All Lt. Sam Starrett needs is a signature on the dotted line and his disastrous marriage will be over. The problem is that his wife, Mary Lou, has not been in contact with him for three weeks—and she currently has custody of their daughter. Sam decides to drive to Sarasota to confront Mary Lou, but when he arrives, he discovers a badly decomposing female body and his daughter is nowhere. Nearing panic, Sam attempts to contact his FBI agent friend, only to get his nemesis, Alyssa Locke, on the phone.

Things also look bad for Sam's SEAL Team 16. Lt. Commander Thomas Paoletti is being questioned about weapons used in the attempted assassination of the president six months ago. While it was SEAL Team 16 who saved the president, someone seems determined to implicate them, including Sam, in a conspiracy. Could these two seemingly unrelated matters be connected? Is Mary Lou the key to solving the conspiracy theory?

With her newest book, GONE TOO FAR, bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann makes the leap into hardcover. Fans of SEAL Team 16 have been waiting a long time for Sam's story to play out—and it was definitely worth the wait. This is her best book to date! (Jul., 464 pp., $19.95)
