Wow! Do you like suspense
and intrigue?! Don't miss this "can't put down" thriller. John Barron
becomes a detective in an elite unit in Los Angeles. But he is unable to
condone a practice that has been going on for many years. He becomes
involved with a "chase" that puts his own life on the chase route. And
just when you think his dilemma is solved. . .

— Karen L.


From the New York Times bestselling author of The Day After Tomorrow and The Day of Confession comes The Exile, an all new heart-pounding thriller

The Los Angeles Police Department's famed 5-2 squad boards a commuter train in an attempt to take a cold-blooded killer into custody. John Barron, the newest and youngest member of the elite LAPD unit, learns quickly that the 5-2 has their own deadly system of justice, and that even the slightest protest will result in his suffering the same swift fate. Thus begins a dark, explosive struggle between good and evil pitting Barron's squad against an exceedingly imaginative and brutal killer.

Suddenly the game widens when John flees to London with his sister, Rebecca, and they are thrown into a race against time. Pursuing them is a baroness, beautiful and cruel, who will stop at nothing to protect her family, her fortune, and her global ambitions. Her secret spanning oceans, continents, the collapse of the USSR, even the death of the Tsars is a stunning revelation that could catapult her to the pinnacle of world power.
