He knows he’s lucky to be alive. And just a few beds away is the man who 24 hours ago pointed a gun to his head. Ten years earlier in Sweden, Emelie, the young heiress to (an H&M-esque) clothing empire AckWe has gone missing. When local police find blood and semen in a deserted area, they arrest a teenage boy. He denies the charges, and since the body is never found, he can’t be prosecuted. Back to the present, Emelie’s high-profile cold case file is sent to Agent Adderley, now living in Sweden (where he’s not lived since he was a boy) in witness protection, hiding until he can testify against the drug cartel he infiltrated back in the States. Adderley is determined to solve Emelie’s case, but, at the same time, he knows that the drug cartel has a price on his head . . .

About the Author
Peter Mohlin and Peter Nyström grew up together in a small Swedish town and created their first crime novel as ten-year-olds. After careers in journalism and directing/screenwriting, respectively, they decided to pick up where they left off and write crime novels together, realizing their strengths make a fruitful combination: the journalist’s sharp pen mixed with the screenwriter’s sense of dramaturgy and dialogue. The Bucket List, their first novel, is a winner of Sweden’s Crimetime Award for Best Debut Novel and has been sold in 15 countries. The second novel in the John Adderley series, The Other Sister, is forthcoming from The Overlook Press.
