Agents of the state murdered his wife and took his son. Now they’re coming for Danny Ash.

Framed as a terrorist, the mild-mannered stay-at-home dad, desperate to find his child, has to evade both law enforcement and killers in the pay of shadowy vulture capitalist Victor Fabian, whose influence reaches deep into the White House. Fabian, battling political enemies and the creeping dementia that has him in its grip, is determined to silence Ash who has linked him to his wife’s murder. As he tracks his son through an American heartland scarred by poverty and opioid addiction, Ash has to confront a dark secret from his past even as he fights to save the boy’s life.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A highly effective thriller, where forces of good and evil are soon identified…Clearly inheriting the mantel of Jim Thompson and Donald Westlake (and admittedly strongly influenced by them), this walk-on-the-dark-side author will also appeal to readers of early Garry Disher and Jeff Lindsay. The writing is smooth, the action flawless—and the depths of evil displayed are unforgettable.”

    New York Journal of Books

  • “This is a fast-paced action novel that will get your heart racing and rooting for the main character. A nail-biter that will have you on the edge of your seat.”

    Seattle Book Review

  • “Fans of action-packed, cinematic thrillers will best appreciate this one.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “[A] briskly paced, vigorously written thriller about a man out to rescue his kidnapped ten-year-old son…The Hitchcockian chase, speeding from the Northwest to the East Coast in search of the child, is the focus, and it’s more than enough. Fast from the starting gate all the way to the finish line.”
