Detour | [James Seigel]

Detour

Central Park, New York. It was the small girl chasing a pink balloon that had given Paul and Joanna the idea; to end five years of failing to conceive, and to adopt. Which is why they are travelling to the Santa Regina orphanage in Columbia, to meet their new daughter, Joelle. It is meant to be a new beginning in their lives. But it is not the new beginning they were expecting. Columbia is a dangerous place, particularly for a foreigner with a wife and daughter to protect.

What the Critics Say

"Crisp prose, a breakneck pace, a surprisingly tart sense of humor, and some pointed social commentary give this thriller a good deal of bite." (Booklist)

    "Fantastic story, riveting and unusual concept"

    I really enjoyed this. It was interesting, believable and well read. Characters were believable as was the actual concept of the story.
