When single father Danny Goodman suddenly finds himself unable to afford the private school his teenage daughter adores, he has no one to turn to for financial support.
In what seems like a stroke of brilliant luck, Danny meets Thomas Galvin, the father of his daughter’s new best friend, who also happens to be one of the wealthiest men in Boston. Galvin is aware of Danny’s situation and out of the blue offers a $50,000 loan to help Danny cover his daughter’s tuition. Uncomfortable but desperate, Danny takes the money, promising to pay Galvin back.
What transpires is something Danny never imagined. The moment the money is wired into his account, the DEA comes knocking on his door. Danny’s impossible choice: an indictment for accepting drug money that he can’t afford to fight in court, or an unthinkably treacherous undercover assignment helping the government get close to his new family friend.
As Danny begins to lie to everyone in his life, including those he loves most in the world, he must decide once and for all who the real enemy is or risk losing everything—and everyone—that matters to him.
Another awesome read by Mr. Finder. It is easy to see why several of his books have been turned into movies. This book needs to be the next one turned into a movie. I rushed through this book because I could not stop reading it. It would have been a one day read except I took this book with me to work. I left it at work on purpose because I wanted to savor it and make the book last as long as I could.
Danny is one of those down in his luck type of guys which can be depressing sometimes. Danny did not come off this way at all. In fact, if anything he grew a back bone as the story progressed. However he was a bad actor. I won't go into details as I don't want to give anything away. Let's just say that Danny is lucky that it all turned out good in the end or he may not be alive.
