Synopses & Reviews
< b>A New York Times Bestselling Author< /b>< P>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.
Orphaned at thirteen, Grace Silva clawed her way out of poverty and violence to become one of the most respected judges on the federal bench. Grace believes in the rule of law — lives it, breathes it. She has always been buttoned up and buttoned down.
Joe Faroe has learned that laws are made by politicians and politicians are all too human. He believes in the innocents, the ones getting ground up by governments that are too polarized or too corrupt to protect their own citizens.
Now Faroe is out of the business. Retired. He's through trying to save a world that doesn't want to be saved.
Then Grace comes to him, past and present collide, and Faroe finds himself sucked back into the shadows, tracking a violent killer who holds the life of Grace's son in his bloody hands.
