The Pied Piper (Paperback)
|Author: Ridley Pearson|
|From best-selling suspense writer Ridley Pearson comes a heart-pounding story of deceit and betrayal. Seattle detective Lou Boldt and forensic pathologist Daphne Matthews must break the brilliantly conceived network of abductions that has shattered lives and terrorized communities.|
The press is calling him the Pied Piper because infants have disappeared from San Diego to Seattle with only a penny flute left in the crib. With few leads, no witnesses, and all signs pointing to a black market adoption agency, Boldt and Matthews must battle not only the overwhelming odds, but the involvement of federal law enforcement, a news-hungry press, and nervous politicians. The more deeply they probe, the more elusive the truth seems -- evidence is stalled, paperwork misplaced, witnesses overlooked. Why, when so much is at stake?
The Pied Piper is Ridley Pearson's most ambitious, intriguing, tightly-woven story yet.
