Slow Burn: A Sam Kinkaid Mystery (Paperback)
This highly anticipated 3rd book in the Sam Kinkaid series begins with the kidnapping of Samantha Cates, daughter of Benjamin Cates, Executive Director of the Utah Department of Corrections, and Sam Kincaid's boss. Out of favor and recently demoted by Cates, Kincaid is riding a desk in the department's training division awaiting retirement. Believing the kidnapping might be the work of a vengeful offender, Cates asks Kincaid to help find his daughter and returns him to the Special Investigations Branch (SIB) on temporary assignment. Teaming with Salt Lake City P.D. Detective Kate McConnell, the two launch a desperate search to find the missing girl. Kincaid discovers two recent murders - one in Las Vegas, the other in Seattle - that appear to be connected to the Salt Lake kidnapping. Kincaid and McConnell are forced to pull out all stops as they learn the kidnapper is about to place the victim in a coffin and bury her alive.
