Slow Burn (Hardcover)
This highly anticipated 3rd book in the Sam Kinkaid series begins with a college student kidnapped as she arrives home. But this is no ordinary kidnapping. The victim is Samantha Cates, the daughter of Benjamin Cates, Executive Director of the Utah Department of Corrections, and Sam Kincaid's boss. Out of favor and recently demoted by Benjamin Cates, Kincaid is riding a desk in the department's training division awaiting retirement.
Believing that his daughter's kidnapping might be the work of a vengeful offender, Cates asks Kincaid to return to the Special Investigations Branch (SIB) on temporary assignment to help find his daughter. Teaming with Salt Lake City P.D. Detective Lieutenant Kate McConnell, the two launch a desperate search to find the missing girl. Soon Kincaid discovers two recent murders--one in Las Vegas, the other in Seattle--that appear to be connected to the Salt Lake kidnapping.
With time running out, Kincaid and McConnell are forced to pull out all stops as they learn the kidnapper(s) are about to place the victim in a coffin and bury her alive.
