Overview

An explosive stand-alone thriller from the Edgar Award–winning writer Stephen King called “the next suspense superstar”

Can a person ever really disappear for good by going off the grid? And what happens when vanishing is no longer an option?

Sarah Keller is a single mother to five-year-old Zoe, living quietly in Oklahoma. She’s also a skip tracer, an expert in tracking people who’ve gone on the lam to avoid arrest, prosecution, or debt—pinpointing their locations to bring them to justice.

When a school bus accident sends Zoe to the ER, their quiet life explodes. Zoe’s medical tests reveal what Sarah has been hiding: Zoe is not her daughter. Zoe’s biological mother—Sarah’s sister, Beth—was murdered shortly after the child’s birth. And Zoe’s father is missing and presumed dead.

With no way to prove her innocence, Sarah must abandon her carefully constructed life and go on the run. Chased by cops, federal agents, and the group responsible for Beth’s murder, Sarah embarks on a desperate journey. Can her knowledge as a skip tracer help her stay off the grid, remain one step ahead of her pursuers, and find a way to save her daughter?

Meg Gardiner is acclaimed for her richly drawn characters, propulsive plotting, relentless suspense, and shocking twists. The Shadow Tracer delivers on those fronts and more.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Edgar-winner Gardiner’s second stand-alone (after Ransom River) boasts another of the strong female characters she’s known for and enough pulse-pounding action to satisfy the most avid thriller fan. Sarah Keller swore to her dying sister, Bethany, that she would take and protect Bethany’s baby, Zoe, from the father, Nolan Worthe, and his father, Eldrick Worthe, “the patriarch and self-proclaimed prophet of the Fiery Branch of the New Covenant”—a fanatical religious cult that extends across four Western states. Five years later, Sarah has made a new life for herself and Zoe in Oklahoma City, Okla., where a doctor examining Zoe figures out that Sarah is not the girl’s mother, as she claims to be. For FBI agent Curtis Harker, Sarah is the key to his vengeance on the Worthes for killing his wife. For the Worthes, tracking down five-year-old Zoe is vital to their survival. Desperate Sarah calls on U.S Marshal Michael Lawless for aid. The ensuing bloody cross-country race is packed with surprises and harrowing escapes. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary Agents. (June)

Lori Roy, Edgar Award winning author of Until She Comes Home, Interviews Meg Gardiner

Lori: THE SHADOW TRACER, your most recent novel, highlights a subject that is suddenly front and center in our headlines—personal privacy. The topic is certainly resonating with readers as the novel has already been placed on many Summer Reading Lists and has accumulated numerous positive reviews for its non-stop suspense and countless twists and turns. Did you intentionally choose to explore the subject of personal privacy in THE SHADOW TRACER because of its growing presence in our national debate or has it been a long-standing interest?

Meg: Last year I read about the vast facility the NSA is building in Utah to store and analyze data. The place will need 65 megawatts just to run—its electricity costs alone will be $40 million per year. Reading that, I wondered: in today's hyper-connected world, how do you keep yourself from becoming a fly under glass? Surprise, surprise. Now everybody’s wondering. Technology has made it vastly easier to track us than ever before—to know where we are, who we’re with, and how we're spending our money. And face it: we like the goodies technology makes possible. Moreover, we often revel in obliterating our own privacy. (Celebrity Rehab, anyone? Selfies?) And the government has legitimate interests in security and law enforcement. But you know what? A stubborn part of me wants the ability to say: none of your damn business. So I thought: What if you needed, absolutely, to run and hide? Could you do it? What if you needed to run… with a little kid? What if the people chasing you had money, resources, and were obsessed with capturing you? What if you were being chased not just by criminals, but the FBI? From there, the story of Sarah Keller going on the run to protect her daughter Zoe came to life.

THE SHADOW TRACER introduces us to Sarah Keller—a single mother who tracks people for a living. When the hunter becomes the hunted and Sarah must go on the run to protect her daughter, she uses her tracking skills to avoid capture and vanishes into the vast landscape of New Mexico and Texas. As you developed your plot lines, how did this vast setting assist you as a writer and how did it challenge you?

