Ben Brice lives alone in the New Mexico wilderness where he battles memories of Vietnam with oceans of Jim Beam. Miles away in Texas, his estranged son, John, an Internet geek-turned-billionaire, half watches his daughter Gracie's soccer game while conducting business on his cell phone. When her mother Elizabeth arrives, the coach reports that her uncle has already collected Gracie. But Gracie has no uncle-she was kidnapped. From international best-selling author Mark Gimenez comes a terrifying thriller in which dark family secrets make the finding of ten-year-old Gracie Brice more uncertain with every passing minute. And so begins a furious race against time to save Gracie from unknown kidnappers. With the FBI camped out in the Brice mansion, the family offers a reward of $25 million. Somehow, Ben and John Brice must find Gracie before it is too late. As the story unfolds with riveting twists and turns, the reader discovers that behind the kidnapping is an extraordinary government plot that could change the course of American history. And time is running out... .

God has a plan for Ben Brice, or so his mother had always said and so he had always believed, right up until that dark night in Vietnam. Now, thirty-eight years later, Ben Brice is a drunk. He lives alone with a dog in the New Mexico wilderness, where he drowns his dark memories of war in whiskey and wonders what God's plan had been and why it had gone so wrong. His only connection to the outside world is Gracie, his ten-year-old granddaughter. When she is kidnapped after a soccer game in Texas, Ben puts down the bottle and goes in search of her, certain that his dark past has come back to haunt her—and he learns that his mother was right after all.
