With more than 120 million copies of her books in print and sold in more than 100 countries, her brand-new novel Spin is the second in the Captain Chase series.

The brilliant writer travelled all over the US visiting NASA facilities and gained insider access to one of the world’s most secret and impregnable institutions.

A crime writing legend, she is best known for her best-selling novels featuring Kay Scarpetta.

Her gripping new book called Spin is set in the aftermath of a NASA rocket launch gone terribly wrong.

Captain Calli Chase comes face-to-face with her missing twin sister, as well as the startling truth of who they really are.

Now, a top secret program put in motion years ago has spun out of control, and only Calli can redirect its course.

Captain Chase must race against time to thwart a plot that leaves the fate of humanity hanging in the balance.
