heart-wrenching yet ultimately uplifting story of psychological suspense in

While his successful wife goes off to her law office
each day, Simon Connolly takes care of their kids, Jake and Laney. Now that
they are in high school, the angst-ridden father should feel more relaxed, but
he doesn’t. He’s seen the statistics, read the headlines. And now, his darkest
fear is coming true. There has been a shooting at school.
Simon races to the rendezvous point, where he’s
forced to wait. Do they know who did it?
How many victims were there? Why did this happen? One by one, parents are
led out of the room to reunite with their children. Their numbers dwindle,
until Simon is alone.
As his worst nightmare unfolds, and Jake is the only
child missing, Simon begins to obsess over the past, searching for answers, for
hope, for the memory of the boy he raised, for mistakes he must have made, for
the reason everything came to this. Where
is Jake? What happened in those final moments? Is it possible he doesn’t really
know his son? Or does he know him better than he thought?
Brilliantly paced, Finding Jake explores these questions in a tense and emotionally
wrenching narrative. Harrowing and heartbreaking, surprisingly healing and
redemptive, it is a story of faith and conviction, strength, courage, and love
that will leave readers questioning their own lives, and those they think they
know. Download and start listening now!
