The Dispatcher begins with Ian Hunt receiving a call at the end of his shift as the dispatcher in a small East Texas town. The call is from a girl who is being chased. The girl is his daughter. They had her funeral four months earlier. Ian begins the search, dealing with the politics of the sheriff’s department’s relationship with local police and the loyalties of locals and families in the small town. When they find the man who took his daughter, the chase begins. A chase that careens across the nation, leaving pain and death in its wake. Ian is driven to rescue his daughter and will spare nothing, not even his own life, to get her back. And as he’s driven down the road to the book’s resolution, you are dragged along for the harrowing ride by Ryan David Jahn’s prose.
