Terror places its stamp on a woman unwittingly caught up in a dangerous game in this gripping thriller from the author of A Collection of Strangers.

Jennifer Burch is just a small-town midwestern girl trying to stay afloat in New York City with her husband, a struggling playwright. But an odd request from her Uncle Baxter promises some relief. Always the black sheep of the family, he’s asked Jennifer to hand-deliver one of the letters he left with her when he last visited—and he’s sent her $300 for her trouble. Since they could use the money, Jennifer complies. But the man she gives it to is soon found dead, stabbed in the lobby of her own apartment building.

Asked to deliver another letter for some more money, Jennifer’s suspicions grow. Something happened a long time ago in Central America that connects Baxter to the letter recipients. And now they’re fearing for their lives. Jennifer’s had enough, but her husband hasn’t. He thinks there’s more money to be made if they play their cards right. The only way out now is to uncover the truth—about an international conspiracy of deadly proportions …

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
