As the youngest bureau chief and head of the Chicago Police Department’s
Major Case Squad, Boone Drake seems to have it all under control. Only
those closest to him know that just a few short years ago, he lost
everything that mattered to him in a tragic accident. After years of
healing, his life is back on track. He recently married a wonderful
woman named Haeley, adopted her son, bought a beautiful home, and
rediscovered his faith. But Boone can’t fight the feeling that something
is about to go terribly wrong … again.

When an
all-too-personal case takes Boone to Beijing at a time when Haeley can
least afford to let him go, Boone is forced to make a difficult choice.
There he becomes enmeshed in a dangerous human-trafficking ring that
takes him through the famed Hutong District’s narrow streets, alleys,
and hovels. Teamed with a former Liberation Army officer, Boone has one
chance to pull off an elaborate sting and rescue a young boy before he
disappears forever.
