A young boy is separated from his parents during a plane flight, and the ensuing search is further complicated by determined men who want the $100 million in bearer bonds that are in the boy's stuffed lion

Blackwell North Amer
Former DEA agent Douglas Fleming is the envy of his friends. He has everything he thought he could ever want: a successful business, big home, two cars, beautiful wife, healthy son, a perfect life and marriage. Then suddenly, an inexplicable barrage of bizarre coincidences and accidents begins to shatter his marriage and his business. Facing financial ruin and frantic for money, Fleming falls back on contacts from his old DEA days.
Risking everything, Fleming decides to take off on a flight from Caracas to New York with his wife and nine-year-old son - who is carrying a toy lion stuffed with $100 million in bonds. But by the time the plane lands in New York, the boy has disappeared, and with him the $100 million.
The nightmare search for his son begins. Scouring the world, Fleming watches the drama broadcast live on CNN. He witnesses the televised lies of his best friend, the tearful pleas of his wife, sees himself vilified as a kidnapper, and becomes himself a fugitive. For a breakneck five days, Fleming races government agents and international criminals from New York to Washington, Bangkok, Zurich, and Chicago. And as he pursues his son, the boy, too, maneuvers perilously through a threatening world of violence and intrigue, awaiting the moment to reveal secrets of his own.
