Facing a new threat.
When FBI Agent Clint Rollins takes a bullet during a standoff, it might just save his life. But not even the ugly things he’s seen during his years working in the Crimes Against Children Unit could prepare him for the overwhelming powerlessness of hospital tests revealing an unexpected diagnosis. If only Sara weren’t retreating into doctor mode…he needs his wife now more than ever.

Frozen in fear.
Sara Rollins is an oncologist with a mission–beating cancer when she can, easing her patients’ suffering at the very least. Now the life of her tall Texan husband is at stake. She never let the odds steal her hope before, but in this case, the question of God’s healing promises is personal. Can she hold on to the truth she claimed to believe?

Faith under fire.
As Clint continues to track down a serial kidnapper despite his illness, former investigations haunt his nightmares, pushing him beyond solving the case into risking his life and career. Clint struggles to believe God is still the God of miracles. Especially when he needs not one, but two. Everything in his life is reduced to one all-important question: Can God be trusted?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Welcome to my Life Wow. I expected this book to just be an FBI thriller about a man who kidnaps children. It was that, of course, but so much more. I appreciated that it wasn't graphic and that there was no molestation, although that's not likely in the real world. The surprise in this book came with the subplot. One of the FBI agents, Clint, gets diagnosed with Lymphoma. His wife, Sara, is an oncologist. The author did such a good job capturing the feelings of both the patient and his wife. She felt guilt at not diagnosing him earlier; their marriage was put under strain due to lack of intimacy, mood swings from steroids, fatigue, chemo-brain and Clint's reluctance to accept help. My husband had bone cancer ten years ago, and that time was very difficult. Now, it's just a bad memory, thank God, but reading this book reminded me how hard it must have been for him to be dealing with life and death issues at 35, and how no one cares for the caregiver. Sara had a hard time when her husband was bald and thin like her patients. I did, too. But afterwards, I think it made me a better oncology nurse. It's not just another day at the office. Cancer has a face, and a name, and a family, and a life. Their marriage, and ours, went from better to worse, to better again. Much better.
