Following A Deeper Sleep, her most successful Kate Shugak novel to date, the Edgar Award winner and New York Times bestselling thriller writer Dana Stabenow delivers a nail-biting, all-too-real novel of international suspense.

A terrorist with a most personal grudge, an FBI analyst challenged to be three steps ahead of the intelligence, a Coast Guard captain assigned to keep watch on that very American of symbols from the water, an astronaut who takes her job very seriously—the paths of all of these characters converge on one clear morning in Florida. NASA is preparing to launch the space shuttle, this time with a high-paying visitor on board as a guest, and the FBI and the Coast Guard are doing everything they can to help the launch go off without a hitch. But one Pakistani man with a bottomless personal grudge and the commitment of many zealous men behind him is determined to strike back at the most visible target he can find.

Once again Dana Stabenow, who researched this gripping scenario by spending weeks living on board a Coast Guard cutter as it conducted its mission in the eastern Pacific, delivers an action-driven thriller with an ingenious, frightening, straight-from-the-headlines plot, certain to be her next bestseller.

Chapter 1
“I feel like I’m in a third-world country,” Parker said, breaking a silence that had endured the entire distance from the Iwo Jima, moored at the Riverwalk in downtown New Orleans.
“Haiti,” Helms said. She looked around with the same expression of bewilderment she’d worn all day. “Where is everyone? There should be ambulances and helicopters and—and police cars.” She looked back at the two officers, almost pleading. “It can’t be only us. It can’t be.”

Praise for Prepared for Rage

Outstanding Praise for Dana Stabenow

“All the elements that have made the author’s signature Kate Shugak crime series successful shine in this fifteenth entry: Kate’s personal growth as a woman and as an investigator, the Alaskan environment in all its unforgiving beauty, and a mystery whose solution remains in doubt until the end.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review) on A Deeper Sleep

“Stabenow once again presents us with a cleverly conceived and crisply written thriller that provides a provocative glimpse of life as it is lived and justice as it is served on America’s last frontier.”
The San Diego Union-Tribune on A Deeper Sleep

“A taut, atmospheric thriller . . . The author paints convincing portraits of masterminds, mercenaries, and CIA operatives, and jacks up the adrenaline with a high-speed ocean chase.”
People magazine on Blindfold Game

“A tense and tautly written thrill ride that keeps readers hooked all the way to the explosive climax . . . By the time the plot kicks into high gear, the setting is firmly established as both authentic and believably dangerous.”
San Francisco Chronicle on Blindfold Game

“Edgar winner Stabenow has crafted a taut, credible thriller that should win her a much larger audience. . . . Stabenow has established herself as a fine mystery writer, but she may have found her true métier with this excellent thriller.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Blindfold Game

“Every time I think Dana Stabenow has gotten as good as she can get, she comes up with something better.”
The Washington Times

“An intelligent crime novel that reflects both [Stabenow’s] love of wilderness and her understanding of the complex questions of profit versus the purity of the frontier.”
The Dallas Morning News on A Fine and Bitter Snow

“If you haven’t discovered this splendid North Country series, now is the time. . . . Highly entertaining.”
USA Today on Hunter’s Moon
