McMillan Palgrave
Will Law, a rising star in the U.S. Foreign Service, mysteriously walks away from his post and, in Paris, falls into the arms of his onetime lover Pedro. When the child of a mutual friend is kidnapped by a Nationalist gang, Will is reluctantly drawn back to the diplomatic world he abandoned. Fighting against a rising tide of French anti-immigrant hatred, the Americans launch a deperate search across the city. In the process, Will must challenge the moral burdens of his past, and in an attempt to rescue the child, he must also find a way to redeem himself.


Blackwell North Amer
Will Law is a rising star in the U. S. Foreign Service, who one day mysteriously walks away from his post. Unmoored, he drifts to Paris and back into the arms of his one-time lover Pedro, another American expatriate, who is studying French architecture. Both men have grown up in the world of American diplomats and have always been sensitive to the ties of identity and belonging.
But these notions aren't fully challenged until Will meets Jorie, a woman trapped in a loveless relationship with a Lebanese man. Will is quickly drawn into Jorie's fraught world when the young boy she's been caring for is kidnapped by a French Nationalist gang. Fighting against a rising tide of anti-immigrant hatred, the three Americans launch a desperate search across the city. In the process, Will must challenge the moral burdens of his past, and in an attempt to rescue the child, he must also find a way to redeem himself.
