A New York Times Bestselling Author Orphaned at 13, Catherine Silva clawed her way out of poverty and violence to become a highly respected federal judge. Cate believes in propriety and the rule of law. She has always been buttoned up and buttoned down. Except once. Joe Faroe doesn't have much faith in laws. He believes in the innocents, the overlooked citizens who get ground up by governments. He's a kidnap specialist for St. Kilda Consulting, a Manhattan-based global business that concentrates on the shadow world where governments can't go. Until a friend dies trying to kill him. Now he's through trying to save a world that doesn't want to be saved. Then Cate comes to him, past and present collide, and Faroe is sucked back into the shadows, tracking a violent killer who holds the life of Cate's son in his bloody hands.

Publishers Weekly, 2006-04-17 A mother's worst nightmare of an endangered child is just one breathless element of Lowell's latest romantic thriller (after Always Time to Die). Newly divorced California judge Grace Silva discovers her billionaire ex-husband, Ted Franklin, is missing, after she's summoned to the exclusive Mexican prep school where her 15-year-old computer whiz son, Lane, is being held hostage. Ted has crossed Hector Rivas Osuna, the ruthless kingpin of the most violent crime family in Tijuana, and Grace learns that Lane will be killed if she doesn't turn over the millions Ted has stolen from Osuna. She seeks the help of Joe Faroe, an ex who predated Ted and who may be Lane's biological father; Joe works for an elite private investigation firm. Lowell's convincing depiction of the Mexican drug trade illuminates the dangerous intersection of her characters' personal lives with international politics and organized crime. Events unfold in a maze of talk and double-talk, but the payoff is solid as the family reunites, finding that both love and the price of freedom are nonnegotiable. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
