They want what every young couple wants: a child of their own. But Paul and Joanna Breidbart have been trying to conceive for five long years, a torturous process of failed medical procedures that nearly tore their marriage apart. When they finally decide to adopt, American agencies tell them they will have to wait years for their dream to come true. The couple agrees to fly to war-torn Colombia to adopt a baby girl.

Paul knows all about risks. As an insurance executive, he routinely calculates the odds of dying in a plane crash or being hit by a bus. Yet all the accident statistics in the world can't prepare him for what is about to happen. Paul and Joanna receive the baby girl of their dreams and their world seems perfect. Then one afternoon they briefly leave their baby daughter alone with their new nanny. When they return, something is disturbingly different about their child...and suddenly everything Paul values is in jeopardy.

Again, James Siegel gives us a tale of ordinary men and women thrust into extraordinary circumstances and a novel that confirms him as one of today's most powerful writers of psychological suspense.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Donna Mcnab | 2/16/2014

    " This book was non-stop action and suspense with lots of twists and turns and a very inventive plot. I am now ready for a book that is a little more relaxing. "

    " Loved it! James Seigel is the BEST author of suspense. He keeps me on the edge of my seat and up all night wanting to find out what happens next. "

    " I found the story not to bad. I have it four stars because of the action in the book. It kept me reading. I highly recommend this book. "

    " A fast read. Though thrillers involving drug running, guns, kidnapping, torture and desperation (or some such stuff), are too realistic and uncomfortable for me to read in general. I did know who the bad guy would be which caused me some anxiety, a feeling which I try to avoid in my life. (As opposed to say excitement or suspense) I like that there was a lot of "grey" areas in the book. Some things are not as they seem (like life) which gives the book 3 stars. "
