Update: This article (and the headline) have been changed to reflect the book’s title, Long Road to Mercy, which was just released.
David Baldacci is one of the top-selling thriller authors on the planet and currently has multiple hit franchises to his name. . . a list that’s about to get even longer later on this year.
Baldacci, who has written multiple series in the past, has primarily concentrated on three main protagonists the last few years. Splitting time between Amos Decker, Will Robie, and John Puller, the author continuously lands high on The New York Times bestsellers list no matter which character is starring in his latest book. Now, he’ll be adding a fourth character to his rotation, an FBI agent named Atlee Pine.
While the title hasn’t been released yet, we do know that Baldacci’s upcoming Atlee Pine book is the first in a new series, and that it’ll come out on November 13th. We also have the plot details, which you can see below!
#1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci introduces a remarkable new character: Atlee Pine, an FBI special agent assigned to the remote wilds of the western United States. Ever since her twin sister was abducted by a notorious serial killer at age five, Atlee has spent her life hunting down those who hurt others. And she’s the best at it. She could be one of the Bureau’s top criminal profilers, if she didn’t prefer catching criminals in the vast wilderness of the West to climbing the career ladder in the D.C. office. Her chosen mission is a lonesome one–but that suits her just fine.
Now, Atlee is called in to investigate the mutilated carcass of a mule found in the Grand Canyon–and hopefully, solve the disappearance of its rider. But this isn’t the only recent disappearance. In fact, it may be just the first clue, the key to unraveling a rash of other similar missing persons cases in the canyon. . .
While waiting for more details on this book, Baldacci’s fans can pick up his latest novel, the next book in his Amos Decker series, The Fallen, in stores April 17th.
