Schoolteacher Faith McCann, the heroine of this searing first in a new crime series from Ragan (Evil Never Dies), returns one afternoon to her Sacramento, Calif., home to discover the members of her family bound and gagged: her husband, Craig, and their children, 10-year-old Lara and nine-year-old Hudson. The bad guys take the kids, slit Craig’s throat, and leave Faith for dead after a vicious beating. After a stint in a drug-induced coma and intensive care, Faith finds new purpose in searching for Lara and Hudson and their captors. Frustrated by the slowness of the official investigation, Faith assaults a police detective and winds up in court-mandated anger control classes, where under the sobriquet “Furious” she meets “Rage” and “Beast.” Rage and Beast become unlikely allies in her effort to penetrate the world of human trafficking, the evils of which are highlighted in chapters revealing what happened to Lara and Hudson. Readers with strong stomachs will eagerly await the next installment.

The follow-up to the Wall Street Journal bestseller Outrage. Those who hunt monsters must be careful not to become monsters themselves. In another life, before human traffickers murdered her husband and stole her children, Faith McMann was a wife, mother, and teacher. Now she has become Furious, a merciless avenger on a deadly mission to retrieve her young son and daughter, no matter the cost. Aided by unlikely but steadfast allies, the giant Beast and fragile Rage, Faith plunges ever deeper into a sickening underworld of sexual exploitation and slavery with steel-forged determination and righteous anger. In this powerful, suspenseful conclusion to the Faith McMann trilogy, Faith is haunted by questions: Even if her children are recovered, will they be broken beyond repair? What terrible sacrifices will their rescue require? What are the limits of loyalty and love in a world that preys on innocents? And after her brutal awakening to the darkest aspects of human nature, what will remain of her own self?

Every day is a struggle for survival. And yet she lives for only one reason…revenge. While looking for a drug lord via satellite in Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital, Jack Coffey, rookie FBI agent, spots Kate Huntley. Jack is sent by the agency to find Ms. Huntley and bring her back to the States. They have many unanswered questions about her father’s death.

He wants to help her return to the States where he believes she’ll be safe, but she treats him like the enemy and refuses to go. Everything about her is a contradiction.
