Publisher's Description

Buckle up for intrigue and adventure in scenic Depression-era America. George Hall, a draftsman, buys a 1936 Packard sedan from the estate of spinster Abigale Watling in Oakwood, Illinois. At first, the car brings George, his wife Jean, and their daughter Rose an unexpected boon. But tragedy follows when Rose is kidnapped. The auto then comes into the possession of salesman William Landers, FBI agent Helen Meeker, and serviceman James Coffman’s family. As clues to the kidnapping caper come to light, more than one life is in jeopardy. Will Agent Meeker catch the culprit before it’s too late?

Publishers Weekly

The latest novel from bestselling author Collins (Farraday Road; Swope’s Ridge) is a smooth ride into a kidnapping-murder, and the lives of a number of people connected to it through a mysterious car. Could the new 1936 yellow Packard be responsible for tragedies that wreck its owners’ lives? (At times the author has us wondering whether the car is a cousin of Stephen King’s “Christine.”) Or could the auto provide the answers they all need to find happiness? Master storytelling transports us down a scenic road where agent Helen Meeker tries to prove that a woman can cut it in J. Edgar Hoover’s old-boy’s club at the FBI, while faith and circumstance combine to shape lives during the years just prior to World War II. The deeply developed characters carpool in a high-octane plot. The only bump in the road comes when the story shifts from one owner of the car to another.
