Ben Brice lives alone in the New Mexico wilderness, where he battles memories of Vietnam with oceans of Jim Beam. Miles away in Texas, his estranged son, John, an Internet geek turned billionaire, half watches his daughter Gracie's soccer game while conducting business on his cell phone. When her mother, Elizabeth, arrives, the coach reports that her uncle has already collected Gracie. But Gracie has no uncle - she was kidnapped.

From international best-selling author Mark Gimenez comes a terrifying child-in-jeopardy thriller in which dark family secrets make the finding of 10-year-old Gracie Brice more uncertain with every passing minute. And so begins a furious race against time to save Gracie from unknown kidnappers. With the FBI camped out in the Brice mansion, the family offers a reward of $25 million.

Somehow, Ben and John Brice must find Gracie before it is too late. As the story unfolds with riveting twists and turns, the listener discovers that behind the kidnapping is an extraordinary government plot that could change the course of American history.

    " Ben Brice is a drunk living alone in the New Mexico wilderness, where he custom builds furniture and battles memories of Vietnam with oceans of Jim Beam. Miles away in Texas, his estranged son, John, an Internet geek-turned-billionaire, half-watches his daughter Gracie's soccer game while on his cell phone. When her mother Elizabeth arrives, the coach reports that her "uncle" has already collected Gracie. But Gracie has no uncle--she was kidnapped. "

    " Abandoned this. Could not get past the OTT descriptive writing. Yes I get that they're rich and the wife has balls etc. Don't need it to be reinforced with every sentence. Pity. I gather the story itself is really good. "

    " Don't kidnap a kid whose uncle is a former Green Beret with not much to lose in life. "

    " 1st read by a new author, I will go back and read his first book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 1/30/2014

    " If you like James Patterson, You will enjoy this book even more. I could not put this one down. He also wrote "The color of law", another good one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn | 1/24/2014

    " Good new author "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lova | 1/18/2014

    " I'm quite disappointed with this book as to me the story line was not good and its has too simple ending. I read Mark Gimenez first book The Color of Law and it was so good, I thought that he is going to be the next John Grisham. But after reading this book I kinda have a little doubt about that. Then again its only his second book, if I'm not mistaken, so I hope he'll do better next time. I really like his writing character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 1/4/2014

    " Reminded me of John Brisham, but less predictable. Good book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 12/29/2013

    " this was a great 2nd book for Mark Gimenez, he's is becoming one of my favorite authors. a good story, puts in a place where you know this would be one of the worst places to be. it was a "tad" predictable "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 12/25/2013

    " Just listened to this audiobook for the 2nd time and enjoyed it greatly again. Lots of action, vivid characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 12/24/2013

    " "It was all just an endless succession of coincidences" - but very, very well written and impossible to put down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin | 12/21/2013

    " I listened to this with my sister when we drove to New York to see the Spice Girls. It's entertaining but forgettable. Little girl gets kidnapped, big government plots, and so forth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 11/17/2013

    " So far, so good. The characters, details, and plot are all well-thought out and well written. The book, thus far, is recommendable. More to come! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 7/5/2013

    " Enjoyed this, initially thought this was going to be a straightforward tale about a kidnap, however as the story went on the author showed his talents with broadening the story out, 2nd book I've read by Mr Gimenez & to me has a lot of potential to be a rival to big-hitters like Grisham. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shanna Calleja | 6/11/2013

    " Good story about kidnapping. Very gripping story!! "

    " A good thriller. Would make for an exciting movie. Lots of action. In the beginning of the book I was having some trouble with the coincidences HOWEVER the author nicely ties everything together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevinhenderson | 11/7/2012

    " Great story about family and redemption though a disappointing departure from Gimenez's typical legal thriller. It wasn't quite what I expected but turned out to be a great story with very real characters that you are immediately drawn to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Hanley | 10/9/2012

    " This was the fourth of his books I read almost in sequence and just as engaging and authentic as the others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neil Dcruz | 3/5/2012

    " Its a good read but repetitive at times with long descriptions and the ending was a complete anti-climax. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 2/21/2012

    " Came in the same library batch as The Color of Law so I read them both. A bit feeble in plot, although writing is reasonable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 7/27/2011

    " I have never read a book that thick so quickly. It took me about a week. I simply could not wait to find out what happened to Gracie (the abducted girl). I did skip a lot of the war remembrances though. Now on to another book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanialee | 3/8/2011

    " I really enjoyed this story. The characters had depth to them and an almost real quality about them. This is a great page turner till the end. "

    " I loved this book! Not for the topic, but because it was extremely well written and I couldn't put it down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jodi | 4/26/2010

    " Good story, but the language was pretty bad, as well as about a page that I had to skip. I wanted to love it, but couldn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neil | 2/13/2010

    " Its a good read but repetitive at times with long descriptions and the ending was a complete anti-climax. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig | 8/4/2009

    " This was a page-turner, but ... I kept turning the pages because I saw a great deal of promise in where the story could have led, but I'm not convinced it delivered. Still a good read, but I think several of the Q2 chapters could have been combined into one short chapter. "
