A gunman who has nothing to lose faces a doctor who could lose it all.
When Dr. Mark Baker and Nurse Kelly Atkinson are held hostage by a dangerous gunman, the life of every ER patient is at stake. At the end of the evening three men are dead, including two members of the feared Zeta drug cartel. Though the standoff is over, the killing is not, because when the drug cartel loses its members, revenge is not far behind.
When he finds himself under suspicion as a killer yet still a potential victim, Mark turns to an old friend for answers he needs in order to face an adversary whose desires are dark and whose efforts are ruthless. Who is the shooter? Who will the next victim be? And can Mark prove his innocence before the gun turns on him?
With the cartel on their heels and lawsuits threatening, Mark and Kelly must decide who to trust — and whether or not they can trust the Lord.
It seems anything that could possibly go wrong for Mark somehow does. At every turn, things get worse. Sometimes our own lives can feel much the same, and often we have to get to the end of ourselves before we turn to the Lord (unfortunately).
The theme of second chances plays out in Mark’s story, as he had strayed from the faith he had as a child. While the spiritual growth is a subtle part, Mark’s desire to find answers to his questions will hopefully encourage others to do the same.
With action and conflict at every turn, you’ll find it hard to set this story aside.
