The long-awaited solo debut novel by Andrew Gross, who has coauthored numerous bestsellers with James Patterson (Judge & Jury, Lifeguard, The Jester, et al.), revolves around a young woman named Kate Raab. Kate appears to have it all -- a great job, a loving boyfriend, a well-to-do and close-knit family -- until her father gets arrested by the FBI for money laundering, aiding and abetting a criminal enterprise, and conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government. With members of a highly irate Columbian drug cartel determined to kill Kate's father before he can testify against them, he is forced to turn state's evidence for an opportunity to put himself and his family in the Witness Protection Program.
But Kate, who is just beginning a promising medical researching career in New York City, decides to forego the Witness Protection Program and continue on with her life without her family. She marries her boyfriend, and for a little over a year, her life is close to idyllic. Then a coworker who resembles her is shot in the head, and she is informed that her father is inexplicably missing. But when Kate begins to investigate her father's mysterious disappearance, she uncovers information about his shady past that will turn her world upside down… Fans of previous blockbuster collaborations between Gross and Patterson will definitely not be disappointed with The Blue Zone; breakneck paced and replete with jaw-dropping plot twists, this page-turning thriller will keep readers up way past their bedtime.
