An eighteen-year-old boy lies dying of leukemia. His only hope is a bone marrow transplant, but no one in his wealthy Virginia family can safely supply it. His last chance lies in finding his father, a man who disappeared before he was born. Police and private investigators can find nothing on a trail eighteen years cold. Hannibal Jones has two weeks to find the missing man, but his search turns up so much more: a woman who might be Kyle’s illegitimate sister, the woman who could be her mother, and the chauffeur who may have killed Kyle’s father.
Read A Review:

Hannibal Jones has been hired to find Kyle’s father. He disappeared eighteen years ago, right before Kyle was born. Now Kyle lies dying of leukemia. They believe his father could be a match to save his life.

Hannibal only has two weeks to find him. He follows a trail full of deception, conspiracy and greed. A woman who claims to be Kyle’s illegitimate half-sister appears. Hannibal isn’t as taken with her as Kyle and his family are. He begins to investigate her as well.

The story twists and turns before the surprising conclusion.

I must say that this book is not the type I normally read, but I devoured it in two days. It is great. I highly recommend it. I liked the fact it was set in DC which I know, but I also liked that it moved around to Texas and Mexico, places I’ve never been.

I look forward to more Hannibal Jones in the future. I highly recommend this book.
