Overview

Air Force One meets The Fugitive in the second pulse-pounding thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Altar of Bones.

Secret Service Agent Rory Calhoun has the dream assignment of her career—protecting the President of the United States. Until early one morning, during a diversionary attack by a radio-controlled model plane, the President vanishes right out of the Oval Office, seemingly into thin air. Was President Jackson Boone kidnapped? Or did he orchestrate the disappearance himself?

As the White House launches into damage control, they are hit with a second blow. The president's daughter—a freshman at a New England university where days before a Nobel-prize winning physicist was brutally tortured and murdered—is also missing.

Later, a devastating earthquake and tsunami strike Lisbon, Portugal, and an increasingly desperate White House is finding it harder and harder to keep a lid on the President's disappearance.

Not only is Rory’s career on the line, but during the last couple of months, she and President Jackson Boone have been slowly and inexorably falling in love. As she goes back over the last forty-eight hours, one unusual thing jumps out at her: an off-hand request by the president to his staff to find out everything they can about something called the Pandora Effect….

Editorial Reviews

New York Times bestseller Greg Iles
"Will blow your mind! Dan Brown meets Robert Ludlum in this gripping, incredibly fast-paced thriller.”
New York Times bestseller Ted Bell
"You won't put it down until you get up to walk around and catch your breath."
New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter
Altar of Bones is one of the most stunning novels I've ever read. From superbly etched characters to a plot rich with twists and heart-stopping action . . . an incredible reading experience you can't miss.”
Booklist (starred review)
“Comparisons to Steve Berry, Dan Brown, and James Rollins are inevitable and not unmerited. But Carter’s Altar is anything but derivative. A corkscrewing, looping roller coaster of a reading experience, it definitely belongs in the hands of thriller fans who crave speed.”
