Critically acclaimed author David Ball pens the compelling story of six American families and their desperate attempt to keep their newly adopted Chinese children. Before leaving China, authorities demand the infants be returned without offering the slightest explanation. What if three of the families refuse? What if they risk everything and attempt a renegade run through China with the babies?

Featuring a pulse-pounding narration by George Guidall, China Run will keep listeners on the edge of their seats from start to finish.
