As an investigative journalist, Jake Carlson has made a career of digging up the truth. Award-winning work for the network news and NPR have led to a lucrative job as a correspondent for a popular television news show. But soon, his life and career are derailed when he loses his wife, leaving him to raise their adopted son Sam. Afraid of being left parentless, Sam yearns to find his biological mother. Using his investigative skills to find the truth for his son, Jake uncovers a horrifying ring of deceit and black market child trafficking that he could never have imagined. Worse, Jake is inextricably tied to this nefarious syndicate--it gave him Sam. When it's revealed that Sam's bloodline involves a complicated inheritance from a politically powerful New England family, Jake knows that it's no longer only his life that is at risk, but his son's as well.
