“Carter’s writing is on target.”—Publisher’s Weekly
Former FBI agent Karen Pantelli lives by a simple philosophy: never, ever care. Three years after a tragic mistake ends her once-stellar career, she drifts from one dead-end job to another, quickly moving on when she finds herself getting too attached. A new city. A new life. A new way of forgetting and being forgotten.
Until one chilly night behind a seedy bar, when a frightened girl leaps out of the back of a speeding van.
As they end up on the run in a thrilling chase that spans half the country, Karen soon realizes it’s much easier to say you don’t care than to actually mean it. And that unlocking the secrets in this girl’s extraordinary mind might not only save both of them, but bring down one of the most sinister organizations the world has ever known.
