    Dr. Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life as a surgeon in private practice for a better one in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left the hospital at 2 a.m. have no such plans - they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt’s only thought is fleeing with his life. He does escape, but at a price: a head injury that lands him in the ICU...where he awakens to discover he’s being charged with murder. Sandra Murray is a fiery, redheaded lawyer who swore she was done with doctors after her last relationship.

    Story

    Every turn of story the actors ask, "is this why God has brought me here" "Is this what God wanted me to do?" Its a Christian title which was not clear to me to begin with. I find that annoying so I gave it one star. I just wanted to warn others.

    Richard Coulter is a man who has everything. His beautiful new wife is pregnant, his upstart airline is undercutting the competition and moving from strength to strength, his diversification into the casino business in Macau has been successful, and his fabulous Art Deco house on an Irish cliff top has just been featured in Architectural Digest. But then, for some reason, his ex-wife Rachel doesn’t keep her side of the custody agreement and vanishes off the face of the earth with Richard’s two daughters. Richard hires Killian, a formidable ex-enforcer for the IRA, to track her down before Rachel, a recovering drug addict, harms herself or the girls.

    Story

    I came across this writer and this series purely by accident whle browsing and reading reviews, and I wasnt so sure that it was my cup of tea. But the excellent narration by Gerard Doyle and the plain spoken prose of Mckinty drew me in to the lives of the characters. Indeed, Mckinty tells some pretty gritty stories, and the Michael Forsythe character is by turns smart, reckless, and just plain lucky that he makes it through so many near death experiences...it can become unbelievable that this guy continues to ge tout of jams the way he does.... but then Mckinty's descriptive passages take my breath away and set a scene so swell; they are not fancy or over the top, but vivid in a way that offsets the harsh reality of the lives he is tracking. There is also an intelligence and insight here that is rather rare.
    I consider McKinty to be among one of the great writers...and I have read the canon and then some, including much contemporary lit....this is above and beyond, and I strongly suggest it to anyone (adult...there are some pretty serious themes and also some pretty strong violent images)

    I've been thrilled to find that there are more books in this series and some other books that he has written (though I am unsure about the series for the younger set, I will listen to it) and I love this narrator to the point that I have searched out other books that he has narrated.
