Jack Sommers is a fairly ordinary accountant from Chicago.
Suddenly two men are dead, Jack is missing and so is eighty eight million
dollars. As lead counsel helping to close a huge business deal at the Jenkins
firm where he has worked for many years, all fingers are pointing at Jack and
he is nowhere to be found. Jack’s wife passed away a few years ago and recently
his daughter has been kidnapped by her grandparents and hidden away in the
Palestinian territory of Hebron in Israel. Liam, a private detective and
Catherine, his girlfriend, have been hired by Jenkins to defend the firm, locate
Jack and find the money. This suspenseful page turner takes us on quite a
journey from the Russian mob in Chicago to a hiding place Hawaii and finally Israel.
Piece by piece the puzzle is put together by Liam with his Irish charm and the
very good looking spy Kayla who has her own secret reasons to search out the terrorist
group she believes is planning something bigger than 9/11. In the easy fashion
that this author brought us the smash hit Once We Were Brothers, Ronald Balson grabs
the reader at full speed and won’t stop until justice prevails. Highly
recommend this in depth look at the dark side of both politics and greed while
simultaneously testing the bonds of love and friendship.
