Sam Capra is very much a persona non grata with the CIA. He was the only survivor when a bomb exploded, killing all his colleagues in the firm's London office.

His bosses believe he is a killer and a traitor. On the run, his wife in a coma, he is contacted out of the blue by a mysterious group.

His infant son, whom he has never even held, has been kidnapped. The kidnappers will give him his son provided he kills someone for them.

Teaming up with a woman with a mysterious past whose daughter has gone missing, he must track his missing son across America before the CIA catch him or the kidnappers kill his child.

This is one great, fast-faced thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
