Publisher's Summary

When a night-time call to 911 from a secluded Wisconsin vacation house is cut short, off-duty deputy Brynn McKenzie leaves her husband and son at the dinner table and drives up to Lake Mondac to investigate. Was it a misdial or an aborted crime report? Brynn stumbles onto a scene of true horror and narrowly escapes from two professional criminals. She and a terrified visitor to the weekend house, Michelle, flee into the woods in a race for their lives. As different as night and day, and stripped of modern-day resources, Brynn, a tough deputy with a difficult past, and Michelle, a pampered city girl, must overcome their natural reluctance to trust each other and learn to use their wits and courage to survive the relentless pursuit. The deputy's disappearance spurs both her troubled son and her new husband into action, while the incident sets in motion Brynn's loyal fellow deputies and elements from Milwaukee's underside. These various forces race along inexorably toward the novel's gritty and stunning conclusion.
The Bodies Left Behind is an epic cat-and-mouse chase, told nearly in real-time, and is filled with Deaver's patented twists and turns, where nothing is what it seems, and death lingers just around the next curve on a deserted path deep in the midnight forest.

very disapointing

If you're expecting typical Jeffery Deaver.don't. No Lymcon Ryhme. No Amelia Sax. No walking the grid. This book is really nothing than a run of the mill chase story. I kept waiting for some interesting back story or anything interesting except the characters being chased through the woods. I never got it. I was bored. I wish I could have read a review before I wasted the download. I hope you do.

Jeffery Deaver has written a novel that is so full of suspence that it keeps you on edge until the very end. This is a masterpiece, one of his best books ever. Of course, no book is complete without the voice that brings each and every page to life and make no exception Holter Graham is wonderful too. This is a must and should get an award of some type. Most assured this is worth every penny. A must for all audible who love suspence. Deaver's work is suspence at its finest!
