Twelve years after a kidnapping destroyed former US Marshal Simon Fisk's family, he is newly determined to find the people responsible for taking his then-six-year-old daughter. He refuses to step away from the cold case, even after enduring months of dead ends and frustration. And then, at last, he gets a break. On a brutal January night, Simon finds an urgent message on his computer. Within a matter of hours, he is on a flight to Dublin, setting off to find a girl who may be Hailey Fisk --- before she's arrested for murder.
Prominent U.S. Senator James Wyckoff hires former government agents-turned-private security consultants Janson and Kincaid to locate his teenage son, Gregory. Gregory's girlfriend, Lynell, has been found strangled in a Seoul hotel, and Gregory has fled the city to avoid being arrested for the crime. But Senator Wyckoff insists that his son is innocent. When Janson and Kincaid realize they're being hunted by an assassin, they suspect that this crime --- and the cover-up --- were orchestrated by a shadowy unit of the U.S. State Department as part of a larger plot to provoke violence between North and South Korea.
When movie studio mogul Edgar Trenton’s teenage daughter, Olivia, is kidnapped during a violent home invasion, former U.S. Marshal Simon Fisk is called upon to ensure a smooth ransom exchange. But once it becomes clear that the kidnappers never intended to return Olivia to her parents, Simon must follow a lethal trail that will lead him from the powdery white sand beaches of the Cayman Islands through the wild jungles of Costa Rica, and into some of the darkest and deadliest cities of South America.
Former U.S. Marshal Simon Fisk works to track down and recover children who were kidnapped by their own estranged parents. However, haunted by the disappearance of his own daughter years ago, he won’t touch stranger abduction cases. Until, that is, six-year-old Lindsay Sorkin disappears, and the French police deliver Simon an ultimatum: he can spend years in a French jail for his actions during a past case, or he can work with them now to find Lindsay.
