About The Book

When ten-year-old Eddie Haldon's sister dies, John Cuddy promises to protect the boy, until young Eddie suddenly disappears, forcing John to begin what may be a wild goose chase through a world of greed and madness.

When he sees the Dodge by the side of the road, two kids staring helplessly at its flat tire, John Cuddy has to stop. The boy's entreaty triggers a long-buried memory from Vietnam, and Cuddy makes him a promise. Less than 24 hours later, the boy is missing and his companion is dead, and Cuddy is off to fulfill his pledge to a young boy.
