The Bodies Left Behind

New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver's novel introduces female protagonist Brynn McKenzie, who stumbles on a heinous murder and finds herself the next potential victim. This award-winning novel contains the masterful plot twists and ticking bomb suspense that have become Deaver’s signature.

When a 911 call from an isolated vacation house on Lake Mondac is cut short, off-duty county sheriff’s deputy Brynn McKenzie leaves her husband and son at the dinner table to investigate—and walks into a scene of true horror. A visiting Milwaukee couple has been shot dead; Brynn, quickly connecting with the lone survivor of the carnage, realizes the perpetrators—two professional criminals—haven't left the crime scene. Unable to call for back-up, deprived of her gun and car, Brynn and her charge escape into the hostile wilderness in a terrifying cat-and-mouse chase. Will Brynn be the next victim?
