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