With the Prof clinging to life in an underground hospital facility, a man named Pryce shows up to make Burke an offer: professional care for the Prof and a clean slate for everyone in his family in return for Burke's services. Even though Pryce is a merciless man, never to be completely trusted, Burke knows he has only one choice, so he takes the job.Pryce tells Burke about a Saudi prince that liked to take his two-year-old son out with him during his sexual exploits in the seedier parts of the city. Then the son was kidnapped, right out from under the prince's grimy hands. The job was professionally done; the leads aren't cold; they're dead. If word were to get out, the prince would be disgraced and the U.S. would lose a valuable business partner. But Burke isn't in it for the prince, Pryce, or the political brass that stand to be tarnished by one man's despicable behavior. He is in it for himself, his family, and a child he hopes to save.To find the child Burke must walk deep into an international terrorist network and use some of the oldest connections of his long career, because after this job there is a new life awaiting him, and it looks like he is going to try and get it.

gripping story, great narrator

The story is vintage Vachss, with all the Burke-series characters in place (though Max a little less than usual). The storyline is a little too drawn out and far-fetcher but Christopher Lane as narrator truly makes up for that! His giving individual characters individual voices makes this a great novel!
