Good as Gone

Douglas Corleone. Minotaur, $24.99 (304p) ISBN 978-1-250-01720-8
If James Bond were in the business of rescuing kidnapped children, he might easily be mistaken for Simon Fisk, the haunted hero of this slam-bam thriller from Corleone (Last Lawyer Standing). A former U.S. marshal, Fisk now employs his unorthodox skills recovering kids abducted by noncustodial parents to countries that don’t recognize U.S. custody decisions—a line of work he chose after a stranger snatched his six-year-old daughter six years earlier. Fisk has just extracted a boy from Bordeaux when French police strong-arm him into trying to help them find little Lindsay Sorkin, a six-year-old American kidnapped from her parents’ Paris hotel room hours earlier. With her father the designer of a cutting-edge weapons technology, Fisk fears the worst—but the blitzkrieg hunt and accompanying mayhem that ensues across several countries is far more harrowing than even he could have imagined. For readers willing to suspend disbelief, it’s an adrenaline rush with a character worth rooting for. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (Aug.)
