Cody Mcfadyen's thriller series starring FBI Special Agent Smoky Barrett series is an enormous bestseller around the world. Now this electrifying writer and his vulnerable, fearless heroine have returned. Smoky heads a team of FBI agents who hunt down the most horrific of criminals. That's only fitting, since early in her career, Smoky lost her husband and daughter to a violent madman who tied Smoky to a chair and sliced a curling scar across her face. Unbowed, Smoky continues to throw her heart into chasing twisted killers with her team of quirky, wise (and drily funny) agents. To work alongside this intensely talented FBI agent is an education in unravelling how evil slithers through the world. As THE TRUTH FACTORY opens, Smoky is pregnant and happily remarried. She and her team have just been summoned to a baffling scene in Denver: In a suburban cul de sac, two seemingly happy families have been slaughtered and carefully displayed. This leads Smoky into an enormous underground bunker and a plot that threads through the entire community. And then...well, this is a crime that will grip the world. Mcfadyen's debut SHADOW MAN introduced Smoky. His reviews have been dazzling, and he has sold over 3.6 million copies around the world and has been published in twenty-five languages. He appeals to many of the same readers as Karin Slaughter and Thomas Harris, and he's received high praise from Faye Kellerman, Lisa Gardener and John Douglas, author of MIND HUNTER.
