After a stunning debut with Restitution, Vance makes a triumphant return: a whip-smart, fast-paced, and eerily timely thriller that ties the 2008 global economic meltdown and international energy wars to the heartbreaking story of one family's loss and slow re-formation.
Manhattan, 2002: Mark Wallace appears to have it all--married to the love of his life with two bright, beautiful children and a job that keeps them all living in style--until one winter night when his twelve-year-old son, Kyle, is snatched off the street.
Seven years later: Kyle was never found, and the loss has almost destroyed the Wallaces' marriage, as well as Mark's career. Personal connections have enabled him to recast himself as an energy consultant to the hedge fund community. Now, on the same day that a natural gas pipeline in remote western Russia is blown up by suspected terrorists, a new lead opens up in the case of Kyle's disappearance. When a colleague slips him classified information on Saudi oil production and then suddenly commits suicide, it remains for Mark, with the help of his tech-savvy daughter and still-grieving wife, to find the sinister connections between everything that's happening.
