Movie studio mogul Edgar Trenton's wife, Emma, is awoken one night to a violent invasion of her home. She is beaten up and terrified by four masked men-and when they leave, Emma realizes that the nightmare has only just begun: Her teenage daughter, Olivia, was abducted. When she and Edgar find a ransom note forbidding police involvement. Edgar can think of only one person he trusts to ensure a smooth ransom exchange: former U.S. Marshal Simon Fisk.
"Amazing...nonstop action." -Mystery Tribune
Haunted by his own daughter's unsolved kidnapping many years ago, Simon feels it's his personal duty to take on child abduction cases. But something about the Trentons' ordeal isn't adding up. . .and soon it's clear to him that the kidnappers never intended to return Olivia, regardless of how much her parents were willing to pay. Knowing he has nothing left to lose, Simon throws himself into the hunt for Olivia with reckless abandon, following a lethal trail that will take him from California coast to the Cayman Islands, through the wild jungles of Costa Rica, and into some of the darkest reaches of his own soul. Meanwhile, time is running out...
"If James Bond were in the business of rescuing kidnapped children, he might easily be mistaken for Simon Fisk...a character worth rooting for." -Publishers Weekly
