Details

When market researcher Arthur Cathcart emerged from a coma and set out to track down whoever murdered his wife, the results were far from pre-ordained. Wounded and alone, grief-stricken and hiding off the grid, he thought the only mystery was who killed Florencia, and why? But the quest for justice uncovered a host of fresh mysteries, just beginning with an elaborate fraud and embezzlement scheme, complete with dummy corporations and off-shore numbered accounts.
So in place of who killed Florencia? he was forced to ask who was Florencia? There was nothing about their lives together that answered this or any of a thousand questions she left behind. All he really knew was she came from Chile, had a knack for figures and owned her own insurance agency.

Arthur takes off again to do what he knew he did best: Finding stuff out. What follows is a chase around the world, from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, and remote parts north and south. No longer alone, with Natsumi Fitzgerald at his side, armed with a portfolio of false identities, hard-learned tradecraft and the continued cloak of anonymity, Cathcart plunges into the world of international terrorism and government intrigue, where the currency is betrayal and the rewards are calculated in blood and revenge.

"In an adrenaline-fueled chase across beautiful European locales, Knopf has a smart, sizzling, jet-setting series with a delightful touch of wry wit." --Booklist, Starred Review

"The Nero Award winning Knopf's sequel to the must-read Dead Anyway is a storytelling gem of a caper. The author is particularly talented at filling in a complicated backstory, balancing light humor with violence and maintaining a blistering pace." --Library Journal, Starred Review

"Cries of the Lost is a well-written suspense filled with action, conspiracy, and unexpected twists and turns. The fascinating plot involves the cracking of a code and linking clues and connections. This makes the book a puzzle-lovers' dream, with the element of danger increasing at each new location. An excellent read." --New York Journal of Books, Starred Review

"You don't need to have read Dead Anyway in order to enjoy Cries of the Lost. The author cleverly insinuates exposition, and serves up some fascinating lore. Maybe more than you'd ever wanted to know about code breaking, security, cars and all things technological. But you ll learn something. And pick up delicious tidbits, such as finding out about a wonderful Italian tradition the passeggiaata a see-and-be seen stroll around a town or village, of a late afternoon or early evening, a promenade that signals the end of the workday and anticipation of dinner. Why not try out this custom, stroll, then dine, then settle in with Cries of the Lost." --Joan Baum, NPR
