A breaking story brings Tom Reed to the scene of the crime…
But this time, the victim is his wife.
San Francisco crime reporter Tom Reed is burned out. On the day he decides to finally quit the news business, a major story breaks. A jewel heist has gone violently awry, with the murder of a cop and the abduction of a female hostage. Reed rushes to the scene, his passion resurrected for one last big story.
But this time, there’s more at stake than a Pulitzer.
Because the woman taken by the two homicidal fugitives is Tom’s wife, Ann Reed.
And her capture wasn’t random…it was personal.
Paralyzed with anguish, Reed confronts San Francisco Homicide Inspector Walt Sydowski and other detectives on the case. They all know the odds are against Ann’s survival.
As his son, Zach, refuses to give up hope of finding his mother, Reed is determined to follow the grisly trail left by the killers until the very end. Now the clock is ticking down as Reed battles his demons and Sydowski in a life and death search for Ann…and he’ll break every rule to save her.
