About the Book

William Church, freelance recovery specialist based in San Francisco, tangles with a renegade gang of cashiered soldiers while attempting to rescue a young boy kidnapped during a visit to Central America with his family. Church is retained by the boy’s grandfather, Henry Kingstone, a wealthy and infl uential member of the San Francisco establishment who supplies Church with two million dollars in cash to use as ransom if a rescue by other means is not successful. In going after the gang, Church enlists the help of his sailing buddy who happens to be an FBI agent, together with an ex-Israeli who owns a mixed martial arts gym frequented by Church. Th e action takes Church on a fast-moving ride through Central America where he and his companions encounter all sorts of trouble as they track down those holding the kidnapped boy. An unexpected threat to Church appears just as the mission reaches its most dangerous phase - a threat brought on by the irresistible attraction of the Kingstone Ransom. Th e book is a sequel to the well-received 2009 novel simply entitled CHURCH which introduced this new anti-hero to the many fans of the action-thriller genre.
