Synopsis:

On the heels of the international bestseller The Abomination comes the even more heart-hammering, adrenalin-fuelled second instalment of the Carnivia Trilogy

The spy: Intelligence analyst Holly Boland is trained to think differently, so when a U.S. army officer’s daughter is kidnapped from a military base in Venice, Holly is sure the abductors want more than a ransom.

The policewoman: Captain Kat Tapo has found a webcam feed embedded in the encrypted website Carnivia.com. It shows a terrified teenage girl, hooded and tied to a chair. A strand of text scrolls across the screen: “Sensory deprivation is not torture.”

The webmaster: Daniele Barbo, creator of Carnivia, has never let the government access his servers. Why would he help Kat and Holly find the missing girl? But then secrets are unearthed from Italy’s dark wartime past. Secrets that could put them all in danger . . .

The Abduction has begun.
