Leathan Wilkey has been hired to make a ransom exchange.
He has the cash, a car, and a phone so the kidnappers can direct him to the location of the exchange for the seven-year-old boy. But it soon becomes clear that there are two groups demanding the ransom, and they can’t both have the kid.
And when Leathan finds the cash that he's been given might not be what the kidnappers are expecting, he questions whether he's the bag man or if he's been sent to draw fire.
Bullets fly and Leathan ducks. When he looks up, he's the only one who's concerned that a stray piece of lead might hit the kid.

Pediatrician Kent Abner received the package on a beautiful April morning. Inside was a cheap trinket, a golden egg that could be opened into two halves. When he pried it apart, highly toxic airborne fumes entered his body—and killed him.
After Eve Dallas calls the hazmat team—and undergoes testing to reassure both her and her husband that she hasn’t been exposed—it’s time to look into Dr. Abner’s past and relationships. Not every victim Eve encounters is an angel, but it seems that Abner came pretty close—though he did ruffle some feathers over the years by taking stands for the weak and defenseless. While the lab tries to identify the deadly toxin, Eve hunts for the sender. But when someone else dies in the same grisly manner, it becomes clear that she’s dealing with either a madman—or someone who has a hidden and elusive connection to both victims.
"The 50th book proves this series truly is the gold standard.” — Associated Press
When the author of a book about England's most famous Tudor monarch is murdered, Boniface realizes that handling the press and publicity for the book launch demands more than he expected. And when the man he is talking with is shot, then he witnesses as a third person is forcibly drowned, and he finds he is being pursued by a former Russian Special Forces soldier, Boniface runs.
He delays his death by trading the only thing of value he can offer his would-be assassin: details of a 500-year-old cover-up. The only difficulty in making the trade is that Boniface can't prove what he knows is true--yet.
If he finds and hands over the proof, the murderer has no incentive to keep him alive. If he lives, Boniface has to explain the transaction for his life to his capricious paymaster.
Boniface needs to unwrap what the dead author found, figure out why he was killed, protect his client's interests, and stay alive.
