Description


A child he's never met. A danger he's never known.

That he's a father is news former navy SEAL Ben Slocum was not expecting. But once the initial shock wears off for the confirmed bachelor, he takes in the rest of what social worker Claire Chastain tells him: that his son is missing, abducted by a man who wants revenge against Claire and Sam's dead mother. And that Ben is now the child's only hope.

As Ben and Claire band together to track the two down, their concern for Sam draws them closer, each fighting feelings there's no time to explore. Because when their search takes them too close to Sam's abductor and his cohorts, the danger hits home--the son he's desperate to save, the woman he's desperate to love.... Ben's got one chance to take back what's his, and in one gunshot he could lose it all.

        Starred review from April 15, 2013

        PI Ben Slocum, a former Navy SEAL, is stunned to learn not only that he has a nine-year-old son, Sam, but that Sam has gone missing from his foster home and may have been kidnapped. It turns out that the boy is in the hands of a vicious, unpredictable child abductor. As Ben and social worker Claire Chastain try to run them to ground, the action, violence, and passion spike to red-hot levels as the tension and danger fly off the charts. VERDICT With strong, well-matched protagonists; a brave, vulnerable little boy; despicable villains; and breathtaking ardor, this suspenseful, emotion-packed page-turner sweeps its characters across the Southwest and into a survivalist camp in the murky Louisiana swamps and doesn't let up until the end. Although sprinkled with characters from the earlier series titles, this nonstop, high-stakes adventure stands on its own. Martin (Against the Odds) lives in Missoula, MT.
