A Tennyson Hardwick Novel

Wealthy American actress Candi Maitlin needs a bodyguard to escort her to an orphanage where she wants to adopt a little girl. While trying to reconnect with April in South Africa, Tennyson agrees to help Candi, not realizing the mess he is walking into.
Months later, Candi is married to a South American billionaire and the couple asks Tennyson to act as a bodyguard at the child’s birthday party. But something terrible goes wrong and the little girl is kidnapped. Fired by Candi and her husband, Tennyson is overwhelmed with guilt and can’t let the case rest. Soon he has discovered that the kidnappers are part of a Pan-African gang who operate in the United States. As Tennyson struggles to unravel the lies that surround the case—including the ones Candi tells him—the baby’s life is at stake.
This thrilling page-turner will have readers waiting with bated breath to discover what lies behind the secrecy and causes men and women to risk jail (or worse) to gain power and wealth—even if it means risking the life of an innocent child.
