The "nimble and ingenious" (New York Times) thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author-now in paperback!
Shot twice by an unseen assailant, Dr. Marc Seidman lies in a hospital bed. His wife has been killed. His six-month-old daughter, Tara, has vanished. But then a ransom note arrives, giving him one chance to save her.
Forbidden to talk to the police or the FBI, Marc is helpless as the authorities hone in on a new suspect: him. And he doesn't know who to trust as deadly secrets-about his wife, about an old love he's never forgotten, and about his own past-surface. Torn between agony and hope, Mark finds himself clinging to one, unwavering vow: to bring Tara home at any cost.
In this New York Times bestseller, a man races against time to save his child. Plastic surgeon Marc Seidman wakes up in a hospital after nearly two weeks of being unconscious. He learns that he has been shot, his wife has been killed, and his infant daughter Tara is missing. He has a tough time convincing the police that he isn't the one responsible, especially because Marc can't remember the events of the shooting. A clue to his daughter's disappearance comes in the form of a ransom note, which demands that Marc pay Tara's kidnappers two million dollars without alerting the authorities. If he fails to follow instructions in every particular, the note warns, there will be "no second chance."
