Ian Hunt is the police dispatcher for the small town of Bulls Mouth, East Texas. Just as his shift is ending he gets a call from his fourteen-year-old daughter, Maggie.

Maggie, who has just been declared dead, having been snatched from her bedroom seven years ago. Her call ends in a scream.

The trail leads to a local couple, but this is just the start of his battle to get his daughter back. What follows is a bullet-strewn cross-country chase along Interstate 10, from Texas to California.

The riveting new novel from the acclaimed author of Acts of Violence and Low Life is a brilliantly original, blood drenched thriller, about the lengths a man will go to for his daughter.

Review:

"Reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy''s tales of vengeance, The Dispatcher is an impressively accomplished performance that never strains for mythic power but nevertheless acquires it."--"Sunday Times" (London)

"A well-written, fast-paced book . . . along the order of Quentin Tarantino and with a long and bloody trail to the end."---Charlaine Harris, bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series

"The breathless pace virtually demands a single-sitting read. . . . Over the past few years a new generation of crime writers has come perilously close to recreating the jaded mindset of the classic noir thrillers, but no one has succeeded quite like Jahn. . . . [He] leads the new noir pack with a series of palm-sweating situations that pay homage to the classics of the genre while feeling entirely fresh."--"Financial Times"

"Reads at a cracking pace [and] is a one-sitting, fist-in-mouth read."--"The Guardian"

"Tense, thrilling. Jahn has written a real page-turner, well crafted with convincing characters and an involving plot."--"We Love This Book"

"A nerve-shredding thriller with plenty of energy and a tight plot."--"Big Issue"

""The Dispatcher" grabs the reader on page one and never lets go. It's a classic yet bracingly contemporary story of kidnapping, violence, and a father's ferocious courage."---Jonathan Santlofer, author of"Anatomy of Fear"

"Reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy's tales of vengeance, The Dispatcher is an impressively accomplished performance that never strains for mythic power but nevertheless acquires it."--"Sunday Times" (London)

"Near pitch perfect . . . An adrenaline-pumped storyline and one that will leave you with your lower jaw resting on your chest. I don't believe anyone else is offering Jahn's insight and style of writing today. . . . [His] clipped and economical prose is to the bone. . . . Make sure you allocate sufficient hours to read in one sitting."---Rhian Davies, "It's a Crime!"

"A cross between Richard Ford and James Patterson . . . I guarantee that if you pick this up, then everything else in your life will immediately be pushed to the margins. . . . If you only read one book tomorrow, make it this one."---Dylan Jones, editor of"GQ," in "The Mail on Sunday"

Book Description:

The phone rings. It’s your daughter. She’s been dead for four months.
