ONCE YOU JOIN THE TRIBE, YOU'RE THERE FOR LIFE.
Becca Ortiz, Los Angeles Police Department psychologist, is fostering teenage runaway Ash.
But Ash can't bring herself to trust a cop, not after what she's been through. Her boyfriend Nate introduces her to the Tribe, his street-smart crew of delinquents and runaways, and Ash finally feels like she's found a home among the homeless.
So one night, she disappears. And as Becca frantically searches for her missing foster daughter, Ash finds herself entangled in the shadows of a criminal underworld, beginning to realise that there may be no way to leave the Tribe without paying a deadly price.
The search for a teenage runaway sends her foster mother, a psychologist working for the LAPD, on a dangerous journey through Los Angeles' criminal underworld, in this gripping new thriller by the author of the international bestseller Baby Doll and The Walls.

In this nail-biter from Overton (The Walls), LAPD clinical psychologist Becca Ortiz and her 16-year-old foster daughter, Ash, have been getting along well. Becca doesn't know, however, that Ash has reunited with her old boyfriend, Nate Sutton, whom she met on the streets. Nate lives in a tent city on Skid Row with the Tribe, a group of homeless teens ruled by an enigmatic woman named Mo. After one of the Tribe is beaten at Mo's behest, Nate asks Ash to run away with him, putting the two in Mo's crosshairs. With the help of Becca's police sergeant ex-husband, Becca kicks off a relentless cat-and-mouse game with a manipulative, murderous woman who will do anything to keep her "family" together. Readers will root for the deeply empathetic Becca, who's devoted to helping society's most vulnerable, and Overton shines a light on the plight of the mentally ill, foster children, and the homeless while building plenty of tension. Fans of bighearted thrillers will find a lot to like.
