The new Stevens and Windermere novel from Owen Laukkanen, author of the dazzlingly acclaimed The Professionals—“one of the best debuts of the year" (Mystery Scene).

Accountant Carter Tomlin has a secret. He’s lost his job, the bills are mounting, and his perfect life is hanging by a thread. Desperate, he robs a bank. Then he robs another.

Reuniting for the first time after their first case, FBI Special Agent Carla Windermere homes in on Tomlin from one direction, while Minnesota state investigator Kirk Stevens picks up the trail from another.

Because Carter Tomlin likes robbing banks. And it’s not because of the money anymore. Tomlin has guns and a new taste for violence. And he’s not quitting anytime soon.
