Earphones Award Winner

Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator George Newbern's performance of this riveting thriller is simply spellbinding. On Christmas Eve, American Frank Mercy, who is living in Australia with his pregnant wife, watches in horror from high ground as a tsunami sweeps away his family. Heroically assisting in the rescue efforts, he saves a boy from a sinking minivan only to find he can’t abandon the child to the authorities. But the boy is more than he seems, and there are ruthless people looking for him who will stop at nothing to get him back. Newbern masterfully portrays the Australian characters, the young children, and Frank’s American mother and friends, pulling listeners into this gut-wrenching story of second chances. This listening experience is not to be missed. A.C.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2016]
