Homicide investigator Michael Bennett is back and better than ever in Patterson’s Shattered. Mary Catherine and Michael Bennett have finally tied the knot, so everything should be perfect. But the disappearance of Emily Parker leaves Bennett with more questions than answers.
Working case after case, each can predict the other’s next move. So when she fails to show at FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, Bennett risks venturing far outside his jurisdiction. The investigation he undertakes is the most brilliant detective work of his career…and the most intensely personal.
A portrait begins to emerge of a woman as adept at keeping secrets as forging powerful connections. A woman whose enemies had both the means and the motives to silence the real Emily Parker—and her protectors.
