GOOD SON, THE by Michael Gruber - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Michael Gruber.
New York Times bestselling author Michael Gruber, a
member of "the elite ranks of those who can both chill the blood and
challenge the mind" (The Denver Post), delivers a taut,
multilayered, riveting novel of suspense
Pakistan, Sonia Laghari and eight fellow members of a symposium on peace
are being held captive by armed terrorists. Sonia, a deeply religious
woman as well as a Jungian psychologist, has become the de facto leader
of the kidnapped group. While her son Theo, an ex-Delta soldier, uses
his military connections to find and free the victims, Sonia tries to
keep them all alive by working her way into the kidnappers' psyches and
interpreting their dreams.
With her knowledge of their language, her
familiarity with their religion, and her Jungian training, Sonia
confounds her captors with her insights and beliefs. Meanwhile, when the
kidnappers decide to kill their captives, one by one, in retaliation
for perceived crimes against their country, Theo races against the clock
to try and save their lives.
