Lieutenant George Hastings, a cool-headed, quick-thinking police detective, leapt to the forefront of the St. Louis Police Department when two beat cops were gunned down, and he led the joint FBI/police taskforce that caught the killer.

Now he is back at work with the FBI on a new case: Cordelia Penmark, the daughter of a wealthy businessman, has been kidnapped and her boyfriend callously executed outside of a posh holiday party for his law firm.

The murder was clearly a message—the kidnappers are willing to take this as far as they have to—and the target and the ransom demand indicate that the crime is politically motivated. But the investigators are stumped. Wary because of bruised egos on his team and bad blood among members of the young woman's family, and suspicious of the kidnappers' intentions, Hastings knows that there's more than simple politics in play as the kidnappers pull him and the girl's father into a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Slick, sharp, and authentic, Goodbye Sister Disco, the sequel to the acclaimed novel The Betrayers, establishes James Patrick Hunt as one of crime fiction's rising stars.

Reviews

Praise for Goodbye Sister Disco

“The superbly drawn characters in this mix of thriller and police procedural would do Joseph Wambaugh or Michael Connelly proud… This is still another fine piece of work from the author of the Maitland series and two other top-notch stand-alones.” —Booklist (starred review)

“Hunt’s roller coaster of a crime thriller has it all—great characters, plenty of action, and a nail-biting ending. For fans of police procedurals.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“Hunt sets his plot in motion with such quick, sure strokes and sketches even minor characters with such authority… Pure pleasure.” —Kirkus Reviews