The southwest is a challenging landscape that I have great affection for. I was born in Oklahoma, where Sarah's flight begins. I have family in Texas. (Heck, I’m in Texas right now.) Growing up, I traveled every summer to Roswell. My grandparents lived there. I loved New Mexico—White Sands National Monument and Carlsbad Caverns and the Bottomless Lakes and the town of Lincoln, birthplace of Billy the Kid. It was austere and rugged and exciting. The southwest reminds us that in the USA, it’s still possible to find ourselves isolated in a desolate setting with scant means of escape. Put a character in that setting, and it challenges the writer to come up with creative solutions. (Or to kill people off.) In the book, the southwest becomes a crucible: hostile territory Sarah must cross to survive. She's one woman, scrambling for safety with only her wits, her skip tracing skills, and her meager savings to rely on. She's up against the FBI and a criminal clan that wants to bring Zoe into their fold. In writing the novel I tried to bring my childhood memories to life, and then to add hit men, U.S. Marshals, and car chases.

There is a terrifically suspenseful scene in THE SHADOW TRACER that takes place in an airplane graveyard. It's a wonderfully unique setting that you bring to life with precise detail. I have to wonder...where did you get the idea for this setting and have you ever visited such a place?

For years I drove past the airplane graveyard in Mojave, California, on my way to visit family in China Lake. The place was fascinating and forlorn: all those jets that had soared and circled the world, left grounded and rusting in the desert sunshine—sitting there waiting to be cannibalized by wrecking machinery. I did some research. Once you’ve watched video of a two-ton guillotine slicing up a B-52 bomber, you can't not put such a place in a thriller.

In the acknowledgments for THE SHADOW TRACER, you mention a couple of books you used while researching the novel. Did you do any other types of research in order to develop such a detailed understanding of the various methods to trace a person or for a person to “drop out" of society?

The books were valuable resources, written by former skip tracers. I got a taste of just how hard it is to vanish when I ordered them online. Instantly a dialogue box popped up: “Share that you bought How to Disappear with all your social networks?” Dropping out takes smarts and discipline. I researched news stories about people who had tried to disappear but failed—particularly people who faked their own deaths. (Hint: if you pretend to drown while kayaking, afterwards don’t let your realtor snap your photo and put it on their website. No matter how satisfied you are with the Panamanian hideout you bought.) For the scene in the novel where Sarah Keller serves a subpoena, I drew on the experiences of my brother. He owns an attorney support service like the one Sarah works for. It’s amazing to hear his tales of tracking down sneaks and fraudsters, and to realize how gutsy he has to be to confront them. My baby brother! Of course, it helps that he's now 6'3".

Your first five books were part of the Evan Delaney series. The next four novels introduced us to Jo Beckett. And most recently, you've written two stand-alone novels—RANSOM RIVER and THE SHADOW TRACER. Why did you choose to make the shift after nine series books?

I love writing about Evan and Jo. But I have stories to tell that don’t belong to them. Sarah Keller had to be at the center of The Shadow Tracer. The book is about her world and her life. If the story wasn't hers, it would have lacked heart and guts. I want readers riding along with her as she makes her desperate run and tries to spirit Zoe to safety.

I'm often asked if my second book was easier to write than my first. People are generally surprised when I tell them it was much harder to write book #2. I'll ask you this same question. Was book #11 easier to write than book #1? Were some things easier, some harder?

Well, I wrote three or four book number ones before I got China Lake published. They were harder, because I had no idea what I was doing. They were awful. Thank goodness they never saw the light of day. Book #11 was both easier and harder. I know now that I can write a novel, and how to brainstorm and outline and draft and revise and do friendly battle with my editor so that I can finish it in a year. But creating a new world from scratch, building a heroine and her antagonists from the ground up, takes effort. Luckily, it’s intense but it’s insanely fun.

I often wonder if authors with many successful books to their credit ever go back and read their early works. Now that I have such a writer before me, I'll ask...Have you ever gone back and re-read the Edgar award-winning CHINA LAKE? If so, what thoughts did you have as you read it? If not, is there any particular reason you have not?

I reread China Lake to proofread the typeset pages before its U.S. publication. Every few pages I’d think: Huh. I wrote this? It’s not so bad. But generally I don’t reread my novels. I get the heebie-jeebies and want to start editing them again.

I once heard you refer to yourself as an "escaped lawyer." Would you care to elaborate on your shift from attorney to best-selling, award-winning novelist?

