A successful career. A charismatic new husband. A bright, limitless future. Philadelphia lawyer Campbell Smith seems to have it all. But in Bonnie MacDougal's powerful novel of suspense, beneath the thin surface of tranquility and realized dreams, dark events threaten to throw Cam Smith's neatly arranged life profoundly―and perilously―Out of Order.

On the night of a lavish party celebrating newlyweds Doug and Campbell Smith, tragedy strikes when the thirteen-year-old son of an influential senator is kidnapped. The senator―Doug's mentor―urges Cam to track the boy down. It is an offer she cannot refuse, despite her own unsettling suspicion that the statesman seems less concerned about his child than about keeping the scandal out of the headlines. But as Cam soon discovers, everyone has something to hide.

With a circle of wealth and ambition closing in tightly around her, Cam penetrates layer upon layer of lies and invention. For the abduction is not what it seems. After using all her investigative skills to find the missing boy, she begins to uncover the shocking story that links him to his captor. Surprised at her deepening attachment to them both, struggling between her duty and what is best for the child, Cam starts to question her loyalties, her marriage, her priorities, even the man she thought she loved.

As she pieces together an intricate pattern of abuse and cover-up; as a series of brutal murders looms ever closer, Cam is forced to make the most agonizing decision of her life―to reveal the devastating secret of her own past . . . and the shattering lie she has lived for years.

The Philadelphia Inquirer called Bonnie MacDougal's last searing novel "one hot read." The San Francisco Chronicle declared it "captivating." With Out of Order, MacDougal raises the stakes―and the heat―creating a gripping, passionate thriller.

About the Author

Bonnie MacDougal is a trial lawyer who practiced for sixteen years in major law firms across the country. Born in suburban Philadelphia, she received her undergraduate degree from Bryn Mawr College, magna cum laude with Honors in English literature, and her law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she was a moot-court champion and held a fellowship in legal writing. Her law career took her to Anchorage, Alaska, and Little Rock, Arkansas (where she was one of the few lawyers ever to practice law with Bill Clinton), before she returned to Philadelphia. She joined Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis, a prestigious law firm with more than 200 lawyers, where she developed an expertise in complex litigation and tried a number of high-profile lawsuits. Although her novels are works of fiction, they were inspired by actual cases in which she was involved. Bonnie is now engaged as a full-time author, although she remains involved in litigation on an occasional consulting basis. She lives in suburban Philadelphia with her husband and two daughters.
