After a horrific car crash, best-selling crime novelist Garth Wainwright has no memory of how he ended up at UCLA Medical Center with a wired jaw, a broken arm, and other serious injuries. In fact, he has no memories at all. Following a month-long hospital stay, he's released with the clothes he wore on admission, some keys, and a wallet. These are the tools he has to recover his life.
A taxi drops Wainwright off at the address on his driver's license. One of his keys fits the lock, but as he stands in the kitchen, he feels like a burglar in another man's home. After an exhaustive search, he finds an honorable discharge from the US Navy, a deed to his condo, and a marriage license. There's just one problem: he has no clue who his wife is.
Eventually, he learns that his wife, attorney Lacey Kinkaid Wainwright, was with him during the crash but subsequently vanished. Is she dead? Was her body snatched? Was she kidnapped?
The LA Sheriff's Department says the crash was no accident. Rather, it was a deliberate attempt to murder Wainwright. Logic says the person who tried to kill him is the one who has Lacey. But why? Wainwright's frantic search for his wife and his lost memories stalls when he discovers evidence of Lacey's hidden past life - a life that offends him and his sense of morality. Even so, he's committed to tracking her down and freeing her from whoever's holding her hostage, no matter the cost.
When Lacey's captor, the head of a vast crime cartel, is identified, Wainwright launches a perilous international rescue mission with the help of his longtime friend Greg Mulholland of the FBI, Boston DA Investigator Renato Wilson, and an extremely unlikely and deadly ally, whom he must learn to trust in order to save Lacey before it's too late.
With electrifying action scenes at every turn, author Walter Danley takes listeners on a white-knuckle journey.
