"Terrific - truly sinister, scary and suspenseful. Lyle never lets you down."
- Lee Child, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Raised as siblings by an itinerant "gypsy" family, knife expert Bobby Cain, trained by the US military in the lethal art of covert eliminations, and Harper McCoy, nurtured by the US Navy and the CIA to run black ops and wage psychological warfare, are now civilians. Of a sort. Employing the skills learned from the "family" and their training, they now fix the unfixable. Case in point: Retired General William Kessler hires the duo to track down his missing granddaughter, a Vanderbilt University co-ed. Their search leads them to a small, bucolic, lake-side town in central Tennessee and into a world of prostitution, human trafficking, and serial murder. The question then becomes: Will their considerable skills be enough for Cain and Harper to save the young woman, and themselves, from a sociopath with "home field" advantage, a hunter's skills, and his own deeply disturbing agenda?

"Skin in the Game is The Most Dangerous Game on steroids. Fast, relentless, and cunning."
- David Morrell, New York Times Bestselling Author of Murder as a Fine Art

Genre: Mystery