I practiced law with a firm in Los Angeles, doing commercial litigation. The work was challenging in the best way. Going to court was a thrill. But once I started my family, I didn’t want to argue for a living. I switched to teaching legal writing at the University of California Santa Barbara. That was a kick. I would hold mock trials in class. In one case, a student was charged with murdering her boyfriend during a paintball game gone horribly awry. In another, a construction worker booted an enemy off the roof of a building onto a jutting shank of exposed rebar. God, that was horrible of me. You can see that by that point, I was already primed to write suspense novels. But I didn’t get the chance until my husband took a job in the UK, and we moved to London. That was the year all my kids were finally in school. I thought: time to put up or shut up. So I sat down and started writing. And after several years and all those awful book number ones, I wrote China Lake.

While sitting poolside at a writers' conference a few weeks before my first novel came out, I sat at a round-table discussion and listened to you speak about your writing process. You talked about spending several weeks searching for one good idea before you put pen to paper. How do know when you've touched on the idea that will translate into a successful novel?

The idea needs to be exciting, and unsettling, and scary enough that when you talk about it, people think, God, don’t let that happen to me. Once you can describe it in one breath, and have your listener inhale sharply, you’re on the right track.

At last year's Edgar awards, we shared a champagne toast with several other folks from Penguin and Dutton. We sipped pink champagne that night. I have to ask...do you prefer pink champagne or the more traditional white?

As long as we’re toasting one of your novels, it’s all good.

Praise for Ransom River:

“A chilly tale for a hot day at the beach.”—USA Today

Ransom River is everything you want in a blockbuster thriller: multiple plot twists, thoroughly creepy psychotic villains, danger at every turn. Gardiner has an enviable talent for pushing characters and plot elements to the point of straining credibility, but she never breaks the limits of plausibility.”
—Associated Press

“‘Thrill ride’ is just too tame a description for Ransom River...The characters are emotionally complex, both the good and the bad. Gardiner has also created two of the creepiest siblings to be found outside of a Stephen King novel.”
Florida Times-Union

“Crisp writing and a breathless plot make [Ransom River] a must-read for both newcomers and fans of the author’s Jo Beckett and Evan Delaney series.”
Booklist

“This is a tale that truly delves into the world of ‘small town living,’ and the wishes and dreams of most young people to get away from these surroundings as soon as possible. A great thriller that begins with the word ‘go,’ readers will be enthralled until the very last surprise is sprung. A definite keeper!”
Suspense Magazine

“Gardiner continues to move from strength to strength; with a tightly crafted story and charismatic (albeit admirably flawed) new characters, Ransom River displays the talents of a top tier mystery writer at the top of her game.”
—BookPage

Praise for Meg Gardiner:

“Meg Gardiner is as good as Michael Connelly and far better than Janet Evonovich…The next suspense superstar.” 
—Stephen King

"Stephen King is absolutely right.  Meg Gardiner is an astonishing writer…I couldn't turn the pages fast enough."
—Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author

"Meg Gardiner makes every one of her characters leap alive off the page”
–Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author

“It cannot be overstated how talented Gardiner is. The action and thrills and twists never let up.”
Florida Times-Union

“Edgar-winner Gardiner’s second stand-alone (after Ransom River) boasts another of the strong female characters she’s known for and enough pulse-pounding action to satisfy the most avid thriller fan.” - Publishers Weekly

