Refusing to give up her life when her parents and siblings enter the Witness Protection Program, Kate Raab is horrified when her father goes missing a year later in the aftermath of his case worker's brutal murder.

HARPERCOLL

From the number one New York Times bestselling coauthor of Judge & Jury and Lifeguard comes this electrifying solo debut, The Blue Zone.

Kate Raab's life seems almost perfect: her boyfriend, her job, her family . . . until her father runs into trouble with the law. His only recourse is to testify against his former accomplices in exchange for his family's placement in the Witness Protection Program. But one of them gets cold feet. In a flash, everything Kate can count on is gone.

Now, a year later, her worst fears have happened: Her father has disappeared—into what the WITSEC agency calls "the blue zone"—and someone close to him is found brutally murdered. With her family under surveillance, the FBI untrustworthy, and her father's menacing "friends" circling with increasing intensity, Kate sets off to find her father—and uncover the secrets someone will kill to keep buried.

I enjoyed this thrilling read! Very fast paced and well developed. Everything seems perfect for 23 year old Kate Raab until her father's gold trading business is implicated in illegal trading with a powerful Colombian drug cartel. Faced with countless years of prison, Kate's father decides to help the FBI in exchange for Witness Protection for him and his family. Not wanting to give up her comfortable life, Kate refuses. She must part with her family, possibly never seeing them again. When Kate is tracked by suspicious people she thinks are part of the cartel, she starts investigating her family's past. She begins to put the pieces together and realizes everything she has known is not what it seems. Her conclusions bring her to question where her true loyalties lie.

Plenty of suspense and "twists". If you like a good thriller, read this book. Mr. Gross wrote this story in the style of James Patterson's earlier novels. Very entertaining and surprise ending.
