Six years ago in Uzbekistan, journalist Charlie Davis was wounded when the government fired on a group of protestors he was covering on assignment. He and his pregnant wife, Julie, barely escaped with their lives. On a trip to Disneyland with their children, Julie vanishes. As Charlie soon discovers, this isn't a random abduction. The further he goes to find her, the more it becomes clear that Julie isn't quite the person she seems to be. She's been harboring dark secrets that have come back to terrorize them all.

Review quote

"Gripping from the start ... this action-thriller shines in its action scenes." -- The Hollywood Reporter "A high-action thriller that stands out in a crowded field... Charlie sets out to rescue Julie with all the determination of a Vince Flynn or Brad Thor hero. Good backstory, original characterization, and a cinematic prose style add up to an exciting read." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A moving and suspenseful first novel... Tense and intriguing to the last page, this domestic thriller promises a bright future in crime fiction for Steinberg. Recommend this to fans of Harlan Coben and Lisa Unger." -- Booklist "Hank Steinberg's Out of Range blasts out of the gate and never stops galloping." -- Kathy Reichs, author of the Temperance Brennan and Tory Brennan series "With the speed of an ICBM and a plot straight out of 'Homeland', Out of Range is for those who like their terror stakes on red alert and their action set to high." -- Andrew Gross, New York Times bestselling author of 15 Seconds "Hope, desire, heartbreak, global intrigue, swift plotting and characters you'll love-Hank Steinberg's stunning debut has it all." -- Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Stay Close "Out of Range is an explosive international thriller, gritty and real, with vivid characters, dramatic international settings, and a sense of menace that grows almost unbearable. I absolutely loved it." -- Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Monster of Florence and co-creator of the Pendergast series "The mysteries of marriage collide with the page-turning suspense of a breakneck thriller in one of the most combustible reads of the year." -- Chuck Hogan, award-winning author of The Town and co-author of The Strain Trilogy

Today, in his safe suburban life in Los Angeles, that scare feels like a lifetime ago. Then, on a trip home from Disneyland with the kids, Julie suddenly vanishes.
