New York Times bestselling author C.J. Box's novels have been called "red hot,"* "edge-of-your-seat read[s]," † and "unforgettable, powerful." ‡ Now he delivers a novel that will steal your sleep as much as it will wrench your heart. It's a novel about something that could be anyone's worst nightmare. . . .

Jack and Melissa McGuane have spent years trying to have a baby. Finally their dream has come true with the adoption of their daughter, Angelina. But nine months after bringing her home, they receive a devastating phone call from the adoption agency: Angelina's birth father, a teenager, never signed away his parental rights, and he wants her back. Worse, his father, a powerful Denver judge, wants him to own up to this responsibility and will use every advantage his position of power affords him to make sure it happens. When Jack and Melissa attempt to handle the situation rationally by meeting face-to-face with the father and son, it is immediately apparent that there's something sinister about both of them and that love for Angelina is not the motivation for their actions.

As Angelina's safety hangs in the balance, Jack and Melissa will stop at nothing to protect their child. A horrifying game of intimidation and double crosses begins that quickly becomes a death spiral where absolutely no one is safe.

How far would you go to save someone you love?

C.J. Box has once again written a bone-chilling thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page.
