Cover for The Stolen Ones by Owen Laukkanen. A sinister photo of stacked, large metal cargo crates. One is open and empty.Boston Globe: This novel, the fourth in the Stevens and Windermere series, is a police procedural with the pulse of a thriller, a page-turner that lifts you up at chapter one and hurls you forward. Tightly plotted events unfold from the point of view of the sisters, the special agent, and the bad guys as stakes rise and evidence leads investigators from Montana to Manhattan.

The prose is clean and clear, and Laukkanen knows when to pull the camera back and let the reader’s imagination take over. In a pleasant twist, this thriller with strong, flawed, and fully fleshed out heroes and villains presents its female victims as equally three dimensional — and resourceful as well.
