Paperback: 308 pages

Publisher: Thomas & Mercer (February 24, 2015)

In one hand, small-time crook Stokes holds a backpack stuffed with someone else’s money—three hundred and fifty thousand dollars of it.

In the other hand, Stokes has a cell phone, which he found with the money. On the line, a little girl he doesn’t know asks, “Daddy? Are you coming to get me? They say if you give them the money they’ll let you take me home.”

From bestselling author James Hankins comes a wrenching story of an unscrupulous man torn between his survival instincts and the plight of a true innocent. Faced with the choice, Stokes discovers his conscience might not be as corroded as he thought.

[A] fine, offbeat novel . . . the author’s skill in bringing this off is magical, since Stokes is not an engaging rogue . . . a novel crammed with crackling dialogue and characters who are, unfortunately, all too true to life.”–Booklist
