Ellie McEnroe is back in HOUR OF THE RAT, the sequel to Lisa Brackmann’s smash hit debut, Rock Paper Tiger a New York Times and USA Today bestseller. Eager to shed the haunting memories of the last year, Ellie agrees to do a favor for an old war buddy that gets her out of Beijing (and away from her mother, who has long overstayed her welcome). The breathtaking Chinese countryside is totally worth the endless hours of train travel, and Ellie is just starting to relax. But there are depths to this favor that she couldn’t have predicted, and soon Ellie finds herself in the middle of a bottomless conspiracy that threatens millions of lives—including her own.
