Publisher's Summary

From the author of Red Cat and Thick as Thieves: a gripping new thriller about a medical doctor with a powerful humanitarian impulse, an unhealthy appetite for risk, and a knack for finding himself between a rock and a hard place.

Adam Knox comes from a long line of patrician Connecticut doctors - a line he broke to serve with an NGO in the war-torn Central African Republic. His attempt to protect his patients there from a brutal militia ended in disaster and disgrace, and now he runs a clinic near Los Angeles's Skid Row, making ends meet by making house calls - cash only, no questions asked - on those too famous or too criminal to seek other medical care.

When a young boy is abandoned at his clinic, Knox is determined to find the boy's family and save him from the not-so-tender mercies of the child welfare bureaucracy. But Knox's search for the volatile woman who may or may not be the boy's mother leads him and his friend, a former Special Forces operator, into a labyrinth of human traffickers, Russian mobsters, and corporate security thugs and squarely into the sights of a powerful, secretive, and utterly ruthless family that threatens to destroy Dr. Knox and everything - and everyone - he holds dear.

Great Book and Narration

Probably one of the best books I have read this year. The plot was a familiar to anyone who reads true crime stories on the regular but it was still entertaining. The Narration was superb!

very disappointed

Got sucked into all the hype. the book is very predictable. had to make myself finish it. It is worth about half of what I paid. this same old sad story just told over again. was not impressed at all.

I hate criticizing a work that some one did, but i wish someone had told me about it before I purchased it.

It would make a good movie.
