The new novel from New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder, "the master of the modern thriller", about a father who is forced to make a choice with unspeakable consequences.
When single father Danny Goodman suddenly finds himself unable to afford the private school his teenage daughter adores, he has no one to turn to for financial support.
In what seems like a stroke of brilliant luck, Danny meets Thomas Galvin, the father of his daughter’s new best friend, who also happens to be one of the wealthiest men in Boston. Galvin is aware of Danny's situation and out of the blue offers a $50,000 loan to help Danny cover his daughter's tuition. Uncomfortable but desperate, Danny takes the money, promising to pay Galvin back.
What transpires is something Danny never imagined. The moment the money is wired into his account, the DEA comes knocking on his door. Danny's impossible choice: an indictment for accepting drug money that he can't afford to fight in court, or an unthinkably treacherous undercover assignment helping the government get close to his new family friend.
As Danny begins to lie to everyone in his life, including those he loves most in the world, he must decide once and for all who the real enemy is or risk losing everything - and everyone - that matters to him.

- Amanda "I rate as follows: 5 Stars = Loved it. 4 Stars = Really liked it. 3 Stars = Liked it. 2 Stars = Didn't like it. 1 Star = Hated it."
Slow moving, took too long to get to any interest
Unlikable main character, lazy and stupid with no apparent strength.
No, and honestly I find the author's books very hit and miss, really like some but this was very disappointing.
Narration was ok
Beginning, you felt the groundwork should have been much faster. I am not a writer so I will not presume to write but the book and characters did not draw me in.
Stronger main character.
