When a retired diplomat travels to Paris to fulfill a dying friend’s wish, he finds himself embroiled into a baffling maze of danger and mystery that threatens to turn his promise into his epitaph.


Retired diplomat Sam Hough finds himself on a transatlantic flight to Europe when he makes a seemingly innocent promise to find the five-year-old son of a dying friend. A son that Curt had only recently learned about.

In the seamy neighborhoods of Paris, Sam quickly learns that those who agree to help him soon disappear. Those who stay refuse to help him, and still others want to kill him rather than help him find the boy. Was Curt being completely honest with him or did he purposely leave vital details out? But if so, why? His search through the narrow streets of Paris leads him to rekindle a long-lost romance and into a maze of suspicion, betrayal, and growing danger. 

In its shadows, the City of Light holds deadly secrets. Sam must get to the bottom of what’s really at the heart of Curt’s mysterious request before his promise turns into an epitaph.

For readers who enjoy thrillers by Graham Greene, John Le Carré, and Jack Slater.
