About the book: 
Detective Michael Bennett is New York's public enemy no. 1. But when the Mayor's daughter goes missing, there's only one cop who can bring her home.
 
The mayor of New York has a daughter who's missing. Detective Michael Bennett has a son who's in prison. Can one father help the other?
 
Bennett and the mayor have always had a tense relationship, but now the mayor sees in Bennett an exceptional investigator who might be willing to take on a case that needs to be kept under the radar. The two men strike the deal.
 
Sources lead Bennett to a homicide in the Bronx. The victim has ties to a sophisticated hacking operation - and also to the mayor's missing daughter. But this murder is part of a serial killing spree, one with national security implications. And suddenly Bennett is at the centre of a dangerous triangle anchored by NYPD, FBI and an international crime organization.
 
Michael Bennett has always been an honourable man, but sometimes honour has to take a back seat. Survival comes first.
