   schema:description "Two young men have vanished, and the investigation leads to troubling clues. As Banks and his team scramble for answers, the inquiry takes an even darker turn when a truck careens off an icy road in a freak hailstorm. In the wreckage, rescuers find the driver, who was killed on impact, as well as another body-- a body that was dead well before the crash. Banks, perceptive and curious as ever, feels himself being drawn deeper into a web of crime, and at its center someone dark and dangerous lying in wait."@en ;
