#1 “New York Times” bestseller! From extremist groups to NASCAR to
forensic twists, Temperance Brennan is back in a turbo-charged story of secrets
and murder. A body is found in a barrel of asphalt just before Raceweek when
200,000 fans are pouring into town. The next day a NASCAR crewmember visits
Temperance Brennan and tells his story. His sister, Cyndi Gamble, then a high
school senior who wanted to be a NASCAR driver, disappeared twelve years before
along with her boyfriend, Cale Lovette. Lovette used to hang out with a group of
right-wing extremists known as the Patriot Posse. Is the body Cyndi's? Or
At the time of their disappearance, the FBI joined the investigation because of Cale's association with extremists. But the search was quickly terminated. Tempe considers the multiple theories: did the pair take off together to join the underground militia and then get killed by militia types? Did Cale kill Cyndi and disappear into the militia underground?
The case gets more complex when another man, Ted Raines, is identified as missing in Charlotte, where he had gone for the big race. Ted was an employee of the CDC in Atlantic. Could the body be his? What could Raines–if it is Raines–have been up to?
