Description

Central Park, New York. It was the small girl chasing a pink balloon that had given Paul and Joanna the idea; to end five years of failing to conceive, and to adopt. Which is why they are travelling to the Santa Regina orphanage in Columbia, to meet their new daughter, Joelle. It is meant to be a new beginning in their lives. But it is not the new beginning they were expecting. Columbia is a dangerous place, particularly for a foreigner with a wife and daughter to protect. Paul would do anything for Joanna, and now he is going to have to. He's got eighteen hours to get a deadly consignment to an address in New York. He dare not be late. He dare not dial 911. Because if the delivery doesn't arrive, he'll never see his newly created family ever again ...

Professional reviews

"The Breidbarts' longtime wish for a child is about to come true when they travel to Colombia to adopt a baby girl. The trip quickly gus bad when their new daughter is replaced by another baby, and the Breidbarts are blackmailed into delivering drugs in exchange for their daughter. They're surprised at their quick transformation into parents willing to lay down their lives for their child, and they wonder if that's exactly what will be required of them. Holter Graham's delivery draws listeners into the fears and anxiety of the characters as they wonder if they'll survive their ordeal. S.K.P. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
