When more than 600 of the world’s most violent human beings pour out from Pronghorn Correctional Facility into the Nevada Desert, the biggest manhunt in US history begins.
But for John Kradle, this is his one chance to prove his innocence, five years after the murder of his wife and child.
He just needs to stay one step ahead of the teams of law enforcement officers he knows will be chasing the escapees down.
Death Row Supervisor turned fugitive-hunter Celine Osbourne is single-minded in her mission to catch Kradle. She has very personal reasons for hating him – and she knows exactly where he’s heading . . .

(4 / 5) Immediately, I was thrown into this fast-paced story and swept up in the intensity of it. Right off, we’re introduced to prison guard’s families who are then taken hostage by someone requesting all 600 inmates be released.
I love a book that sucks me in so fast! We hear multiple POV from guards and inmates in the past but also the present. The story builds intensity when we learn their backstories and the crimes of the inmates. We also see each step of the investigation and hunt for escaped prisoners.
It was a wild ride! By the end I was questioning everyone’s loyalty and was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happened. Toward the conclusion, the pace slowed just slightly, which I wasn’t expecting, but it didn’t take away from the story. I highly recommend this one!
Content Summary: F words: 20+, murder with blood and details, crimes and details of crimes, many intense life-threatening moments (including children’s lives), very small romance with minimal details.
