A terrifying Lucas Davenport thriller from #1 New York Timesâ€“bestselling author and Pulitzer Prizeâ€“winner John Sandford.
They call them Travelers. They move from city to city, panhandling, committing no crimesâ€”they just like to stay on the move. And now somebody is killing them.
Lucas Davenportâ€™s adopted daughter, Letty, is home from college when she gets a phone call from a woman Traveler sheâ€™d befriended in San Francisco. The woman thinks somebodyâ€™s killing her friends, sheâ€™s afraid she knows who it is, and now her male companion has gone missing. Sheâ€™s hiding out in North Dakota, and she doesnâ€™t know what to do.
Letty tells Lucas sheâ€™s going to get her, and, though he suspects Lettyâ€™s getting played, he volunteers to go with her. When he hears the womanâ€™s story, though, he begins to think thereâ€™s something in it. Little does he know. In the days to come, he will embark upon an odyssey through a subculture unlike any he has ever seen, a trip that will not only put the two of them in dangerâ€”but just may change the course of his life.
