Deep down inside, Jack knew he was a violent man. There’d always been a beast inside him, wanting to break out of its cage. He feared it. Jack knew what it was: hate, pure and simple. He’d locked it away, but the monster didn’t die; it grew. Part of him wanted to close his eyes and run from the blackness that burned through his veins, but now Jack embraced the hate—he released the beast.
Police Officer Jack Stratton is hiding. Hiding from the world. From pain. From the memories of losing his best friend, Chandler, in Iraq.

Although the police think she just took off, he knows Michelle would never leave those she loved behind–like he did. Now Jack must take action, find Michelle and bring her home… or die trying.
