Sam works in cahoots with Leonie, a hacker whose young daughter has also been kidnapped. The question that haunts them is simple...can I kill an innocent man to save my child? Abbott handles this well and gives us a glimpse into the minds of people faced with impossible choices. He also introduces supporting characters who are fascinating and add conflict to an already complicated plot.
I enjoyed seeing the development of Sam and Leonie as the novel progressed. Even though it took me a few chapters to feel truly comfortable with the story line, once I got involved I didn't want to put the book down. I felt for both of these people who as parents didn't know if they would ever see their children again. I also felt for them as moral human beings who were directed to leave all morality behind in order to save their loved ones.
This is a well written story that makes me want to find the next book in this series.
