Saving Sophie, the thrilling sequel to Ronald Balson’s international bestseller, Once We Were Brothers, reunites the team of Chicago private investigator Liam Taggart and attorney Catherine Lockhart. This time they are hired to find Jack Sommers, a Jewish attorney, who has disappeared with $88 million of his client’s money. We learn that Sommers has tragically lost his wife Alina to a sudden illness and that his father-in-law, Dr. Arif-al-Zahani, has kidnapped Sommers’ six-year-old daughter. Al-Zahani, a suspected Palestinian terrorist and part of the violent Sons of Canaan cell, resides in an impenetrable compound in the violent and dangerous West Bank city of Hebron. It is there he keeps Sophie and tries to turn her against her father and her American way of life. With the help of Israeli operative Kayla Cummings, Liam and Catherine strive to rescue Sophie and prevent an imminent terrorist attack.
