The second book in Nancy Allen's fast‑paced new series where a corrupt NYC legal system pushes a lawyer to take justice into her own hands.


Someone murdered Kate Stone’s father. Then they came for her. And now that Kate has left her job as an assistant district attorney, she’s finally free to hunt down the perpetrator. Kate suspects that Wall Street financier Ian Templeton is behind the vicious and violent attacks against her and the people she cares about.
The D.A. warns Kate that Templeton is untouchable, she remains convinced that the best way to bring him down is to expose his latest fraudulent scheme, a new cryptocurrency scam. But while she is tracking Templeton, someone is also tracking her. Kate believes that her pursuers were hired by Templeton to stop her. However, they may be working for someone with a larger agenda instead. Kate’s father was a New York City cop with evidence of a conspiracy, and she may have stirred up a cold case and a new enemy.

Despite the danger, it's finally time to get justice. She’s going to find the people responsible. Even if it kills her.

    JAMES PATTERSON, #1 New York Times bestselling author, on Renegade
  • “Renegade reminded me of why Allen is one of my favorite crime-fiction writers working today. Renegade is a rapid-moving freight train of a novel with twists and unpredictable turns that never fail to amaze the reader. The novel is told with great panache and sophistication, which produces a thrilling and unforgettable tale.”
