When attorney Marcus Glenwood resigns from his prestigious corporate law firm to retreat to the small town of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, and rebuild his life after a devastating personal tragedy, he has no idea that the biggest, most emotionally trying case of his entire career is about to fall into his backyard. It is a fragile and spiritually wounded Glenwood who first meets his distraught clients, Alma and Austin Hall. Their daughter, Gloria, has disappeared in China while investigating the slavelike labor practices of a factory owned by the international giant New Horizons, the world's largest manufacturer of sports shoes and athletic gear. Moved and persuaded by Alma's pleading, Marcus agrees to take their case. But he cannot know how quickly his investigation will begin to untangle a web of greed and deceit stretching from Washington D.C., across international borders - or how desperately his former law colleagues will try to prevent him from uncovering the truth.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Hollingsworth | 2/11/2014

    " This book drew me in, and I stayed up very late last night because I wanted to finish it up. Really felt for the main character, and kept wondering if he was going to pull things out or crash and burn. Set in Rocky Mount, NC which is near enough to feel local, but not so close that I knew exactly where/what they were talking about to try and pick things apart. "

    " Having read 5 chapters, finished another book in 2 days, and have started reading yet another that I can't put down (The Help) this is getting a thumbs down from me.
