this time, they’ve stolen from the wrong people: a vicious drug cartel that is coming to get its money back...
Staging a chemical truck spill as a distraction, the cartel infiltrates the Academy, taking Andy and his friends hostage one by one. Jake, hidden inside the school’s abandoned tunnels, knows that soon the killing will start. With his training, and a stockpile of weapons and supplies, he’s the last, best hope these students—including his son—have of getting out alive. But survival is no longer an abstract concept. It’s a violent, brutal struggle that will test Jake to the limit, where there are no rules and no second chances...

“This nail-biting tale is sure to get hearts pumping and bound to be a winner with fans of Greg Iles and Iris Johansen. The author is the son of deceased best-selling medical thriller author Michael Palmer, but he doesn’t need to ride on his father’s coattails. His suspenseful stories, full of twists and turns, are sure to win him a following of his own.” – Library Journal STARRED REVIEW for CONSTANT FEAR
“Palmer takes a straightforward kidnapping story and turns it into a compelling tale filled with not-so-typical heroes. Setting the action in a high school is risky, but Palmer pulls it off. Fans of Harlan Coben or Linwood Barclay will especially enjoy this one.”– Booklist on CONSTANT FEAR
“Extraordinary character development and more than a few bombshell plot twists will keep readers turning the pages.” – Publishers Weekly on CONSTANT FEAR
“Palmer examines the steps parents will take to ensure the security of their kids in his latest thriller. He gives a familiar story a fresh spin with compelling characters and a protagonist who usually would be portrayed as the villain. Readers will care about everyone, and grimace and sweat with every tense scene. Palmer’s thrillers involving family dynamics are terrific, and this one is no exception .”– RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars for CONSTANT FEAR
