Publisher's Summary

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.

A frightening story..... learn how vulnerable, how very susceptible we are when we're unhappy. Unhappy, because we haven't yet figured out who we are and what we can do.
