(From the publisher):
The adrenaline-charged debut novel of a husband, a wife, and two killers locked in a twisted match of hide-and-seek.
Ellen has murder on her mind: a secret, untracable act of retribution; payback from a horrifying act from her childhood that shattered her family and changed her life forever. After years of searching, the time for action has arrived. She takes to the road in pursuit of a man called Walker-setting into motion a plan so carefully crafter that no one knows where she's gone. Not even her husband, Pete, a college teacher who wakes up one morning alone in their bed. Unaware of her secret past, Pete suspects only that a troubled marriage has reached the end. With the slimmest of clues, a confused and desperate Pete leaves their Dallas home and begins to track Ellen's path.
Tracking Walker to Los Angeles, Ellen figures a gun to his head will get her the identity of the prey she ultimately seeks. But her plan takes a series of horrible twists-she joins Walker on a wild run that inevitably leads them both to an evil they cannot escape.
As Pete pieces together the truth behind Ellen's disappearance, he realizes that his ignorace of his wife's secrets has not only jeopardized their marriage but may also cost Ellen her life. Certain of nothing but the need to find her, Pete cirscrosses the country in a harrowing race against the clock that ends in a brutal, fiery confrontation on a New Mexico mountaintop.
Both gripping suspense and powerful human drama "Every Trace" deftly weaves together themes of betrayal and redemption in a novel no reader will soon forget.
