Schoolteacher Samantha Morgan wants nothing more than to go to India and pick up the baby that’s being carried by a surrogate–the baby belonging to
her and her beloved late husband.
But a mysterious woman contacts her and brings up a long forgotten
event: her seduction by an older man at age fifteen. Samantha tries
to put that back in the past, but a friend and fellow victim of the seducer delivers some startling news: that older man is now the Republican candidate for president and is about to win the election.
A phone call urges her to come forward, tell all, and destroy his chances. She wants no part of the notoriety that would bring. Then her friend’s home is blown up, and it’s obvious that another, more sinister group wants her silent forever. She and her friend flee to India to get her baby, and there the real troubles begin.

This is very fast paced, action packed, and thriller book! There are many issues covered in the book: adoption, surrogacy, global issues, and political crime. I typically don’t read action thrillers, however this was a book that had just enough of the relationship and character building that I enjoy. Getting to know each character, their beliefs and motivations regarding adoption, supporting adoption, and covering secrets, was rather intriguing. While there were times I thought the storyline was a bit far-fetched, I did find myself looking forward to my nightly reading to know what was going to happen next. If you enjoy a political, action thriller, that also deals with domestic issues of adoption, single parenting, and relationships, this book will certainly entertain you.
