|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.
From the Publisher:
A shipping container washed ashore leads Seattle television news anchor Stevie McNeal and reporter friend Melissa on the trail of a scare involving the importation of illegal aliens. A career stepping-stone for McNeal, the investigation puts her at cross-purposes with the Seattle Police Department's Lou Boldt and Sergeant John LaMoia. When Melissa disappears, perhaps at the hands of the Chinese Triad, McNeal turns from foe to ally and teams up with the detectives on an investigation that takes them from Seattle's docklands to the offices of the INS.
