The sophomore effort of Mark Gimenez, following The Color of Law, is something completely different. Ben Brice did not survive the Vietnam War well. He lives alone after his wife left him due to his drinking. Now he lives outside of Taos, NM, making beautiful, artistic furniture and slowing drinking himself to death. Near Dallas, his granddaughter, Gracie Ann Brice, is a lively 10-year old, in love with Orlando Bloom and a great soccer player. One day, after a soccer game, Gracie Ann is kidnapped and Ben must face his demons. His son, John, is a brilliant MIT computer engineer, whose wife, Elizabeth, is a high-powered lawyer. Both John and Elizabeth have their own demons to exorcise. As the kidnapping continues, no ransom notes or calls arrive. Why was Gracie Ann kidnapped? Who has kidnapped her? Why is there no body to be found? Ben must rise to the occasion. The novel requires some concentration to follow the disparate storylines but the fast-paced ending makes it all worthwhile.
