New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell returns with a chilling tale of the law gone wrong and a kidnapping that threatens more than one life. Orphaned at thirteen, Grace Silva clawed her way out of poverty and violence to become one of the most respected judges on the federal bench. Grace believes in the rule of law -- lives it, breathes it. She has always been buttoned up and buttoned down. Except once.

Joe Faroe has learned that laws are made by politicians, and politicians are all too human. He believes in the innocents, the ones getting ground up by governments that are too corrupt to protect their own citizens. He's been through the political meat grinder himself. It cost him his career, his freedom, and the woman who still haunts him. Since then Faroe has worked outside the rules as a kidnap specialist for St. Kilda Consulting, a Manhattan-based global business that concentrates on the shadow world. He is good at his work -- intelligent, confident, ruthless. Until a friend dies trying to kill him.

Now Faroe is out of the business. Then Grace comes to him and Faroe finds himself sucked back into the shadows, tracking a violent killer who holds the life of Grace's son in his bloody hands.

About the Author:

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell has more than eighty titles published to date with over twenty-four million copies of her books in print. She lives in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with her husband, with whom she writes novels under a pseudonym. Her favorite activity is exploring the Western United States to find the landscapes that speak to her soul and inspire her writing.



Maria Tucci began her career in the original production of Tennessee Williams' The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore. She won a Tony® nomination for her work in The Rose Tattoo, has starred on Broadway and off-Broadway, and in such films as Sweet Nothing and To Die For.

From AudioFile:

In Lowell's head-spinning story a teenaged boy is being held hostage by a Mexican drug lord to force his presumed father to return millions of dollars he stole in an investment scheme. The moral here is not to steal from Mexican drug lords. Fortunately for the kid, his mother is smart enough to enlist the aid of his REAL father to try to pull off a rescue that would make James Bond (and Batman) jealous. Whisky-voiced Maria Tucci proves you don't have to be a man to pull off an espionage thriller. She is a strong performer who ramps up the tension making a strong novel even stronger.
