Walk the Wire by David Baldacci (Oct 2020)

10.70

FBI consultant Amos Decker and his colleague, Alex Jamison, are summoned to the remote North Dakota Badlands when a hunter discovers the remains of a woman out on the Great Plains. She appears to have had a post-mortem performed on her, reminiscent of those seen on TV cop shows but this time, there was no slab, morgue or camera in sight. The reason why Irene Cramers murder merits an FBI investigation becomes rapidly clear when key questions surface about the womans mysterious past. As a teacher at a school managed by a local male-run sect, the Anabaptists, little is known about who she really was or where she came from. What was her true identity? And what did she have to hide? Seeking information from the local community, Decker and Jamison observe the local town of London, North Dakota, which sits at the very heart of the fracking industry. Enriched with oil money, jealousy and a deep-set rivalry between its richest investors lie beneath a veneer of glitz and opulence. But it is the nearby eye in the sky, the London Air Force Station, which may hold the answers. Acting as an early warning system, it can detect a nuclear threat to the US. Was Irene Cramers death connected in some way to the highly classified facility? When a mysterious government contact reaches out to assist their investigation, Decker realizes that this town holds secrets so explosive that their implications could destabilize the entire country…
