The Shadow Tracer

A Thriller

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Sarah Keller is a skip tracer, tracking criminals who have gone on the lam. She’s also a single mother to five-year-old Zoe, living quietly in small-town Oklahoma—until an accident sends Zoe to the ER, and their life changes in a heartbeat. Medical tests reveal a desperate secret Sarah has been hiding for years: Zoe is not her daughter, but rather a girl once rescued from a nightmare of murder, vengeance, and harrowing family ties she can’t possibly remember. Sarah does. And someone wants to make sure she never forgets.

Now Sarah must abandon her carefully constructed life and take Zoe on the run. Using her knowledge as a skip tracer to stay off the grid, she must remain one step ahead of her pursuers if she is to stay alive, save Zoe, and bury the past once and for all.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 08, 2013 – Edgar-winner Gardiner s second stand-alone (after Ransom River) boasts another of the strong female characters she s known for and enough pulse-pounding action to satisfy the most avid thriller fan. Sarah Keller swore to her dying sister, Bethany, that she would take and protect Bethany s baby, Zoe, from the father, Nolan Worthe, and his father, Eldrick Worthe, the patriarch and self-proclaimed prophet of the Fiery Branch of the New Covenant a fanatical religious cult that extends across four Western states. Five years later, Sarah has made a new life for herself and Zoe in Oklahoma City, Okla., where a doctor examining Zoe figures out that Sarah is not the girl s mother, as she claims to be. For FBI agent Curtis Harker, Sarah is the key to his vengeance on the Worthes for killing his wife. For the Worthes, tracking down five-year-old Zoe is vital to their survival. Desperate Sarah calls on U.S Marshal Michael Lawless for aid. The ensuing bloody cross-country race is packed with surprises and harrowing escapes.

Customer Reviews

Shadow Tracer

I just finished "Shadow Tracer" and enjoyed it. Good characters, strong women, some surprises, lots of suspense, and well developed plot and characters. This is the second book in a row of Meg Gardner's books I've read in quick succession and both stopped with a cliffhanger and an unfinished story. I suppose it is to facilitate a sequel, but I think it literary dishonesty. But that's just me. Her earlier books were not like that and I enjoyed them very much.
