A loving husband is forced into an impossible dilemma: let his wife die or kill a perfect stranger. A brilliantly pacy, high-concept thriller for fans of Harlan Coben, John Marrs and TM Logan.
Gary Foster's life is finally heading in the right direction. After years of trying, his wife, Beth, is pregnant, and he recently opened a business with his brother.
But one phone call changes everything.
After collapsing suddenly, Beth is rushed to the hospital. Tests reveal a devastating diagnosis: an inoperable brain tumour. Their only hope is an expensive experimental treatment available abroad, with a cost that's out of their reach. And Beth's time is running out.
Then a strange man approaches Gary and offers the money he needs, on one condition: that he kill someone, no questions asked. End one life to save another.
Faced with this impossible choice, Gary will find out how far he's willing to go to save his wife.
But as the dire consequences of his actions begin to hit home, can he save his own?
