If you love intense thrillers, you'll enjoy Gregg Hurwitz's The Program. In the 2nd installment of the Tim Rackley Thriller series, Tim Rackley had been recruited by Will Henning to extradite his step-daughter Leah from a cult, once he retrieved his badge back from the US Marshals. With no information to go on, he looked for clues and talked to past and current cult members to get his ticket in. Under a new persona, he went to the Program, a mind-control colloquium, when he saw Leah. From there, he found his way to talk to her and to get her out, while he now wound up with a special VIP ticket. From there, he convinced Leah proof of what the Teacher did, and discovered a way out, after he created an intervention. From there, things went awry, when his cover was blown, and she was in danger. In the end, he brought it all down and returned Leah safe. What an enjoyable thrill ride.
This was another shocking and explosive thriller. I still continue to care about Tim Rackley, and and I also cared about the Hennings as well. I did feel bad for Leah, who ended up in a cult. I did like the central Virginia area for the location of the settings. I didn't like the program one bit and the people, including the creepy Teacher, who were involved in it. This would leave you breathless and shaking all over. Great drama, excellent suspense and action, and tons of intrigue along the way.
