The third book in his award winning Farm series, the family saga of the Virginia Carlsons, Anderson’s newest thriller starts with a kidnapping and a murder that are only the first lethal threats to the Carlson clan, whose twin teenage prodigies, Jack and Ava Carlson, plan their own justice.
Preparedness is a way of life for the uniquely talented Carlson family, and their daily activities on their four thousand acre Virginia plantation are anything but routine. Andy Carlson, the father of the clan, is an emergency room physician and a former Navy SEAL. His wife Lindsey is a former CIA operative. After having seen thousands of helpless children die in the streets during Middle Eastern conflicts, they have trained their twins, Jack and Ava, to be warriors, not victims.
When their handicapped five year old son, Peewee, is kidnapped, Andy and Lindsey immediately pay the ransom, but days later the family finds Peewee’s body buried in their own family cemetery. They receive a message that he is only the first Carlson to be targeted. Andy and Lindsey fear enemies from their previous lives.
Father, mother and the twins join forces to track down the murderers and bring them to justice. Along the way Jack and Ava defend their own lives, stumble onto their first loves, and suffer their first broken hearts. Ultimately, they face the horror of who killed their brother.
The plantation depicted in the Farm series has been the author’s family home since 1743, and novelist Anderson is an expert on Colonial Virginia, the Civil War, limestone caves and military weapons and installations, all key elements in his fascinating Farm thrillers.
