"After her young husband's untimely death, Army veteran Cassie Gale decides to take a few days of solitude in the Alaska wilderness before she starts her new job. But when she fails to show up on her first day and her dog is discovered injured at her wrecked campsite, her father knows that this is much more than a camping trip gone awry. As it turns out, Cassie's not the first person to disappear without a trace in Alaska's northern interior. Bears. Wolves. Avalanches. Frostbite. Starvation. There are many ways to die in here. But not all disappearances can be explained. Cassie's is one of them, along with a number of other outdoor enthusiasts who have vanished in recent years. Regaining consciousness in a Russian prison, Cassie finds herself trapped in a system designed to ensure that no one ever escapes alive. It will require all her grit and skills to survive. Meanwhile, her father rushes to outrun the clock, scouring thousands of acres, only to realize she's been taken by a far more nefarious adversary-one with the power of the Eastern Bloc behind it. Ties to his past life, one full of secrets, threaten to surface. He knows there's a price to be paid, but he's determined it won't be his daughter"-- Provided by publisher.

Sleeping Bear : A Thriller
(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
When Army veteran Cassie Gale goes missing on a solo camping trip along Alaska's Yukon River in Sullivan's impressive debut, her father, former intelligence officer Jim Gale, immediately organizes a search party of friends and family to augment the state's thin law enforcement resources. Jim eventually determines that Cassie was the latest victim of a Russian kidnapping scheme. Meanwhile, on Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula, Cassie and several other Americans abducted from Alaska are being held in a former missile silo. Some are used for medical experimentation by a particularly despicable villain, Gen. Viktor Sokolov, while others are forced to fight Russian soldiers in televised bouts that Kremlin higher-ups use for wagered entertainment. An electrifying finale featuring a tense rescue mission by a Navy SEAL team caps off the drama. Sullivan nails it out of the gate with a story that moves with confidence and, despite a few over-the-top plot twists, never rings false. This action thriller marks the arrival of a new talent. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (July)