Library Journal
Sarah Keller is a skip tracer with a shadowy past, hiding the lie that she and her five-year-old daughter are living. Fiercely determined to keep Zoe safe from the far-reaching clutches of a messianic cult with ties to terrorism, drugs, and polygamy, Sarah is always prepared to run. When a traffic accident exposes her deception, there's no time for her to second-guess or doubt her choices; hell is coming in the form of the Shattering Angel and his Angel Wings—devout members of the cult who will do anything their leader asks of them to assure their rightful place in heaven. Sarah's possible connection to the cult is like blood in the water for government agents, and she and Zoe are pressed into serving as bait in a cat-and-mouse game she has no desire to play. Near cinematic quick-cut action drives a lean, plot-driven story populated by larger-than-life characters. Alternating points of view interspersed with flashbacks keep everything rocketing along until the incendiary finale. VERDICT In her second stand-alone thriller (after Ransom River), the Edgar Award-winning Gardiner has set up a high-velocity ride into the heart of the New Mexico desert that is sure to keep adrenaline junkies and armchair thrill-seekers on the edge of their seats. [See Prepub Alert, 1/14/13.]—Charli Osborne, Oxford P.L., MI
Kirkus Reviews
Gardiner's latest stand-alone revisits the story of Thelma and Louise, with Thelma played by a professional skip tracer and Louise by a refugee from kindergarten. As she escaped a burning building five years ago, Sarah Keller promised her dying sister, Bethany, that she'd protect Bethany's daughter Zoe from the monstrous Worthes, the polygamous family of self-anointed prophets--"white trash mafia who got a bad dose of God"--into which Bethany had unwisely married. With the unexpected help of Deputy Marshal Michael Lawless, Sarah succeeded in going off the grid in Oklahoma City and raising the little girl as her own. When a series of freak accidents outs Sarah and Zoe and makes national headlines, imprisoned patriarch Eldrick Worthe, whose desire to recover Zoe for their family is intensified by darker motives, sends Grissom Briggs, the Worthes' "Shattering Angel," after Sarah, together with two of Eldrick's granddaughters, Fell and Reavy, to serve as his "wives of the wind" and well-armed wingmen. Sarah, whose experience as a skip tracer has taught her a bit about vanishing without a trace, grabs Zoe, phones Lawless and heads to Roswell, N.M., where he's arranged a more secure hideout for her. But "more secure" is only a relative term when you're pursued by avenging angels with shotguns, and Sarah's flight leaves a blood-soaked trail behind her. Realizing eventually that she can't remain on the run indefinitely, Sarah hatches a scheme to turn the Worthes against each other. A series of expertly planned surprises awaits both the pursuers and their prey. If you can accept the preposterous setup, the ruthlessly two-dimensional villains and the world's most uncomplaining 5-year-old, Gardiner (Ransom River, 2012, etc.) will keep you up half the night with nonstop action and nary a pause for breath.

    Sarah has the perfect occupation which she¿ll need when the past

    Sarah has the perfect occupation which she’ll need when the past reaches out and touch her. With learned skills, Sarah stays one step ahead of her enemies, avoiding detection at every corner in this suspenseful tale that took me on a rollercoaster ride with my heart thumping as the tension in each chapter played out. This is an adrenaline-charged riveting drama that did not pause as Sarah raced again foes and time to save both herself and her daughter’s lives. A great read in this gripping tale of a mother’s love will have you grasping the pages from beginning to end. Meg delivers a dynamite package of thrills and chills in this well-written novel that takes her to the pinnacle of thriller authors.

    Sarah Keller is a “skip tracer,” a person who finds people who have attempted to do everything possible to hide, from subpoenas, arrest, whatever it is that demands secrecy and constant moving, a life of living one step ahead of the pursuer.  Sarah is very, very good at what she does.  But before her job comes her passionate love for her daughter, Zoe; at least that’s what she tells anyone who asks.  Zoe and Sarah have a very special bond that is now threatened to completely unravel!
    Right after Sarah serves a subpoena on someone she had tracked relentlessly, Zoe is injured in a bus accident.  After being taken to the hospital, the examination reveals two shocking revelations that seem to prove that Sarah is not really Zoe’s mother and may be a murderer as well.  Now, the hunter becomes the hunted, and the two, with the help of a friend, Danisha, speedily exit from Oklahoma.  They are not only being pursued by the FBI and the Oklahoma police, because of another related murder as well, but her ex-boyfriend Nolan’s family are in on the chase as well.
    Nolan’s father is a self-appointed, sociopathic prophet who is a polygamist, murderer, fanatic, thief, dictator, wife and child abuser, and just about every other negative label one can imagine.  But one can’t just write him off as he views rebellion as treachery and insists on the absolute punishment – death – to all who cross his sick vision and decisions.  He wants Zoe now and has put something inside her that will enable him to easily find her – that is his family and followers will as he’s presently locked in a maximum security prison.
    So the chase grows more and more intense as friend and foe get closer to Sarah and Zoe.  There are other threads within this story in which friend becomes foe and vice versa.  Every page is filled with high drama and one comes to admire Sarah for her fervor in protecting Zoe and eluding her pursuers.  No, it doesn’t think the way the reader believes it will; instead it leaves the reader wondering if there will be a another hair-raising sequel to this gripping story.
    The Shadow Tracer is great crime fiction, a simple plot with many unexpected twists and turns, enough adrenaline-pumping action to keep a reader up all night during and after one’s non-stop reading, and very real scenarios that partially bear truth to realistic stories that have been in the news in the last twenty-five years.  Get ready for a rollicking roller coaster ride – Meg Gardiner knows how to spin a deadly mystery/crime novel tale!! Great read!
