Justin March leads a boring life until he embarks on a quest to find out the identity of the elusive computer hacker known as the Judge. In the near future, Techclon, an American mega corporation, develops cheap wireless nodes making the Internet fast, access universal, and bandwidth abundant. Techclon convinces the government to ban personal hard drives, forcing everyone to store their data over the Internet on Techclon servers. After Justin is arrested for having his own hard drive, the CEO of Techclon gives Justin a choice: work for Techclon or go to prison. Justin's new career at Techclon centers on catching the Judge, an amateur philosopher and a black hat computer hacker who plans to release a doomsday worm that will take down the Internet. Through online conversations with the Judge, Justin becomes obsessed. Justin's quest will sweep him to the top echelon of society and then plunge him into poverty as he seeks to figure out the Judge's identity. Even after the Judge is no longer a threat, Justin sacrifices everything to find the Judge because he believes the Judge is the only person who can cure his sense of alienation.

A 2018 Goodreads Choice Award Finalist—Top 5 Best Mystery & Thriller * A Suspense Magazine “Best of 2018” Thriller/Suspense Pick

“An acutely observed family drama with bone-chilling suspense.” —People

“Jewell teases out her twisty plot at just the right pace, leaving readers on the edge of their seats. Her multilayered characters are sheer perfection, and even the most astute thriller reader won’t see where everything is going until the final threads are unknotted.” —Booklist, starred review

“Sharply written with twists and turns, Jewell’s latest will please fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, or Luckiest Girl Alive." —Library Journal

Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. She was fifteen, the youngest of three. She was beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers. She and her boyfriend made a teenaged golden couple. She was days away from an idyllic post-exams summer vacation, with her whole life ahead of her.

And then she was gone.

Now, her mother Laurel Mack is trying to put her life back together. It’s been ten years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie’s case was unearthed. So when she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a café, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she’s meeting Floyd’s daughters—and his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away.

Because looking at Poppy is like looking at Ellie. And now, the unanswered questions she’s tried so hard to put to rest begin to haunt Laurel anew. Where did Ellie go? Did she really run away from home, as the police have long suspected, or was there a more sinister reason for her disappearance? Who is Floyd, really? And why does his daughter remind Laurel so viscerally of her own missing girl?
