On an ordinary morning, Maria Colson takes her baby son Dylan to the corner store. She turns her back for only a few seconds. When she looks again, she sees his empty stroller, as Dylan is being abducted into a waiting van. Maria climbs into the van, but is violently thrown to the road where she is left for dead as the vehicle vanishes without a trace.
As Maria fights for her life and her anguished young husband keeps a beside vigil, the FBI and police across metro Sea-Tac and Washington State search for Dylan.
Seattle Mirror reporter Jason Wade is under pressure to bring in a big story, and the Colson kidnapping could be it. It’s certainly a bizarre case with pieces that just don’t add up: The Colsons are a hard-working couple. Former high school sweethearts. No problems. No enemies.
Then Jason and his dad, a private detective haunted by his former life as a cop, discover a grisly murder of a young woman that is somehow connected to the Colsons.
Now, in a dark Seattle underground of desperate dreamers and ex-convicts, Jason embarks on an investigation that parallels one led by Homicide Detective Grace Garner.
They’re both hunting for the one piece of the puzzle that connects the baby’s disappearance with a spine-tingling case of revenge. And time is running out, because whoever took little Dylan Colson is more dangerous than anyone could ever imagine.

Surgeon Richard Kurtz has no idea what’s going on, and this bothers him. It bothers him a lot.
Kurtz has the typical surgeon’s deep-seated mania for control and right now, too many things are happening, none of which make sense.
His most recent patient, an undercover cop, has had his brain scrambled by a sniper’s bullet. Another patient is dying because an incompetent colleague made one mistake too many. A third patient got hit by a car after OD’ing on a new, unknown narcotic, and Steven Hayward and his wife, both drug dealers, were found dead in bed with their detached heads propped up on the kitchen counter.
Not that any of this is Kurtz’ business. Kurtz is a police surgeon but as everybody keeps reminding him, police surgeons aren’t cops. They’re surgeons.
