A lengthy novel about reviving failed relationships and protecting young people from abuse, Suzanne Brockmann's latest thriller in the Troubleshooter series unfolds in Las Vegas.

Navy SEAL Izzy Zanella and his estranged wife, Eden Gillman, try to salvage their troubled marriage so that they can convince the court that they can provide a better home for Eden's brother Ben than an abusive step-father who has been making the boy's life hell.

Eden's older brother, Danny, and his girlfriend also agree to help get Ben into a safer and more secure home environment. Like his sister, Danny has also been trying to weather a rocky relationship and this situation may help to close the rift.

The whole situation becomes far more volatile when Ben befriends a young runaway fleeing from a child prostitution ring. When the bad guys kidnap Ben, a deadly standoff begins. No stranger to dealing with violence, Izzy will call upon his arsenal of professional skills to get Ben back and hold his very unconventional little family together.

Action packed, romantic suspense stories have become Suzanne Brockmann's forte and the Florida writer has won numerous awards including Romance Writers of America #1 Favorite Book of the Year for 2000, 2001 and 2002. With more than forty novels to her credit, she has a wealth of appreciative fans who span international boundaries.
