Overview
"The work of an author who continues to raise his sights and refine his immense talent."--Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Terrific book. Truly terrific. Tension throughout and tears at the end." --Sue Grafton

Judge Scott Sampson doesn't brag about having a perfect life, but the evidence is clear: A prestigious job. A loving marriage. A pair of healthy children. Then a phone call begins every parent's most chilling nightmare. Scott's six-year-old twins, Sam and Emma, have been taken. The judge must rule exactly as instructed in a drug case he is about to hear. If he refuses, the consequences for the children will be dire.

For Scott and his wife Alison, the kidnapper's call is only the beginning of a twisting, gut-churning ordeal of blackmail, deceit, and terror. Through it all, they will stop at nothing to get their children back, no matter the cost to themselves . . . or to each other.

"Complications and twists build to an unexpected climax that is both perfect and gut-wrenching."--Library Journal, starred review

"Grips the reader from the get-go and doesn't let up until the final twist."--Associated Press

Shamus Awardwinner Parkss excellent domestic thriller credibly portrays a family under severe stress. Federal judge Scott Sampsons tranquil and fulfilling personal life in rural tidewater Virginia with his wife, Alison, and twin six-year-olds, Sam and Emma, is shattered when someone impersonating Alison abducts Sam and Emma from their school. The kidnappers insist that Scott say nothing to anyone and that he await instructions about the impending sentencing of a minor drug dealer whose history merits severe punishment. The orders that Scott eventually receives threaten his professional position and prove to be but the prelude to extortion regarding another case with even greater consequences. The tension the catastrophe causes in Scott and Alisons marriage is palpable, and Parks (The Fraud and five other Carter Ross mysteries) makes even Scotts most paranoid suspicions reasonable in the circumstances. Veteran genre readers may anticipate some of the surprises, but theyll still find themselves on pins and needles awaiting the reveals. Five-city author tour. Agent: Alice Martell, Martell Agency. (Mar.)
